Hi All,

 

This is my first post. I got into Palms a couple of months ago. Had some good success germinating Trachycarpus F, Butia O, Washingtonia R and Brahea A. 

 

I am just trying my luck at Jubaea C. These were the first two to germinate via the baggy method. 

 

The one on the right did not look so great and did not appear to have any root. After potting them both up though that one is growing the fastest. Hope a root does grow. 

 

Paul. 

Welcome Paul

I have heard Jubaea seeds are hard to germinate ...congrats...never done it myself but I have a little baby one...

Thanks for the replies. I have definitely caught the palm tree bug and having fun germinating seeds and trying different methods.

3 of my Hyophorbe verschaffeltii seeds been germinated :)

 @Pal Meir Pal, which portion should I use as media 1/3 pine bark+ 1/3 potting soil + 1/3 Seramis? or different?

should I keep them indoor?

Yes, Caryotas have remote germination, but I think the seed petiole won’t grow so long. (It isn’t a Bismarckia.)

And here another photo for your family album; :greenthumb: Adonidias can grow more than one radicle.

It looks like you guys just place the seed on top of the soil? I may have made a mistake...

H. verschaffeltii is growing on calcareous soils in full sun. I would leave the seedling indoors, but it depends on the temps you have. A well draining mineral rich standard mix would be okay, I think. It should not be too acidic.

Looking at an old picture of germinated seeds from my specimen, I am inclined to say that it is a remote germinator.

Hmmm, typically it looks like this (e.g. Rh. augusta): :indifferent:

I too guess that it is not a Rhopaloblaste. It looks more like a Dictyosperma or so. The reddish margins may be distinctive. You should post this photo on a new thread “Seedling ID please”, I would propose. What is the size of the seed? Ca. 8x16mm?

Oops, that wasn’t the correct photo because there stands still "pinnate" and not "bifid" … :mrlooney:  The correct photo will come later …

Finally the leaf has pushed the shell :) ...Pal @Pal Meir, should I keep it in full sun even from now? when should I bring it inside?

Full sun with lots of warm water, but the soil must not become soggy and the water has always to be fresh. When the temps drop down to 17°C or so, I would place it inside.

Thanks Pal,

How about inside, should it be in direct sun or a bright room near window is enough?

The more sun, the better, I think.

after 20 days, 100% germination rate for Sabal minor. Thanks to Lucas- @redbeard917 ...It seems they are remote germinators,  how easy they can be grown as seedlings?

Very! They volunteer readily in beds. I've only grown them from seeds once, but they are actually drought tolerant, especially for a plant that usually grows in wet areas.
