  • What is little known however is that lumped under this name are several quite distinct species that occupy different habitats on the island of Madagascar.
  • This particular form is common in the northeast of the island. Is is more compact than the common form native to the east coast and has a smaller, shorther trunk, tightly packed leafbases that are dark, orangeish along the edges near the base and waxy whitish petioles. Germination: Soak the seeds for two days in lukewarm water. The seeds are sown in mineral-based cat litter (no clumping litter) or perlite (germ-free) in plastic-pots. Please sow the seeds on the mineral soil and cover the seeds with 5 mm - 10 mm mineral soil. Then put the plastic pot in a ziplock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm , a ziplock bag of size 12 x 17 cm is recommended . Fill in the ziplock bag as much tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer, so that after the absorption of the substrate a few mm of water remain on the bottom. Then close the ziplock bag. daytime temperatures at about 77-86 F, somewhat lower at night at 68-77 F. Germination takes 45 - 60 days
