Steps to grow a baobab from seeds successfully:

Baobab Pods:

When you’re done using it, open your baobab pod and harvest the inner seeds.


Baobab Seeds:
Slightly crack or sand the outer seed coat and let it soak overnight (for one or two nights) in warm water.

 

Soil: 

Your best choice is cactus soil. Mix it with sand. The ratio should be 2:1.

 

Pot:

Fill it with soil and spare the top three centimeters.

 

Sowing: 

Take the soaked seeds and put them on top of the soil in the pot. Cover them with a two-centimeter- layer of sand. This helps to avoid waterlogging which baobab do not like at all.

 

Care: 

Water the seeds regularly – about every two to three days should be alright. Do not allow the seeds to dry out.

 

Light:

To germinate, baobab seeds need a combination of warmth, nutrients and sufficient water. Best place the pot on a sunny spot at a window, on the balcony or the terrace.

 

Heat: 

Seeds require a warm environment – make sure that the temperatures are around 20 degree.
