Germinating Areca seeds
By Eric Thompson
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
Chambeyronia macrocarpa 'Watermelon' Seeds
My largest Chambeyronia macrocarpa is producing a bodacious crop of seeds. This Chambey is 25-30' tall and is one of the coveted 'Watermelon' varieties with streaks of yellow on its trunk and crownshaft. This palm is large and robust with leathery dark green leaves. But its most astonishing feature is that new leaves open dark red to crimson before gradually fading to green, giving it the epithet "Flamethrower Palm." It is a spectacular, eye-catching palm from New Caledonia that is easy growing here in FL, unlike many other New Caledonia species. But it may be harder to find in the future as I've read that New Caledonia is cracking down on export of its native palms and seeds. If what I read is true, in the future only domestically grown seeds of this desirable species may be available. I have germinated a number of Chambeys from seeds and found their large seeds (~1" wide by 1.5" long) germinate easily and seedlings grow robustly. Now is your time to try this awesome species.

Sabal bermudana: Fresh Seeds
A few weeks ago I posted a topic about my seeding Sabal bermudana in the Discussing Palms subforum. Quick summary: In 2008 I received seeds of this endangered Sabal from a PTer who lives on Bermuda. Palm in the following photos is an offspring of that palm. It has started seeding but so far has produced very small crops of seeds held close to the trunk - perhaps because it evolved on a tiny island subject to North Atlantic winds. It grows shorter than other trunked Sabals, with a stocky trunk and round crown of blue/green leaves. I collected just under 200 seeds this month from my mother palm with no more in the offing this year. This species of Sabal is notable for tolerating cooler summers better than any other species, although it still loves as much sun and heat it can get. Regular water and occasional fertilizer increase its growth rate.
