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?

      Shipping = $10.00   No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI

      I have a limited number of ripe seeds from my only surviving Sabal etonia. This species is native to central and north central Florida. It is a dwarf palm with an underground stem, although rarely it will form a stem up to 6' tall. My mother palm shows strong dwarf traits - it is only 3' tall and 3-4' wide although it is nearly 12 years old and has been flowering for the past 3-4 years. It usually produces a crop of 200-300 seeds, sometimes fewer. Its 2' wide leaves are less costapalmate than most other Sabals, similar to Sabal minor except they are light green instead of blue green. S. etonia has larger fruit than S. palmetto. It is coldhardy to zone 8, marginal in 7. Like all Sabals It loves heat and sun.
      See summary below
      Sabal etonia: 50 seeds @ $10.00 for the lot
      Shipping = $5.00 via First Class Mail in a padded envelope. 
      Total = $15.00
      Payment via Paypal

      Mother Palm

      I need to find a new for 50+ Coccothrinax borhidiana seedlings I germinated. They are 6-9 months old and have 1 to 3 leaves and vigorous root systems. I received them from a fellow palm lover last year. I don't have a photo of the actual mother palm but my source told me the seeds came from her palm and no other Coccothrinax spp were nearby. However, I am posting a 2017 photo of one of my C. borhidiana (not the mother).
      See summary below:
      Coccothrinax borhidiana: 50+ seedlings @ $30.00 for the lot.
      Shipping = $10.00 via Priority Mail. Sent without pots & soil, with roots wrapped in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil
      Total = $40.00
      Payment via Paypal
      No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI. PM me if you are interested

      For sale is One Lot of 40 seeds from my 3 Chamaedorea hooperiana palms. This is a clustering palm with stems that can reach 12' tall. Cham hooper is native to the state of Veracruz in Mexico where it grows in tropical rain forest at 3,000-5,000'. It is better known in CA and although you might expect it to prefer a mediterranean climate, it thrives for me in the heat and humidity of FL. I grew the parent palms (2 female, 1 male) from seeds and planted them in shade on the east side of the house. There they have grown to maturity and not given me a lick of trouble.
      See summary below
      Chamaedorea hooperiana: 40 seeds @ $8.00 for the lot.
