Frankies are quite hardy to moisture and shade, all different from the armata seedlings.

I've found that to be true as well.

I came up with the idea to put my seeds Dypsis lanceolata on a cable set-top box, because from below he heats and actually from the inside the seeds a sweat :) E08Nn0e.jpg

1519234196004-755284217.thumb.jpg.c0a552The majority of mine seem fine. After cleaning they sank like pebbles into the water to soak. Just have to wait to see what happens. May just take a bit more time and patience. " Good things come to those that wait" Not giving up on them. The embryo looks fine to me. Much appreciation to Dooms Dave for the seeds. Every seed is a new experience.

Did they sink?

Even if they didn't, I'd plant them anyway. I cleaned them, but some got a bit cleaner than others.

I always give the seeds that don't sink a little extra time in the soaking water, usually I find that if they don't sink right away, when I  do a  daily water change they do. I'll sow all of them anyway, never know.

I don't make no cleaning them any way, that's part if the enjoyment. Thanks again Dave. I've learned alot reading your posts.

The most recent batch of Lancie seeds were cleaned; the previous batches were all moldy, but they still grew.

Sometimes, a bit of the old fruit still sticks, and they tend to float.

Plant anyway, and wait.

If they don't sprout, there's more.

@DoomsDave Some sink some float. I plant them anyway. I don't give up. Some day they will sprout.

Good an alla' ya!

Remember, these plants are a bit on the fragile side, compared with Chamadorea radicalis. But they're really pretty, a nice dark green, slender, nice for indoors.

Put mine uncleaned in the mulch of a potted palm and about half sprouted.

      Awhile back I posted photos of the first surviving crop of seeds from my Dypsis lanceolata. Those seeds are harvested and ready to go to new homes.
      https://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/Dypsis_lanceolata
      This is a clustering Dypsis but only sparsely so. My palm has two stems and is 8-10' tall. It is notable for its unusually long, arched fronds and wide, rippled leaflets. It is closely related to Dypsis pembana and cabadae.
      Dypsis lanceolata fresh seeds: 50 @ $10.00 for the lot
                                                         100 @ $15.00 for the lot
      Shipping = $6.00 in a padded envelope. I cannot ship seeds or plants outside the US. No shipping to HI.
      Payment via Paypal.
      PM me if you are interested

      I germinated these seedlings several years ago. They are still tiny but hanging in there. I still have dozens of them. I believe they are D. madagascariensis v mahajanga but I need confirmation from a Dypsis afficionado. I got the seeds from @NatureGirl back in 2018 or so. They are maddeningly slow growing as some Dypsis are but are surprisingly resilient. They stay outdoors in the shade year round and get no protection from the elements. I have dozens of them I am looking to sell as I don't have time and energy to keep herding them around.
      Are these D. mad v mahajanga?

      I have this golden cane palm who I keep indoors in a really bright room. It has grown incredibly fast, more than doubled in the few months I’ve had it. I repotted it perhaps 3 months ago and it looks like it could already use another upgrade! I want to encourage it to keep growing so I’m unsure if repotting it would encourage this or perhaps slow it down? Maybe it’ll focus more on growing roots or the root movement may affect its foliage growth? We’re also coming to the end of the growing season where I am as well.

      Hey guys!  Last night I separated a few small Areca palms from a larger cluster and potted them individually.  I really like it when my palms aren't super overgrown/clumped together, I keep them very trimmed back and am trying to thin out clumps so you can really appreciate the delicate individual trunks as they start to form. 
      Pics of palm before, after, and of the three smaller seedlings individually potted
      Let me know what you guys think! Cheers
