Kuchlar, I'm curious where you got the bauhinia seeds from? They're truly exotic beautiful shrubs/trees (I don't know how tall yours will grow to). When it is older like a couple years old, will you be able to plant it outside permanently? I read that they can continue blooming over a period of several months - a real feast for the eyes! Shocked

I know some can take a bit of light frost even though it's native to India. Some parts of India can get fairly cool in winter. We have a large population of Indian people here, most from the Punjab, & while our climate here , both summer & winter, is colder than the Punjab, it's not a big difference usually.

Please keep us updated about your new seedling. I love to know how plants that I'm interested in do for others & perhaps I can learn something about growing them from you. Maybe you can post photos of i as it grows so we can see its progress.

Hope your weather isn't as miserable as ours. I can't really complain as we've had no disastrous weather but it feels like winter is here. It's dreary, wet & raining most of the time & far too dark & cold outside to enjoy being outside at all. I'm busy in my kitchen more now making breads, soups, stews, & hot nourishing winter type foods instead. Razz

I'm including a photo of a couple of bauhinia species so others can see what gorgeous blooms they have. It's also called the orchid tree although it's not really an orchid.

Hi iso, i am also newbie in growing bauhinias...i got the seed from one friend who lives in Nish Serbia, her friend was on holiday in turkey and there collected the seeds... i got two seeds and both of them germinated fast, i know that very important for successful germination is the freshness of the seeds that is the reason why i did not wait the spring for planting... only one seedling survived and is growing well now it has three true leaves..
i don’t think that i can plant it outside, winters here can be very harsh (-17) ill try to grow it like potted plant...
from other exotics i also have one baby grevillea robusta, two plumerias and small jacaranda mimosifolia is their first winter and i am little worried..

here is also rainy Sad but we had very dry summer and this rain is good for the plants, as you said there isn’t any sunny day to enjoy colourful autumn Sad

I had more than 10 B.tomentosa plants. They are now about 20cm. I have also B.hirsuta (fragrance white bauhinia), and B.galpinii

B.tomentosa in Bali is a sacral tree. In every Hindu's temple U must find it
