An incredible living thing in the world! I have to tell that one, at least once in a life, should visit Madagascar to observe this amazing Baobab tree, especially at the "Avenue de Baobab" where you will find these gigantic tree along the road and wait for the sunset. I'm sure, you will never forget...like me.

One of the easier baobabs to germinate after seed scarification and soaking. Initially growth is quite rapid and a smooth trunk soon forms, great for bonsai. Found it easy to coax back into leaf again after dormancy, even here in the damp and chilly UK! Give as much sun as possible and do not over-water especially near dormancy.
