The form of this Butia is really nice, almost looks like it has some Jubaea in the mix, hopefully your seeds will come true to form.

I would have to agree,  those dont look like normal Butia Odorata. Maybe JxB not sure how early they seed tho

It looks a lot like my Butia with similar color, just a little further along.  Lots of variation in the species.

 That is also a really cool Butia. The problem is when they are small and cheap you don't always show their true form, by the time they do they get pricey..

Gotcha, on Glade just two blocks away you will find a highly neglected 20 year plus Butia. pre 1999.

I've seen it. That one is impressive still.

Good luck germinating these! I collected around 20 back in June and July and I haven’t had any germination yet with the peat/perlite baggy method with bottom heat. They need a lot of patience and I have heard of just 0 success at all. I’ve seen stratification popped around with some cold hardy palms and this might benefit from it.

I've had best results germinating Butia seeds that I stratified in my refrigerator for a few weeks before sowing.  Easier still is finding already germinated seeds in the old leaf boots of the parent tree.  It's amazing how many of the taller Butias have volunteer seedlings growing in their old leaf boots.

I have had miserable results with the baggie method when it comes to Butia. Community pots with potting soil in the backyard has worked for me very well here in Austin.

I'd have to agree with you - I don't think I've ever germinated one in a baggie.

I went from 2 consecutive years of nothing germinating, then finally 19 days.  For me was a tip from a member to remove the the embryo from the "walnut shell like outter covering".  I might have used pliers, channel lock pliers to make the shell crack, then pick at it without hurting the embryo.

Now I remember, large bench vise.  Set the seed in the recess where the screw holding the jaws on, cover with towel/rag and safety glasses...

Yes, the last time I germinated Butia seed was using this method.  There are often multiple embryos in each seed so it's possible to get multiple plants from a single seed.

      Tooty fruity fallin' in my garden.  Dypsis onilahensis hybrid and last photo of a Dypsis heteromorpha.  I have no idea if any of these are viable seeds.  What is fruiting in your garden right now?

      Does anyone know what these are? They were found washed up on the beach. There are 2 fruits and one with the fruit removed, revealing the seed. The fruit was sticky and almost web-like.

      Does anyone know of any good fruiting banana varieties? I am wanting to start some banana seeds in the fall and grow them indoors to a nice size and then plant them outdoors the next Spring with the hopes that they will get big enough to produce some bananas later in the summer.

      Hi, does anyone have seeds or seedlings of Aravaipa avocado? I cant seem to find it anywhere for sale online.
      I am located in EU (Croatia) where summers are really hot and winters get quite cold (depends on year). 
      That is why I am searching cold hardy avocado. Thanks for your time

      I just got this Papaya from a local Publix, and am wondering if anyone knows what variety it is. I am wondering this because if there are seeds inside, I may try to grow them. Does anyone know when the best time to open a papaya is?
