How long the seeds takes to germinate?

My first one had a radical by 7 days, the second by 11 days. They are not slow.

I had to check what's happening under the surface of one that hadn't come up and I'm glad I did. The leaf shoot had embedded itself in a ridge of the root, so I freed it. It look thick an healthy minus any green but I expect it will make a full recovery.

Thanks to people detailing the toughness and resilience of these sprouts which I've benefited from.

Lift off! Meristem trajectory is nominal. Approaching max-Kew.

That's the seed that germinated second and had a smaller root when I potted it up, so I wasn't expecting it to be the first to the surface. Hope the other one hasn't got tangled up somehow.

Still growing and speeding up a bit. This one is in a shady spot, maybe the reason for slower growth, but doing well. The new leaf caught my eye.

I have the same problem with my lipstick palm. She is growing like crazy to a stunning 9ft plus. She can’t stay anymore under the shade and I have no other shade anywhere. So I had to be creative and attached a shade cloth to 2 palms and pushed it up with a long mango grabber  to keep the shade cloth  higher. It’s not perfect but she is under shade. 
You can create the same oblique so the Sabinaria is protected. See pic. Hope that helps. I have 2 Sabinaria happy in the shade, nice dark green. They need shade and lots humidity !

      I wanted to post a photo of my Sabinaria magnifica Palm that survived despite not being protected and being in an open area of my yard when the temperature dropped to 35 degrees . Its the baby palm in the bottom right of the photo.

      This Sabinaria magnifica was planted out last spring here at Leu Gardens. I planted it in one of the warmest microclimates in the Garden. It has good overhead tree canopy protection and also wind protection. So far after this winter's freeze it is showing no damage. We had a low of about 28-29F here but this location was probably about 4-5 degrees warmer. A Cyrtostachys elegans x renda is growing next to it and looks good too.
