SAFLAX Potting Set - Grandidier's Baobab - Adansonia grandidieri - 2 seeds - With mini greenhouse, potting substrate and 2 pots

Water-storing prehistoric landmark of Madagascar!

Our set contains everying for a successful cultivation. Coming with a a little mini greenhouse 17 (L) x 10 (W) x 13 (H) cm, germfree and permeable potting substrate based on coconut fiber (dried block) and 2 coconut fiber pots for later transplanting.


With its capacity to store enormous amounts of water, the Grandidier's Baobab adopted perfectly to the very common phenomenon of water shortage in Madagascar, which is also the only natural spreading area of the plant. The tree develops a reddish-grey coloured and rather slender, but mighty trunk with a wide cantilevered crown. In its natural habitat, the Grandidier's Baobab carries foliage from October until May, and produces between May and August its white flowers that open up in the evening and exhale a watermelony scent.

Natural Location: The natural habitat of the Malagasy Baobab is the Southwest of Madagascar, between Lac Ihotry near Morombe and Bereboka.

Cultivation: Seed propagation indoors is possible throughout the year. Without treatment the seeds will have a rather low germinability, but with a small trick you can hugely increase the odds: Dash the seeds with hot boiling water and keep them in the water for one day. Then, plant the seeds slightly spreaded about 1 cm deep into moist potting compost and keep the earth moist, but not wet. With a temperature between 23°C and 27°C the seeds should shoot after three to seven weeks. There will be nothing much happening on the surface by then, and it will take another four to six weeks of root formation, until the seedlings grow aerial. After three months, you can plant your little Monkey Bread Trees, using a mix of two parts of earth, one part of clay and one part of sand.

Place: You should offer your Monkey Bread Tree a place in the room or conservatory, where it gets much light and warmth. Starting from May, the Baobab can be kept outdoors in a tub on your balcony or porch. There, it will feel comfortable in the bright and warm sunlight, and will because of its African origin also resist the blazing sun.

Care: Younger plants need to be watered more often and the earth is to be kept continuously moist. Matured trees, however, can endure longer dry periods - perfect if you like to travel sometimes. You can fertilize the plant every four to six weeks except during the dry season if it casts the leaves.

During Winter: The Adansonia grandidieri hibernates in a bright place with a minimum temperature of 15° Celsius. Water the plant every four weeks, so that the roots don't dry out completely.

Bonsai ability: No
