botanical issue

botanical souvenir lisboa

A peculiar botanical souvenir from our visit at Jardim Botânico in Lisbon last month.
The bottom picture shows what it looked like at first.
Once at home the 'rubber tree blossom' orange seeds popped out.
The seeds have dried in the meantime.
I wonder if I can use the seeds to grow our own rubber tree (ficus elastica )...
Tips anyone?


  1. Wauw dat zou toch gaaf zijn als het je lukt om je eigen rubberboompje te kweken!
    Laat je het ons weten als het je gelukt is?

  2. i think you can try with your green thumbs :-)
    put the pot in a warm place in your home.
