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.

      I've been wanting to go out and take photos since New Years but have been recovering from major surgery. I'm up and around for now and have decided to do a photo layout of some of the palm seedlings I've grown from seeds over the past couple years. The list is not comprehensive and includes a Dypsis and Cham turckheimii I bought rather than germinated. Most everybody has seen photos of mature palms but few of us have seen them as small seedlings or juveniles.
      1. Ptychosperma sp 'Cartegna'

      2. Dypsis ifanadianae w/heel

      3. Drymophloeous oliviformis

      4. Ptychosperma microcarpum

      5. Chamaedorea alternans

      6. Ptychosperma unk sp Australia

      7. Chamaedorea tuerckheimii

      8. Cyphophoenix elegans

      9. Howea forsteriana

      10. Licuala fordiana

      11. Licuala lauterbachii

      12. Pinanga maculata

      13. Hydriastele dransfieldii

      14. Carpoxylon macrospermum

      15. Chamaedorea geoniformis

      16. Brassiophoenix schumannii

      17. Areca catechu dwarf x Areca macrocalyx

      18. Chamaedorea arenbergiana variegated

      Hi there,
      I thought i would post an update of my Dypsis decipiens nearly 10-years after planting it out in possibly the coldest climate i have seen this Palm growing in.
      Shes a slow grower but it is now getting faster the bigger it gets. Here is the pic when planted out and how it is now.

      This palm just keeps getting more and more beautiful. Just dropped a leaf sheath a few days ago and couldn’t help but snap a few photos.

      Region or state:Madagascar Alternative names:Ankaizin de coco The kernel is about the size of a peanut. It contains a lot of coconut oil, the aroma of coconut is five times that of ordinary coconut. It has a sweet aftertaste, which can be called the king of coconuts. The locals in Madagascar collect the nuts and smash them to take out the kernels, which can be eaten directly or after baking. They will preserve the extra kernels by salting them, which can be used as a condiment in cooking.

      I fell in love with this palm and hope to grow it one day. I think it is a stunner. I hope it will be more widely grown one day.  It has been discovered for quite a while so I'm surprised it isn't more widely grown any ideas why? Does no one like it or something.
      i find it far more attractive than D. scandens because this appears to have much wider leaflets, what do you think
      If anyone grows it, would you tell your story?
      (or if you have any seeds...?)
