Dypsis Onilahensis Seed Germination

Recommended Posts

Anyone know when the Dypsis Onilahensis seed is viable to germinate? My seed is green now, do I need to wait until it turns red? Also, what is the best method to germinate them? Thanks!

If it's the weeping form it won't turn red, they stay a green colour. Once a few fall to the ground and the seed can easily be extracted from the fruit (by squeezing it in your fingers) they are ready to germinate. There are many different germination methods.

The upright form I have turns orange. I think the a lot of these Dypsis germinate a better with bottom heat, I collected some seed of a really nice onilihensis in early May in Hawaii & even with the warm summer temps they were the last seeds to pop for me. So figure up to 3-4 months in ideal settings.

Thanks guys for the info. Last time it flowered I cut a lower branch off and broke the flower!

Also, my Lanceolata  is flowering too and it was originally sold as a Pembana. But the ruffled leaves look much more like a Lanceolata. I can't find any pics of Lanceolata vs. Pembana seed. Do the seeds look the same between the two? Would that solve the mystery? Josh you told me too that it was probably a Lanceolata!

Darrin, When you get a chance post a picture. They are real easy to tell apart when they are big but can be hard to tell when they are seedlings/1 gal palnts

I've found most Dypsis take a while to sprout, a good couple of months, though some can take longer.

      Recently acquired some A. crispa seeds and cracked the outer shell (I’ve heard it helps shave lots of time off germination). Does anyone have success with any specific methods or know how the endocarps themselves like to be treated? Any advice  would be much appreciated!

      Hello I was wondering if people could share how they germinate W. Filifera and Robusta seeds, I am wondering what the ideal temperature for germination is, as I have my Filifera seeds in a pot at room temperature with the soil at around 67 F, will they germinate?

      New to seed germination indoors as I've previously just bought potted palms. I've discovered with a couple species that potted purchased palms that don't do well indoors....and die, do much better if grown from seed.
      I'm using baggie method and heat mats and trays with pretty good luck.
      My question is, when is the best time to plant them up and also to remove  from any bottom heat?  I don't want to "cook" the new seedlings. 
      Are heat mats only supposed to be  used to get seed to "pop"?
