Parajubaea Torallyi Germination

Recommended Posts

Dimovi

I just got these Mountain Coconuts to plant, but they seem a bit too green. Would they be able to germinate? I read it is pretty hard to germinate those anyway.  Should I remove the mesocarp (the green husk)?

I was planning on letting them dry for a few weeks, then a few weeks in the fridge, then soak them for a few days, then plant them halfway burried in topsoil/peat moss mix and leave them outside to experience daily temperature variation.

Does enyone have experience germinating Parajubaea Torallyi?

I'm not sure yet. I kept the seeds in dry cool dry place for a few months then just a few weeks ago I put them in some coco coir. Nothing has germinating yet, but it looks like I am successfully starting to grow mold. Of the 25 seeds, only 8 looked somewhat mature. Of them 3 were kind of iffy.

Have you germinated those before?

It is so hard to find seeds and just as hard to germinate them I hear.

Give them a fungicide bath then put them back in with a little more water and seal the tub tight. I keep mine in the tool shed where it gets real hot in the summer. That gets a lot of my seeds going. You might have to wait till it warms up though.

They can take 3 years or more to germinate. They certainly aren’t a species in a hurry to germinate.

      Recently acquired some A. crispa seeds and cracked the outer shell (I’ve heard it helps shave lots of time off germination). Does anyone have success with any specific methods or know how the endocarps themselves like to be treated? Any advice  would be much appreciated!

      Hello I was wondering if people could share how they germinate W. Filifera and Robusta seeds, I am wondering what the ideal temperature for germination is, as I have my Filifera seeds in a pot at room temperature with the soil at around 67 F, will they germinate?

      New to seed germination indoors as I've previously just bought potted palms. I've discovered with a couple species that potted purchased palms that don't do well indoors....and die, do much better if grown from seed.
      I'm using baggie method and heat mats and trays with pretty good luck.
      My question is, when is the best time to plant them up and also to remove  from any bottom heat?  I don't want to "cook" the new seedlings. 
      Are heat mats only supposed to be  used to get seed to "pop"?
