Acer palmatum
Red fan maple 

Acer palmatum, also called red fan maple is a frost-hard Japanese tree, approx. 3 - 5m high, much appreciated because of the delicate fern-like foliage, which turns dark purple in spring, dark green in summer and dark scarlet in autumn. Acer palmatum prefers fresh, moist soil and a sunny to half shady spot. Can be used as, container plant or bonsai.

 For sowing, use Jiffy peat wells, swell in water and place in a plastic pot. 

Spread some seeds on the peat pot and cover thinly with the sowing substrate (about 2 mm).

Then put the plastic pot in a zip-lock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm we recommend a zip-lock bag of size 120 x 170 mm. Put enough tap water in the ziplock bag with a few drops of universal fertilizer so that a few millimeters of water remain after the substrate has been absorbed. Close the zip-lock bag airtight.

Location: on the windowsill or in a miniature greenhouse partially shaded, during the day the temperatures should be around 24 - 28 C, at night slightly lower at 20 - 24 C. The microclimate created creates ideal germination conditions.


price is for 15 seeds
