Here I have 4 sporatically sprouts.  The largest germinated after about 10 weeks and the fourth (barely visible) just showed up yesterday!  Thanks Dave!

About 80% of mine germinated - 2 or 3 rotted out, and a couple still waiting.  About half have pushed the first leaf 1-2" tall.

OUCH

If you lose them, I have some more. Try, try again.

These are tough, best thing for tough palm climes. Purty too.

Sure, but give the remaining seeds a squeeze. If they're still hard, keep waiting, don't throw them away. Some seeds take forever to sprout.

WHOO HOO!

Happy obscenities screamed.

That's a great palm for you guys up there. It really takes the cold, and the heat and scares off thugs.

"Free Trithrinax seed"

Dave,

I just potted up my 2-year-old seedlings - they've got 3 leaves now and are doing quite well!  :)  I'm having some internet issues so I'll post some photos later.

I wanted to ask about the species - is it a hybrid or is it either brasiliensis or acanthacoma?  I can't tell the difference from photos I saw in Palmpedia, but it did say that brasiliensis has a white inflorescence rather than yellow and acanthacoma has a leaf much deeper divided, and much more glaucous (according to Nigel).  Both seem to be very cold hardy and attractive regardless of which one it is!

Here is one of my seedlings after about 1 year's growth...I mistakenly said 2 years old, but it's only been one.

Recently moved all mine up into 3 gallon containers.  They are pretty slow growers overall, but tough plants.  Only issue has been snails/slugs liking to chew on new growth.

      A recently completed addition to my garden in Bloemfontein.  I planted three Trithrinax campestris & a Livistona decora.  I'll add ground cover etc later.

      Hi Everyone
      Can anyone please assist with identifying this palm.  I suspect it is Trithrinax  schizophylla.

      Here's my big Trithrinax acanthacoma blooming for the 2017 crop of seed.

      I have some fresh (ripe and still on the palms) seeds of C. adscendens and C. tepejilote.  Free to anyone in the US - respond here or in PM with address.  For anyone not in the US, international shipping has become a bit expensive, but I might consider it if there is some interesting seed offered in trade.
