The Dirty Gardener Tropica Maidenhair Ginkgo Biloba Bonsai Tree, 4 Seeds
Tropica - Maidenhair Tree (Ginkgo biloba) - 4 Seeds. Worth knowing: The Maidenhair Tree is a so-called cross between conifer and broad-leafed tree. Origin: Since 1750, the tree can be found again in Europe - biggest spreading area is Asia, however. Propagation: Seeds can be started indoors any time throughout the year. Rough the hazelnut-seized seeds slightly with sandpaper and leave them to soak in water at room temperature overnight. Place the seeds on moist seed starting soil afterwards and cover them thinly with soil. With temperatures about 20å¡ to 25å¡C, germination follows after 3 to 4 weeks. Cooler temperatures often lead to a doubling of the germination time. Place / Light: Any location is possible. It is only the seedlings and young plants that should be sheltered from direct sunlight. Care: Care for regular watering, otherwise leaves of younger plants will take on a yellowish color and will start hanging down. For the time of mid-April until October organic long-time fertilizer is suitable as nutrient supply. Winter period: Best is to leave the Gingko to grow naturally into its free, upright shape. Only new shoots should be pruned again and again, always leaving about 4 leaves. Bonsai Suitability: Yes.
