Blue latan palm
12 degrees Celsius
Beautiful palm tree which originates from Mauritius, however it has almost gone extinct in its original growing area due to the destruction of its habitat. At a young age the palm produces leaves with red nerves, which in time will colour blue-gray and become sturdy. It is a rare relative from the Bismarckia palm from Madagascar and grows well indoors.
Soak the seeds for 48 hours in lukewarm water and afterwards sow in a deep container filled with sowing mix. Keep the soil constantly moist (not wet) at a temperature of around 25-30 degrees Celcius.
All year round.
