Sabal palmetto / sabal mexicana seedling container?

Recommended Posts

CTho

I’ve germinated a handful of seeds I believe are sabal palmetto (they’re small, and I collected them from under a local tree), but I was wondering about containers for the next step.  Do sabals need particularly deep containers?  Wide?  I have some mini treepots (9” and 14”) I can use if necessary, although I have way more seeds than treepots.  Thanks!

I have a ton of seedlings in little red Solo cups and some in the "venti" Starbucks cups.  The do seem to have "slow pot syndrome" though, regardless of pot size.  Welcome to PalmTalk!

I germinate my palm seeds in clear Solo cups. I like using the clear ones because I can watch the roots grow.

If the seeds were more like these at the bottom of the photo, they're likely S. palmetto or if the size of these at the top, S. Mexicana.  Welcome to the forum!

Awesome, thanks!  Based on that photo, they’re sabal palmetto.
