200 down, ~800 more to go if anyone else needs any. 

The good stuff about this palm:

  • A pinnate palm that can grow in 8b/9a type areas.
  • It loves overhead canopy and sheltered areas; easy to protect in marginal climates.
  • Nice looking and smelling flowers with bright colored fruit.
  • A single flower stalk has both male and female flowers (one stem can produce seed).
  • Fruit can have between 1 and 4 seeds.  (The Palmpedia page says between 1 and 3, but I did get one fruit with 4.)
  • Has a thin trunk (~6 inches) and is a clustering palm.

Another 125 leaving today, but plenty more if anyone still wants any.  Answers to a few questions:

  • Price is inclusive of shipping within the shipping area (CONUS) for the denominations in the original post.
  • Yes, I'd consider selling the currently unclaimed seeds (currently 500+) as a bulk order with a lower cost per seed.  That would require a different, more expensive shipping method.

Thanks to all have inquired!

I've recently collected several of these seeds and have not had good success germinating them in the past.  Do you have any germination tips for these?

This is actually my first rodeo with these seeds.  Perhaps some of the other members growing them have more information.  I have heard that they lose viability pretty quickly.

I'm going to try 25 from the batch I've been selling in a community pot with bottom heat.

One thing that I learned after previous attempts was the ripe color of the fruit.  I had collected fruit from a tree that had mostly yellow with some orange (and some had fallen from the tree) and assumed that the orange ones were ripe.  It turns out that they then turn red and then purple/black.  I was told that this is when they are ripe when the fruit is almost black, but not 100% sure on this.  As a test I collected different colored fruits back in Sep but no germination yet.  I'm trying baggies and community pot methods with bottom heat.  Hope you (we) get some germination but it might take awhile!  :asleep:

The fruit that I bought was reddish/purple, so I figured it was ripe.  We shall see.  I've heard of some seeds of this species taking 2 years to come up while others taking only a few weeks.  Time will tell I guess.

I’ve gotten good germination, in the past in my Mediterranean climate.  Peat/Perlite/ambient temp/shade.  They tend to sprout, with little care, but I don’t remember much more than that.  I pot them up in a one gallon pot, and set an empty one on top, to retain moisture.

Ive always had great success with arenga seeds. Some of the easiest to germinate.

My apologies for those who asked after the recent update on germination.  I'm out of seeds at this point.  Thanks to everyone that was interested!

Do you remember how long it’s been since you started germinating these seeds?

      Our Pachira aquatica tree, i.e., Malabar Chestnut, flowers and produces large pods of seeds/nuts almost year round. The species is a tropical tree native to Central and South America where it grows near swamps and wetlands. This tree is also called Money Tree or Money Plant, is frequently bonsai-ed or its juvenile stems braided as an expression of feng shui.  For those purposes, the seeds are highly desired but are usually only available from Thailand or China, from which they are very expensive, of dubious quality and subject to seizure by US Customs. The nuts produced in fleece-lined shells can be eaten raw or roasted although I haven't tried them. Seeds germinate readily if given warmth and moisture and seedlings grow quite fast. My prolific tree is now a source of these seeds within the US.
      Please see info. below:
      Pachira aquatica (Malabar Chestnut) seeds: 50 @ $15.00 per lot

      Total = $20.00

      Today I harvested a crop of over 100 seeds from my largest Gaussia maya. This pinnate palm is native to scrub land and hills of Belize, Mexico & Guatemala. It can reach 60' tall with a slender gray trunk less than a foot in diameter topped with gracefully arching leaves on short petioles. This is the cold hardiest Gaussia and has been grown in Orlando. Before the introduction of species like the invasive queen palm, G. maya was one of the most commonly used landscape pinnate palms in FL. It deserves to be widely grown again. I am selling these seeds in one lot.
      Gaussia maya - 100+ uncleaned seeds = $15.00
      Shipping = $5.00 in padded envelope.               No shipping overseas. No shipping to HI
      Total = $20.00

      So I cut open two of a bunch of Sabal minor seeds that I had to see if they were still good, they were not dried up or anything so I assumed they were good, then I cut by the embryos and I noticed that in the little eye (spot where the embryo is) there is a little gap. Is this normal?
