Is this seed viable?( Seeds from Ebay)
By Cocos korea
Today I received my order from ebay!
5 Bismarckia seeds,
3 Dwarf Areca catechu
1 Cocos nucifera
The cocos was small but healthy:)
However the problem is (beside they came with their fruits and pests )
My Areca catechu 'dwarf' seeds don't look good. They look much smaller than I remember. The seeds were rattling when I shook the fruit.
The good point is that the seed goes directly to bottom like a rock when I put it in water.
How do you think about this seed?
Do they look viable?
Areca catechu dwarf seeds at RPS - for real?
I see RPS has listed Areca catechu Dwarf seeds for sale in its latest price list. Has anyone here tried them? Did they germinate? What %, i.e. how many, of those seedlings turned out to be true dwarf palms? The listing does not provide any clues and I don't want to spend a fortune for typical garden variety Areca catechus. I'm sure other people wonder the same thing. Thanks to all.

I've finally ordered an indoor palm I've always wanted called Licuala grandis, does anyone have any tips on growing this one correctly? Potting media? Lighting? Humidity? I can put it in my sunny bathroom with high humidity if it will be happy in there. Not a ton of growing info I could find. Thank you
5m Howea forsteriana transplant stress
My first post on Palm Talk is in a bid to find someone who has witnessed transplant stress of a large Howea forsteriana. March (early autumn) last year I dug up and moved an impressive 5m specimen. I have moved a number of large plants with 100% success yet have never moved something quite like this incredible palm which whilst still alive is at a point where it needs to turn the corner. Adelaide Australia experienced an exceptionally cold long drawn out winter and in hindsight I should have waited until the next spring to move. I am not confident this palm will survive and I would be extraordinarily grateful to hear from anyone that has a similar story to compare my palm to. some people may find pictures distressing
Grass or palm?
Is this grass or one of the cyrtostachys renda seeds that I planted 3 weeks ago, sprouting?
Thanks and Happy New Year
