Phoenix canariensis, 10 fresh seeds of Canary Island Date Palm
from Botanical Garden - Plovdiv nursery
The Canary Island Date Palm comes from deserted areas on the Canary islands. Despite it's powerful root system, it does not tolerate drought, when grown in pot. This is easily visible, when the leaf tips start to turn yellow and dry. In winter it should be kept cool, down to 0 degrees Celsius. It needs much sun to be able to develop it's full glory. If the surrounding air is very dry, this palm will still thrive, as long as it is watered regularly.
The seeds need to be placed in a well drained substrate, where they will germinate in a month time.
