Thanks for the seeds, Dave!

Mine have been in spaghnum moss in a baggie laying on a radiator for about a 1 1/2 months now. Many of mine have developed these little yellow/white growths on them. This isn’t the best picture as this one has only one “dot”. Many are covered in them. I’m not sure if it’s a fungus or what. Any ideas? Can they be saved? D59A0B18-9E2F-4D70-AD02-6CF91A8E7388.thu

That seed in the picture is germinating. Is that sphagnum moss? It seems a very dark colour and also very wet.

If the seeds are covered in white dots as you say, then I suspect this is fungus probably due to too much moisture.

It might be worth taking the seeds out of there and putting them is some medium that's a bit drier to prevent fungal rot on the whole batch.

Thanks David York. I think the picture made it look more wet than it really is, but I took your advice and added in dry soil to bring the overall moisture down. 

Part of me hopes that seed is germinating, but I threw out a bunch that looked just like that one! I’m still new at growing from seed, but they didn’t look like germinating seeds that I was familiar with (mostly Sabal and Washingtonia). I’ll refrain from throwing any more out for now.

We learn from our mistakes, but just remember that many palm seeds can take a few months to germinate and if they are kept too wet, they usually rot. If using moss, squeeze out as much moisture as you can, then sow in a bag or sealed container.

Never give up. Some of mine germinated 1 year after seeds were planted.

So some of the plants from some time ago are now starting to make their first divided leaves. Time for some Amsterdam microclimate experimenting...

Hello Kai,

these are already big :rolleyes:, mine are just little seedlings but maybe because they have been kept inside with low light and cool temperatures.

The second bunch of seeds started to germinate... Many more little C. radicalis to come :yay:.

Thanks Dave for sending....

They're well along!

Keep the kitties and doggies away  (they'll think they're grass) and they'll grow apace.

The cats won't let themselves be controlled so I'll just have to hope for the best. My two cats are old lazy farts though and sleep 99% of the time; waaaay too busy for chewing up palms to get their hairballs going.

Good Day Dave, Seems you are always great on surprising. There was a packet of seeds waiting for me at the Post Office the other day. Picked them up and brought them home. Into the warm water they went, all sank which is good. Thanks again, may your days be sunny and bright. ZenMan 1

Hi Dave,

first seedlings of the second batch. It's crazy, have sown two batches the same day at identical conditions. One as on the picture, the other nothing :hmm:

Thanks again for the seeds, Dave! Once I stopped throwing out the germinating seeds from fears of fungus, they’ve taken off!

Hi Subwoofer,

the first batch was seperated when the plants where 10cm high. You need to take care for the roots but shoudn't be a problem. Mine will keep in place a little longer. Have some more to be seperated.

Dave,

Chamaedorea radicalis seeds are growing very well.

Have you a picture from the mother ?

Hello dave! The seeds you had previously sent me did beautiful with practically 100% germ rate and were already a foot tall in a year! :blink: But do you still have more to give? I hate to ask for seconds but i lost all my palms and plants when my apartment recently burned down.

Here's an update on some of the seeds you sent to Ohio, most of them germinated but I lost a lot of them to rot from soil that was too wet. The ones that I repotted are doing well now though. Thanks again!

There's more if you want. Send a PM.

They're as fertile as way-oversexed bunny rabbits.

I had the same problem, it's because they get too much water at once i think. Now i spray them a couple of times a day untill the soil is moist, then i let them dry out. But when dry they stop growing, so they need water. Also soil must be very well draining.

Give 'em a good drink, let 'em dry a bit. Don't keep them swampy or they'll rot. They're dry-land plants "at heart" as it were.

Send address again, and I'll send more.

Glad you're okay, the palms can be very easily replaced.

Here are some Chamaedorea radicalis seedlings. I put the seeds in the pots around April1st of this year and placed the pots on my patio. Most of the seeds germinated and it took about 45 to 90 days. Each pot contains a few of the seedlings as I intend on planting them in clumps of a few each, but not for a couple of years when they are larger. Many thanks to DoomsDave.

I expect that that Chamaedorea radicalis will become much more popular Miami along with Sabals in the 2020s as the next sunspot minimum sets in.

      DoomsDave sent me some seeds and im germinting(or attempting to) Chamadorea radicalis in my bedroom. Soaked the seeds for a few days and planted not long ago. Now its watering and waiting lol!
      House is low 70s so might be slow going, might invest in a warming pad.

      Greetings Palmers!

      I'm helping my significant other move back to the baked frozen tundra, and so I will be in Florida next week.

      I'll have some free time here and there (I think). Is there anything going on in the Ft. Lauderdale area on or around the weekend of the 21-22nd?

      Obviously I'll be filling my pockets with every seed, nut and pod I can get my hands on. Are there any palm-centric things I should make sure to see before I drive back to corn country?

      Cheers!

      -Erik
