Anyone want some more?

If I've sent you envelopes before, I don't care. I've got a lot of seed. Send me a private message with your address again.

If you have a palm society that wants to use some for a seed bank, let me know. (Come visit and I'll give a garden tour.)

This is a small part of what I have left. My Archies are having a free love, Roman orgy, with the predictable results.

The seedlings I have now seem to love the heat and are pushing new growth constantly. They are in mostly shade but they do get filtered light throughout the early day and even got some direct sunlight at around 2 to 3pm. They just want water!

Hi Dave, I'll take more if you still have some? I can use as many as you can send.

Hi Dave. Am interested in some Archontophoenix tuckeri seed. Thank you so much for your generosity. Have sent you my address as a personal message.

Thanks once again for your kindness. If there is any seed you would like from India, message me. I'll do my best to try and get it for you.

You're welcome!

You want some more?

Mine are sprouting too, a big giant pot of them.

Instead of the movie "Frogs" it could be "Archontophoenix" . . . . (Today La Habra! Tomorrow . . . the world!)

Okay, there are still seeds.

If you want, PM

(Josh, holding yours till your visit . . . :))

Okay, first, dont' worry about mold.

Don't worry about the fact that I didn't clean the seed.

Who do I look like, Mr. Meticulous? :indifferent:

I just tossed these into some water.

Yeah yeah, yeah they float, because the fruit, etc., is all dry.

post-208-0-72394500-1441684991_thumb.jpg

But, no thang.

post-208-0-45202200-1441685089_thumb.jpg

Crack open the dried fruit, and out pops this little nut that sinks like a bit of gravel.

Again, I didn't clean the seed, just tossed them (okay, placed them) onto the top of a pot of potting soil.

Cover with a thin layer of dirt.

Trava, that's good to know.

So your plant is about 4 years old from seed.

That's about the size I planted my now-seeding specimens, which are now about 6 - 8 M (18 - 24 feet) tall.

Full sun, plenty of water, ZOOOOM to the Moon!

Took half of them and soaked them for a week, 'till you (Dave) said not to worry about cleaning. That was about 3 weeks ago. Then a week ago I just took the other half and planted after soaking overnight. Nothing yet in either batch.

After reading all of the success stories, I might need more advice, patience, or seeds.
