What do you think of my protection method?
Here's how I'm attempting to protect my palms: I wrapped a couple of little filiferas in Christmas lights and attached a thermo cube. I've done this to just the trunk before and it was fine, but in my climate I can expect total defoliation every year. I'm trying to avoid that by binding the fronds and wrapping all the way to the top.
Is there any way this will backfire on me?

Who Grows Larger Sabal minor In Pots?
Who here grows larger (as in older) Sabal minor in pots? How is their growth rate? I might put a bunch in pots because I may end up moving (locally) and it would suck if I planted a bunch in the ground just to leave them in the next year.
How to germinate Cycas siamensis Dwarf seeds
Today I received seeds of Cycas siamensis Dwarf. I haven't germinated cycad seeds before so can someone give me germination instructions? Do I treat them as if they were palm seeds: soak 24-48 hours, sow in community pot, cover with a thin layer of potting mix? Thanks for any help.
These are the seeds I received.
Roystonea Royal palm seed viability
I got some fresh seeds from a royal palm (Roystonea Regia), and I'm wondering how long it takes to lose viability it's winter here I do have a green house but it gets cold during the nights (10-15 C / 50-60F).
I think it's best to wait t'ill May and plant them during the hot period but I'm afraid that at this time they will lose their viability, In my experience most of palm tree seeds tend to lose viability quickly after harvesting.
PS : During the day the temperature in my green house is around 30-35C / 85-95F sunny days only.
What do you think, is it better to wait 6-7 months and plant them ?
