When we closed the festival together, you got some tree seeds when leaving the dance floor. You can grow these into your own tree! But to have a bigger chance of success, we want to share some growing tips/instructions with you.
The seeds you got, are Robinia seeds (known as black locust/false acacia, Robinia Pseudoacacia). You can plant these seeds throughout the year. The seeds need to be in moist sand and in a warm spot for a few weeks, with daily stirring. As soon as they germinate, they can be put in a plant pot.
This is an easily growing tree, which can be kept in check in a plant pot. The leaves are long and pinnate, and they grow from well thorned branches. The beautiful flower clusters carry a massive amount of butterfly flowers (Fabaceae), which smell lovely. In the end, the purple, maturing to brown, pods grow.
Do share it with us when your own tree grows! 🌳
