I soaked them for 3 days (May 3-5) and placed in a 4:1 mixture of perlite and peat moss. 28 seeds split into 5 pots, 1 indoors (around 78F) and 4 outdoors (around 90F day - 75F night). Was expecting to wait 6 months to a year for germination. Surprisingly, the first to sprout was in the indoor pot! Since then I've moved all 5 into the garage (80's-90'sF) and I look forward to more action!
A quick question, when is a good time to transplant it into its own pot with more nutritious soil?
How does one tell 5 gallon jubaea from beccariophoenix alfredii? I have inadvertently commingled some, and while there are noticeable differences when these palms get larger (such as yellow petioles for the beccariophoenix alfredii, and the jubaea fronds and leaflets are stiffer), for smaller plants I'm having difficulty telling them apart. Does anyone have some easy keys for differentiating them?
I'm looking all over the internet and I can't find any Parajubaea seeds, preferably Torallyi.
Anyone can help? I really want to grow it but no one seems to be selling the seed.

Hello, I'm planning a trip to Chile this November and am interested in seeing Juania australis and/or Jubaea chilensis in habitat. On Juania I haven't been able to find out if the remaining wild specimens are still visible by regular visitors to Robinson Crusoe, and if so, exactly where (though there don't seem to be many hiking options to begin with). For Jubaea, it seems Parque Nacional La Campana is the best spot, at least as far as large protected areas, but I wanted to make sure that there aren't any better but more obscure/still accessible locations.
I just bought these two beautiful Parajubaeas. I’m so excited to finally get Parajubaea. Not sure which species they are. I suspect that the one in the ground is torallyi due to rusty colour under the pinnae.
Any thoughts will be welcomed.
Now I have to make a plan to get them to my house. I’m in Bloemfontein, Free State and the palms are in Gauteng Province.
