I was just wondering what the typical germination time frame is for Copernicia Baileyana. I have not found much information online, RPS etc. I have an 8'' community pot with 6 seeds in a plastic bag at room temperature (70-85F). Would these benefit from a higher heat?
P.S. I would really appreciate pictures if anyone has them

Please help, I have three Washingtonia Robusta, I have researched online as much as I can but am seeing so much conflicting information.
I brought 2 Washingtonia Robusta or mexican fan palms, and one pot had two growing in one, so I hosed down the root ball and untangled the roots and re potted, the two I split are in smaller 36 cm pots, and one I put into a large 60 cm barrel pot. They came 100cm in height, and looked nice and healthy. as soon as I re-potted them they immediately flopped over and the fronds all closed up. the soil mix I looked up and mixed john innes no.3 and half all purpose compost, which was what recommended on a video I watched. I got a bag of miracle grow enriched compost , which I have since found out can give the roots burn due to slow realized fertilizer in the soil. the plants are looking really bad. I don't have a clue what to do, I read something that it could be transplant shock so bare with it, somethings saying to water it every day some saying to let the soil dry.
Please any advise would be really appreciated, Just want them to be health as possible.
I am in the south of the UK so the climate should be fine for them until winter when I was plant to bring them in the house.
Hope everyone is well.
I have been following the forum as a guest for quite some time now, so it's nice to finally have an account and be with you all!
I'm reaching out because I'm having a slight issue with my family's 40 yr old date palm.
It's been healthy and growing well for many years with little to no maintenance but in the last two years it is struggling to hold onto new leaves and I can't work out why. The area around it was repaved about 8 years ago but it has only been looking poorly for 2/3 years now. The new leaves look healthy initially and very quickly appear slightly burned at the edges, then it doesn't take very long for them to dry out and wilt. Really don't want to lose this guy as he is the pride and joy of the neighborhood.
Does anyone have idea, what it might be? Fungus, Bugs, Growing Conditions? I'm no expert so it may be something obvious I have missed.
Is there anything I can do? Just recently I have broken up the pavement surrounding the base of the trunk to ensure it isn't missing out on water (which it very rarely gets due to climate).
Climate: Mediterranean, Dry Subtropics. Cyprus

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Anybody have any suggestions that might save my tree? My 40ft Royal Palm (Satellite Beach, Florida) was struck today by lightning. The new shoot/spear blasted apart all over the yard and there's an exit hole(s) at the base of the tree. Other than that, the tree looks fine. Does anyone have any experience with their palms getting struck? Could my palm survive? Is there anything I can do to aid in it's chances to pull through? Fertilize? Thanks.
