Great work with those seeds! 8 days... Congrats! Medemia argun, I've thinking about it. A great palm for my dry Mediterranean climate.

Thank you.  Used a bag with a lot of bottom heat for Medemia (got 10 more in the germination station) and a Solo cup with 2 inches of medium between the seeds and the heat mat for the Neoveitchia.  The Neoveitchia are being taken care of for @palmsOrl.  He ordered them originally. 

I have 2 Medemia argun in the ground outside.  Sometimes they give growers fits, but thus far haven't been too particular after they got in their planting holes.  Hoping to add these to the ground eventually.

I could handle doing that.  Those racks are now full of Ptychosperma elegans, Wodyetia bifurcata, and Delonix regia sprouts.

A bunch of the other Coccothrinax species have sprouted, but I haven't had time to re-pot them just yet.  Thank you for providing the seeds!  I appreciate it.

Looks like you have a lot of success in germinating palm seeds. Congrats.

One of the measures of whether a palm is happy in its location is if it can grow to maturity, flower and set fruit.  The local specimens of Pseudophoenix sargentii are now confirmed to do all of the above and produce viable offspring.  This seed sprouted in a month after being "shelled" and came from a fruit in transition from green to red:

Thank you, Eckhard!  I tend to experiment with different methods to see which ones produce the quickest and most complete germination.  So far, the biggest factor seems to be bottom heat.

@waykoolplantz Beautiful palms!  If you ever get more seed I'd be interested.

@kinzyjr great thread, thanks for sharing!  I have tons of seeds in various stages of germination, often from ones collected around town as well.  Grabbed a few from my recent trip to Minneapolis as well!

      I’m planting 3 silver bismarcks from seed. Also thinking of getting a W. Robusta. Is it possible to cross-breed these palms? if so, i’d love to see names you can come up with for this.

      Trying to grow a triple trunked robusta trip and wondering if anyone has any tips or advice. I’ve germinated 3 seeds and placed them close together in a pot, are they too close together?

      Sabal minor are so underrated. Everyone that can grow them should. Everyone regularly on the cold hardy section should have as many as possible. Being native to so many different states and areas there’s so much diversity in just this one Sabal species. I love growing them, but I also love seeing them. Let’s see some pics!!!

      Pictures of Sabal minor growing in habitat at Honey Creek State Natural Area, Texas (approximate GPS coordinates: 29.859131138720375, -98.48455621328327).  These were taken on January 29, 2022.  There are some other specimens growing along the river at the adjacent Guadalupe River State Park; however, they are not as prevalent, or grow as large there.  These Sabal minor were observed growing in three distinct environments: 1. Along the creek side and close to water; 2. Along and on top of the rocky hillside/cliffs; and 3. Out in the open in the Live Oak savanna.

      Pretty standard stuff but the whole lot cost me $35 including shipping. I figure there’s about 100 Sabal minor seedlings. I just couldn’t pass it up even though I have no need for them. I’m planning on doing some guerilla planting and a mass planting in my own yard.
