Hey there
Got them - thank you very much! I'm very impressed with your packaging and vacuum sealing - top notch.
I'll certainly post any progress!

Just wondering the specifics of the parentage?
Best, Jude

Hello Jude,

Parentage is Butia Odorata x Syagrus R.

Best Regards

Erik

Just as a reminder. These seeds like it hot. 87F to 97F bottom heat. Here are some photos of ours germinating right now. 3 months out. They usually go dormant doing the winter months and come out like gang busters in the spring again.

Here is the status of my Mule seed. I stared germinating on 9/1/11, by the baggie method with perlitle. I used minimal heat inside a heated enclosure. As of 11/13/11 I have had 15 seed germinate out of 100. It is still early in the germinating stage. I also worked with Mark & Eric on supplying S. coronata pollen for a Butia X Coronata hybrid. The last pic is a Butia X Coronata seedling. My past experience w/ S. coronata has been ~ 11 moths for germination. Time will tell, but at least they have started to pop for now. Mark has perfected the germination process with his solar heated hot bed. I would expect higher germination rate from his process. I will post more in the future.

Thank you for the update and photos Mike. Mark has only had one Butia x Coronata sprout. I believe they were planted around the same time as yours. I will check the dates on them. We still have no germination on the Butia x Jubaea or Butia X Parajubaea but they were planted 3 weeks later.

I would like to do a little promotion. So I am giving my xbutyagrus F1 seed away. This offer is only good to certified nurseries or growers. This offer is also good for overseas nurseries as well.

Why am I doing this?

1. I would like to send these to certified growers and nurseries who are experienced so I can average out there germination rates for this hybrid.

2. I would like to show you that you will get all Butyagrus from this seed. No Butias No guessing game.

3. And of course I would like your future business.

The catch.

You have to be interested in selling this hybrid or other butia hybrids at your nursery.
You have to report your germination rates.
You have to show your photos of the process in this thread.

The first ones to respond get 100 F1 xbutyagrus seed while supplies last.

Let the germination games begin.



Eric,

Is this offer still available?

Thanks,
Debra

Is Mike the only person for whom these seeds have sprouted? :unsure: Thought there may have been more reporting by now. :bemused:

There have been a few who contacted me in private as well. I did however think there would be more as I did send out to over 30 people.

Normally they start slowing down this time of year in Florida yet they still are sprouting for us.

Well with all this buzz ... I checked my seeds & low & behold I have my first sprout !!! I wasn't expecting anything for a while (I thought they take up to a year). I have them in a closed tupperware with bottom heat in 50/50 perlite & peat moss. Hopefully more to follow.

I had a few more pop. One of them was a double sprout. I have seem a relative large number of these doubles in Marks liner nursery. They both grow to full size. I usually separate them at liner stage & both survive. BTW, the second pic is the Butia X Cocconut hybrid that I have been growing from Marks stock. It is totally unarmed at this stage & developing a weeping look to it. It has seen considerable Sun for a couple of years now, so it is not weeping due to shade.

Mark Lynn put one of his Butia X Coconut's in the ground around August. It only gets partial sun as there are many tall oak trees surrounding it. It does not seem to be weeping like yours is. It is not armed yet either. It still looks Butia to me only time will tell.

He has been pollinating again with the Cocos pollen all fall. Everything so far has aborted.

Whoa, things are getting interesting!

Curious to know what's happened.

I have had very low germination rates on hybrid Archontophoenix alexandrae "Beatrice" X cunninghamiana.

Keeping an eye on the coconut X Butea hybrids. That will be a treat, too.

We experience around 5% triples and 15% double germination on seeds. This year I pulled 2 Quads. You can choose to separate at a later date if you wish when the seed drops.
