Frankies are quite hardy to moisture and shade, all different from the armata seedlings.

I've found that to be true as well.

I came up with the idea to put my seeds Dypsis lanceolata on a cable set-top box, because from below he heats and actually from the inside the seeds a sweat :) E08Nn0e.jpg

1519234196004-755284217.thumb.jpg.c0a552The majority of mine seem fine. After cleaning they sank like pebbles into the water to soak. Just have to wait to see what happens. May just take a bit more time and patience. " Good things come to those that wait" Not giving up on them. The embryo looks fine to me. Much appreciation to Dooms Dave for the seeds. Every seed is a new experience.

Did they sink?

Even if they didn't, I'd plant them anyway. I cleaned them, but some got a bit cleaner than others.

I always give the seeds that don't sink a little extra time in the soaking water, usually I find that if they don't sink right away, when I  do a  daily water change they do. I'll sow all of them anyway, never know.

I don't make no cleaning them any way, that's part if the enjoyment. Thanks again Dave. I've learned alot reading your posts.

The most recent batch of Lancie seeds were cleaned; the previous batches were all moldy, but they still grew.

Sometimes, a bit of the old fruit still sticks, and they tend to float.

Plant anyway, and wait.

If they don't sprout, there's more.

@DoomsDave Some sink some float. I plant them anyway. I don't give up. Some day they will sprout.

Good an alla' ya!

Remember, these plants are a bit on the fragile side, compared with Chamadorea radicalis. But they're really pretty, a nice dark green, slender, nice for indoors.

Put mine uncleaned in the mulch of a potted palm and about half sprouted.

      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?
