Adansonia Digitata also known as Baobab, Cream of Tartar tree, Monkey-Bread tree, Lemonade tree (English); kremetartboom (Afrikaans); isiMuku, umShimulu or isiMuhu (Zulu); ximuwu (Tsonga); mowana (Tswana) and muvhuyu (Venda).

 

Adansonia Digitata are native to the African continent, and is considered as one of the largest succulent plants in the world and its maximum age (up for discussion) is in the area of 1500 years. The features of this plant are; a stem which is covered with a bark (roughly 50 – 100ml thick), the bark is greyish brown in colour, usually the bark is smooth but due to years of growth the bark can become variously folded. The leaves of the Adansonia Digitata are usually hand size but when Bonsaied they will be of a smaller scale, and the leaves are divided into 5-7 finger-like leaflets. As the Adansonia Digitata is not evergreen the leaves will be dropped during the winter months and will appear again in late spring or early summer. The Adansonia Digitata has white flowers which emerge late afternoon from round buds and are sweetly scented, the flowers fall after 24hours while turning brown and loosing their pleasant fragrance. The fruit is an egg shaped capsule covered by yellowish brown hairs, the fruit has a hardy, woody outer shell with a dry powdery substance inside that covers the kidney shaped seeds.

 

The Adansonia Digitata is a slow growing tree, so your Bonsai may take time to grow but the journey of shaping and growing your Bonsai will be rewarding. Please note the young Adansonia Digitata does not resemble their adult counterparts.

 

The best time to plant your seeds are in spring and summer (due to longer daylight times and warmer weather).

The grow pellets already contain a seedling germination fertiliser so it is not necessary to add more.

Take the small grow pellets and gently add water. Once they are fully expanded you will see the size to fit grow pellet inside the coco peat grow pots. Slightly fill the base with the bonsai soil. Place the expanded grow pellet onto of the soil and fill around the edges to keep the pellet sturdy but do not apply to much pressure. You can refill around the edges if needed once watered but try and avoid covering the grow pellet where your seed wants to sprout. Place the seed inside the expanded grow pellet not more than 2 thirds of the seeds depth under the coco peat. Water generously with a fine mist spray and keep moist during germination. Avoid heavy watering as this will potentially wash away the cover sprouting medium or disturb your seeds.

What you get : 

3 x coco peat pots
3 x coco peat grow pellets
3 x Baobab seeds

1 x pack of bonsai soil
