Howdy, and happy new year.
Seems like I rot my Dypsis seeds, thoughts on how to germinate?
Thanks a heap for suggestions!
I was walking around the garden this morning and noticed my Dypsis ambositrae was flowering. Looks like its not going to set seed but hopefully next time it will. I'm not aware of any others flowering in CA but I'm sure someone's has.

I recently got around 100 Areca seeds from a plant in Niagara Falls. The majority of them still with the flesh on. I’ve tried using the baggie method with soil and perlite as well as paper towel with another group. It’s been 3 weeks and not seeing anything happening. I have now moved them into a done around 80 degrees. How long should I expect to see something happening. Thanks
Planted these out a couple of years ago and although I thought they were an attractive little palm, didn't pay a significant amount of attention to them.
Hilo Jason was over a couple of days ago and on one of our grand tours, we stopped and took a good look at this little palm. Never realized how colorful the thin stem was and the contrast with the deep green, thick, entire, lobed leaves. Starting to lightly clump and seed too.
Don't know how successful these would be in California, but it would be a nice palm for a small space or area.

I was out watering last evening and took a closer look at one of my potted Dypsis rosea which looked funny. I, admittedly, don't check on these too often. It's very sheltered, in the back, and small, so I'm not sure how long this has been like this, but it appears that the stem is basically snapped near the base. The top of the plant is still green.
This might be related to the awful Santa Anas we had almost two weeks ago, but I think I might have noticed it before last night. Plus, it was very sheltered with a block wall on one side. Anyone ever have something like this happen before? Prospects for survival?
