SAFLAX Gift Set - Bonsai - Tamarind - Tamarindus indica - 4 seeds - With gift box, card, label and potting substrate

Delicate pinnate leaves collapsing at night / Indoor Bonsai

Mail a growing gift to a friend. Coming with the seeds you chose, a little box (17 x 12 x 2 cm) ready to mail, sticker to label the box, greeting card for your personal notes and germfree and permeable potting substrate based on coconut fiber (dried block) in a stand-up bag. This way your friend will be ready to start right away when your gift arrives.

The Tamarind is an evergreen tree with a greyish-black bark. Its longish pinnate leaves are folding in at night, but they don't react to touching. The flower buds are red coloured. The perianth contains yellow sepals and three yellow and red coloured petals with a green frame. Only the three fertile stamens feature on their lower ends connate filaments.

Natural Location: Originally the Tamarind comes from East Africa. From there it spread to India and became a crop plant in the dry regions of tropical and subtropical South-East Asia.

Cultivation: Seed propagation indoors is possible throughout the year. To increase the germinability, you should place the seeds for about 12 hours in warm water for priming. Then, plant the seeds about 0,5 cm deep in moist potting compost and cover the seed container with clear film to prevent the earth from drying out. Don't forget to make some holes in the clear film and take it every second or third day completely off for about 2 hours. That way you avoid mold formation on your potting compost. Place the seed container somewhere bright and warm with a temperature between 20° C and 25° Celsius and keep the earth moist, but not wet. Usually it takes only 10 to 14 days until germination.

Place: The Tamarind prefers a full sunny place. During summer it can also be kept in a full sunny spot outdoors.

Care: The Tamarind needs rather less watering. Just keep the plant always moist and avoid waterlogging in the saucer. Between April and October it is recommended giving fluid fertilizer for bonsai plants every three to four weeks. If your plant doesn't get enough water, it will cast the leaves to minimize the evaporation. The branches are best be pruned during the growth period from May until August. Wait until the plant develops five to six leaves on a new branch, and then cut back to only one or two leaves. Young plants should be repotted every three years in spring and before sprouting - later, every five years would be sufficient. Shift the bonsai after a brief root cutting into a new pot with proper bonsai earth.

During Winter: Younger plants are sensitive to cold temperatures. Older Tamarinds are more resistant and can be kept outdoors as long as there are no frosts. To prevent the usually evergreen tree from casting the leaves, it should be kept in a bright spot with a temperature of at least 15° Celsius during winter. However, if it still casts the leaves due to not enough light, your plant also needs to be watered accordingly less.

Bonsai ability: Yes
