Araucaria araucana x A. angustifolia F2

A rare hybrid obtained in Argentina from a population of trees grown from seed obtained by pollinating A. araucana with A. angustifolia pollen. The resulting plants have interesting properties, combining the cold hardiness and robustness of A. araucana with the faster growth of A. angustifolia. Seeds need no pretreatment and are best sown by sticking the pointed end in the ground until only the top of the seed is showing.

Seeds from this species ...

... are average to germinate and need up to 3 months to sprout.
The more fresh are the seeds, the sooner they will germinate. Soak the seeds in a warm watter for a day or so, insert the seeds`s top down into the moist acidic light well-drained soil taken from genuine pine-tree wood, vermiculite, or rough sand also can be used. Cover the seeds by approx 80 percent with the same soil and expose to filtered light at +20 degrees Celsius, mist the seeds using water spray regularly to keep them slightly moist, but not wet or damp. Check the seeds every several days, gently touching them with your finger. When you feel them fixated to the soil gently remove germinated seed with its taproot and plant it to the deep pot (larger - better), mist it, and expose to the filtered light.

The Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms is the definitive account of all palms that can be grown for ornamental and economic use. Palms are often underutilized as a result of their unfamiliarity—even to tropical gardeners. To help introduce these valuable plants to a new audience, the authors have exhaustively documented every genus in the palm family.
825 species are described in detail, including cold hardiness, water needs, height, and any special requirements. Generously illustrated with more than 900 photos, including photos of several palm species that have never before appeared in a general encyclopedia, The Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms is as valuable as an identification guide as it is a practical handbook. Interesting snippets of history, ethnobotany, and biology inform the text and make this a lively catalog of these remarkable plants.
