Filifera babies popping up. Seeds sown from rotten fruit beneath the afformentioned wild Nevada specimens. What a nice surprise!

Gorgeous palms!  I'm guessing (and hoping) the parents of my seedlings looked as nice!

Right? If they are from where I’m assuming, they’re even more stunning! Growing next to a desert spring, just the way they like it . These two likely are bird/coyote planted, only getting flood or ground water.

You got the seeds from some nice ones, that's for sure!

Very nice!  Seems like the desert palm seeds (like Brahea, Washingtonia) hold their viability for quite awhile.

Any advice on when to move these to the light? They’re currently in the garage, well above 90F most of the time.

I moved mine outside to the racks because I needed the additional space inside.  Most were just barely pushing their first leaf when I moved them.  They seemed to handle the move just fine.  At this point, they get about 1/2 a day of sun.

The shallow tray they were in was way too small (didn’t actually expect anything). Look at the roots on these guys! They’ve been moved to part sun in individual “pots” for the time being.

Update: Three months old. The biggest one. The fan is opening. I’m excited. Anybody know when the hair and thorns start to develop? Looks the the hair may be starting.

As far as the hair, I've seen some on seedlings with only 4 leaflets.

Wow! That's fast. That root suggests to me that this palm's speed is an evolutionary adaptation to get quickly established in order to tolerate future drought. Love the glamour photo of the parents!

      One of my Washingtonia robusta seedlings leaned sideways a bit when it was in the community pot and started to grow that way. I potted it up with the base of the small trunk pointing up. Will this seedling straighten out?

      I literally just screenshot this off of my buddy's Instagram story just now (please ignore the silly shark lol). I couldn't help but notice what looked like Washingtonias, but he is in SC near Myrtle Beach. Do Washies actually manage to get this big in Myrtle? I do see the dead trunk on the left, however...

      So my biggest W robusta seedling has been doing well, but recently it's leaf tips have been turning yellow. It's in a pearlite peat mix and gets light for at least 8 hours a day from grow lamps. Additionally it is on a heated mat with others. I water it when it gets dry, which is almost once a day. Maybe I'm overwatering it? Pot size? Should it go outside perhaps? Help is appreciated.

      Hey guys. For the past few months my Washingtonian adonidia have been growing quite happily. I'm just wondering if I should move them up to slightly larger pots now?
