Hello, i am growing a baobab in my backyard but am having trouble distinguishing the baobab from other fern-like plants that are growing nearby, do new baobabs have unfilled fern like leaves?

No baobab's are in the picture.
Need to look for this:



Did you propper soften up the seeds in a few days in water, and did you carve a bit off the hard shell, so it is easer for the seed to sprout?

I did soak and soften the shells, I saw it germinate but never saw a sprout, ill try raising it in its own pot next time. Thank you for your reply.
