This species is particularly fond of tropical environments and is especially prevalent in the more moist areas of eastern parts of South Africa and northern Limpopo.
Nothing can be easier than cultivating this handsome tree as it can simply be grown from seeds. Soak the seeds in warm water overnight to allow water to penetrate the leathery testa (seed coat) and the next morning sow in seedling trays containing a 5:1 mixture of river sand and compost. The seedlings can either be transplanted into black nursery bags when they have two leaves, or directly into the ground. It will grow optimally in humus-rich, sandy soil and requires watering every second or third day depending on weather conditions. Naturally the tree occurs in frost-free areas.
