You may get rooted seedlings from Gillian. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lytocaryum-weddellianum-mini-coconut-various-amount/303024539262?hash=item468dab867e:m:mkzKLUF66Vm9VvoUJXOo49Q

Happy germinationday, N°1301! :wub: Pushing now its 29th leaf after a mild, but stormy winter:

No, that’s from 2017! :P

Here a family photo together with the two bonsai Lytos (and the empty bottle):

@KjellP Yes? The seedlings in this picture don't look good. I prefer to sow seeds. I have already ordered those from Madeira. :)

@Pal Meir Did the seeds before the spreading should be soaked in warm water?

I soaked the seeds for one day in c. 30°C warm water and then put them 1 cm deep into a pot filled with Kokohum; the temps of the substrate should be best between 25° to 30°C:

And I controlled the seeds once every day; beware of mould!

@Pal Meir My seeds are already in coconut fiber for a month. Like fresh, freshly picked from the palmtree, but they do not germinate. As I looked at the ground, 3 are a bit moldy.

@Pal Meir My seeds are in coconut fiber covered with a stringed bag. I have to ventilate them often, even for 12 hours because the surface from the very beginning, despite the strong squeezing of the water is too wet.

@Pal Meir I replanted my weakest seedling with 1/3 seramis and 2/3 pine bark and immediately started growing up.

Here's an update on my beauty.

It still hasn't lost any leaves after owning for nearly two years and grows great all year round.

It even still has two leaves (two on right of picture) that I splinted after nearly bending in two to get in my suitcase! :-)

This has really sold me on procuring on of these, about the size you have Ivorhooper, for my new porch.  Now to actually find a vendor for one this size.

      According to the palm literature Lytocaryum weddellianum grows at altitudes between 50 and 800 m and Lytocaryum insigne from 1000 to 1800 m (Noblick 2017). But those limitations seem to be not correct. Below four habitat photos showing L insigne at c. 500 m and L weddellianum at c. 900 m (and 1200 m imo):



      This palm is imo also L weddellianum, but I am not sure:

      Not a Lodoicea, but only two L weddellianum potted together, today 6 years old:

      And 2 years ago:

      And when they were still younger:

      And 4 months after birth, er, germination:

      My 10 Lytocaryum weddellianum grown up from seed in 2013 were more and more getting too tall  for my desktop, except one (N°1306c) which I had kept quite small by very brutal  root pruning. (But even the other pruned palm N°1306a is growing too tall …)
      Now I am intending to keep my 3 one year young L batavum as small bonsai palms. First, I will keep them as long as possible in their tiny Ø8xH9cm clay pots. Second, I will expose them also to direct sunlight, but watching that they don’t get burned. 
      @Jamesasb , you have mentioned (and posted a pic) one year ago that you are making one of your L weddellianum to a bonsai. Are there already visible and positive results? 
      Here the desktop-sized N°1306c:

      And here the 3 new bonsai candidates:

      This is the story of the weakest of ten Lytocaryum weddellianum seedlings.
      In 2013 all other seeds germinated between April 01 and 26, only one small seed germinated much later on May 8 after 49 days (cf. pic #1).  And this seedling N°1308 would not grow like its siblings and stayed small though it was the only single seedling which was planted since the beginning in a large Ø12xH12 cm clay pot (cf. pic #2).  (The other five singles N°1301 to N°1305 had only tiny Ø8xH9cm clay pots.) So I checked the roots and was very worried (pic #3).  The soil mix could not be the the reason because the other Lyto weddells were planted in the same mix.  So I guessed it might be that the draining hole of the pot was closed by something too tight. I placed another piece of a clay pot over the hole and repotted the palm with the same soil into the same pot.  And it became looking happier (pic #4)  and is a happy little bonsai palm until now, pushing its 18th leaf (pic #5), with very strong and healthy roots (pic #6). 
      So we can see that even an ideal soil mix may cause problems when the pot is too large or the drainage not optimal.
