Got green ones, but they never seem to ripen. Very strange, a mystery to me.

Wow what an awesome palm you have! Too bad about the seeds though...I wonder why that is?

I wish I knew. Seeds look good on inside, easy to see embryo, but alas, forever green? Maybe someday they will turn purple.

My largest bottle palm has been flowering for years but the seeds abort before ripening. I now cut off all inflorescenses before they open so the palm doesn't waste energy on them. I also believe seeds take at least 2 years to ripen (assuming they don't abort first).

My spindle palms seed like crazy if I let them. But no one was ever interested in spindle seeds so I cut off those inflorescenses too now.

Ah, that's interesting Meg. My bottle has been fruiting for at least 10 yrs or more- BUT- the fruit was always Hollow. Just an empty green shell. Talk about weird. The last two years, it has set real fruit. But they never ripen. If you say they take 2 yrs, I will keep these on (last year I got tired of waiting and cut them off) and wait and see what happens. And yes, my Spindle fruits constantly, I almost was beginning to believe that my Spindle actually pollinated my bottle bcuz it's only about 15 ft away and I've never had pollinated bottle seeds before. I also thought maybe the stress of two hurricanes (Matthew, then Irma) in a two yrs made it produce. Who knows?

      Coccothrinax scoparia is native to hills in Hispaniola - Haiti & Dominican Republic - where it grows to 36' tall in calcareous soil. Its leaves are a deep, dark green on top, glistening silver beneath. Although most Coccothrinax spp have yellow or gold hastulas, the hastula of scoparia leaves is green. I grew my mother from seeds I obtained over 10 years ago. It is now one of the tallest Coccothrinax in my Caribbean Garden and one of the best looking and fastest growing I have. It is totally hardy in zone 10a and maybe in microclimates of 9b. It is not fussy about soil, is drought tolerant once established but grows faster with regular water. See summary below:
      Coccothrinax scoparia seeds: 50 @ $10.00 for the lot        100 @ $15.00 for the lot
      Shipping: $5.00 in padded envelope          No shipping overseas. No shipping to HI
      Payment via Paypal

      I have a pair of Cycas thouarsii which I pollinated with pollen from some of my male Cycas thouarsii back in late 2018.  I am curious how long it takes for the seeds to mature and if they should fall off the plant when they are "ripe".  The photos below are just about 15 months apart with the early photos taken of the plants and seeds in November 2018 and the other shots current from February 2020.  I know it is easy to determine when to harvest seeds from Encephalartos as the cones starts to fall apart.  What is the best indication for Cycas thouarsii and any input on how long that takes?  I assume there also could be a little variation in how long it takes based on climate (faster in habitat and slower in my cooler climate).

      Question about Bismarkia seeds.
      I recently bought 200 fresh fruits. I removed the fruit and scrubbed the seeds. 190 were fine and sunk in bucket of water. The question I have 10 seeds have odd nodules on them... is this bugs? Just seed secreting? should i bin them? Any help is appreciated.

      I have around 50 Eucalyptus dalrympleana seeds that I had in the fridge cold stratifying for at least eight weeks now (maybe longer, I forgot exactly) in a damp paper towel. The seeds are super tiny. I was going to germinate these in a little closed container just on top of some moist soil. I heard they can germinate fine at tempatures around 65°F. Does anyone have any advice about germating these? I never germinated Eucalyptus seeds before.
