Black Forest.....  with seven dwarfs..... and a black hat..  All I know is that 'Colorado' is a movie.... hi hi hihiih ihi

Congratulation Dand......very peculiar name.....

Which species is it, would be interesting to know what seed is available, but I guess  A. digitata ?  Dont plan to do any transplanting in the next year!  Dont even tell the tree...  Next time seed it in a smaller pot, that it can stay in for 3 years...  But nice gritty mix!

This seedling is a Adansonia za. I also have some Adansonia suarezensis seeds planted this week, we'll see how those turn out. The Za reacted when I exposed them to warmer temperatures, so I'm going right for the warmer temps with the Adansonia suarezensis.

First name is "Dan", last initial is D.

I'll keep calm and just let it grow slow, I'm in no hurry.

It is amazingly hard to find one of these things already growing here in the US, though seeds seem to be cheap. So, makes me wonder if it's chance of surviving is small. Guess I'll find out.

Thanks for giving me the Baobab Bug Andre, it's all your fault! Very Happy

As I said before, I know nothing about this type of tree but I like yours very much. The top/crown in particular is very impressive and would make a nice tree on it's own.

However, I must confess that in your latest photo my eye keeps being drawn to the two parallel branches on the right hand side. I didn't remember them from earlier posts but looking back I see that they were always there so perhaps it is only the viewing angle in this photo that makes them apparent?

Have you considered removing one or changing the front view slightly? I'm not suggesting that you should necessarily just wondering whether you see what I see (it may just be me Rolling Eyes ). Also there is quite a gap in the branching on the left, can you thread or approach graft with this species? Again not suggesting that it is necessary, the tree is very impressive anyway but just wondering all the same.

Thanks for the update.

Regards

Richard

Damn, that baobab is getting seriously good. Better than ever.

I see what Richard S was referring to, the parallel branches on the right. It looks like in person it is likely not a problem, the upper branch is a back branch, the lower of the two is forward. But in a static photo it does present a parallel branch look.

I certainly could not do this nice a job with a baobab. Has it started flowering for you yet?
