Eucalyptus deglupta is very easy from seed and a fast grower.
Several nurseries in the South Florida area (Homestead) will offer this.
I can't imagine a Baobab of that size being available.

You can buy Baobob tree seed on line also. I don't think you will find a full grown one anywhere that isn't well attached to the ground. Hopefully that measurement was a mistake.

Both these trees get HUGE. The Baobob won't be huge in your lifetime so would be a good potted plant candidate.

If you want a Eucalyptus deglupta because of the vividly purple shreddy trunks seen on line, you will be disappointed - those are all color enhanced photos.

Good luck on your quest!
