Thanks for sharing and sorry to hear they didn't make it. What a beautiful palm. Did you have a (pure) Jubaea and did it survive? Was there any protection involved?

Oh no, So sorry. That palm was literally the reason I ordered 2 of them! It was gorgeous.

Wow! That’s too bad! I hope you find another one. We sure don’t have any up here :(

so the pure jubaea survived?

Patrix on his last list has/had Jubaea x yatay, Jubaea x purpuracens and Jubaea x microcarpa.

Nothing listed for Yatay x Jubaea though ....

I just bought two Yatay x Jubaea from him last week. Pretty sure they’re still on the list.

His list is just his liner list and there was no Yatay x Jubaea on that list, so he possibly  doesn't have them listed and has them in a larger size.

He said there was no jub x yatay available, but then I asked again a couple weeks later. (Cuz I’m persistent lol) and like Magic they appeared! And in 3x9” slightly bigger and hopefully past it’s “finicky” stage.  I’m sure he has quite the operation going and hard to keep inventory of everything.

This year I collected from a Jubaea that has double and triple endosperm within each shell. I cracked some of them and I am starting to see some roots appear. It took one month on a heat pad that runs 85F ( thanks FallenMunk) in the daytime and then it cools to 65F ,room temperature, at night.  I have treated them with hydrogen peroxide a couple times.

Unfortunately mine are all potted up and a little too big to take out and ship bareroot. 

@ShadyDanif you're still open to part with any of yours I'd love to give them a good home on the gulf islands - I could buy a couple off of you next time I pass through Nanoose Bay (probably April).

@bruce Steele do you apply straight hydrogen peroxide to them or dilute it?  I have mold issues with lots of seeds and am trying to get this figured out.

I also end up with mould issues with seeds, especially with Chilensis, but also sometimes with TFs and washy seeds I using the baggie method. I would love to find a solution.

Jesse,  I am not sure the peroxide is the right thing to do but when I saw some mold I treated that seed with 3% peroxide. The germination I got was fast but the mold problems were mostly after those first few germinated and nothing has germinated since. 
I only cracked a few seeds and I have about a hundred with their shells still waiting to start their roots. I got impatient and cracked one to see if it was still viable and it was. Here is a picture. I did not treat the Jubaea in their shells. 
I have read that fungicides impede germination so I am not sure how to deal with mold. Has anyone tried using a black light  ( UV )  to control mold ?

Jesse,   As soon as I saw germination I took the germinated seed and potted them.  I did not cover the seeds with plastic or try to increase moisture in the potted seed. They are doing well and mold issues subsided .

You read online that Jubaea don't like humidity but I'm a slow learner.  I had a couple seedlings in my growbox, including a Jub x yatay from Patrick, and they all suffered brown frond tips.  So I would definitely not do anything to increase the humidity for them.  Not covering with plastic is probably the right call.

Jesse, “ I am not sure the peroxide is the right thing to do. “

Well I got several more seeds that germinated today. About seven weeks on the heat pad . These are cracked Jubaea seeds that had been treated with 3% peroxide once or twice if they showed any mold . If they get too moldy I chuck them but if they just show a spot of mold I rinse them in peroxide. 
Starting with a potting mix that is sterilized is also a good idea. 
When I do this again next year I will use peroxide when I need to.  
Today when I potted the newly germinated seeds I used a q-tip to spot apply some copper fungicide liquid. Some of the seed was still nice and never did show mold but I kept all these seeds under moist enough conditions that the baggies showed condensation. I did leave the baggies partially open the whole time and added water if things started drying out.

Stop using the baggie method.  They need to breathe.

For anybody germinating Jubaea, do not bury them.  I just lightly set them of top of very loose soil.  No mold or rot.

I did the same. Almost every seed germinated and no heat required.

Who'da thunk? :bemused: Cool. If I ever try them again, I'll know what to do. Thanks for that tip @Fallen Munk & @Chester B

Oh no that are really bad news! 

I haven't been on the forum for quit a while and just wanted to look for updated pictures of the larger yatay x jubaeas that are around.  So sad. 

Here is mine. The pictures were taken on different days as you can see.

Looks like it’s still fattening up. How wide is the trunk would you estimate? I’m curious what these will look like once they start to go vertical.

Me too I can't wait to see it growing upwards. The stem is 14 inches wide and the palm has an over all hight of seven feet.

I have an update. I planted about 2 of my crates full of these late fall (30 Jubaeas). Over the winter i had minimal space and had to put some plants on top of this container... I noticed a few weeks ago i had maybe 5-10 more that sprouted... I thought... I'll get to it when it warms

And then we passed the last frost and the weather forecast turned spring. i started moving plants around and bam.

All of them I think

After years of also trying to sprout  Jubaea Chilensis with limited success , I began to use the following germination method -

After soaking the seeds for three days, I placed them in a clear plastic food container , containing damp sphagnum moss. Then it was placed on a regulated seed heating mat. About a month later, I saw my first sprouts :

But even with this method, my germination was not 100 percent, actually, it was quite erratic , and that may also have to do with the quality of my the Jubaea seed sources.

I agree with what an earlier poster said, the more fresher the seeds, the better the germination.

Maybe twenty years ago someone thought” this will make a nice street planting”.  I haven’t ever seen one planted this way but it is nice to see one in Lompoc. It is just starting to go up at around 5ft. of trunk.

      This is first inflow for my female. The male has been producing flowers for a few years now. I am not sure when to harvest the seeds though. These are holding nicely but have been green forever.  Here is mama, daddy, and the babies. Has anyone produced viable seed in So-Cal.?

      The Hawaii Island Palm Society and Floribunda Palms & Exotics put on their first ever Palm Master Class - and it was pretty mind blowing.  The class size was restricted so there were two sessions of a little less than 30 people each.  We met at the Hawaiian Acres Community Association and HIPS shuttled people to Floribunda with a rented a shuttle bus and a member's minivan.

      I've grown both Howea species for a while but never tried collecting any of the seeds to germinate them.  Since the Howea forsteriana are pretty commonly available where I live, the only one of interest might be the Howea belmoreana seeds.  My belmoreana is holding several inflorescence and one of the oldest has some large green seeds.  Any thoughts on timeline?  I recall someone saying that the Lord Howe Island palms seeds in general take a long time to mature on the plant, but maybe I was confused and that was germination time?

      This post is simply a suggestion for the site.  I am an amateur (home grower) that monitors the for sale/trade category, and one of the things I find annoying is that someone selling a palm will specify local pickup only.  Of course, that's quite reasonable from their perspective, but not really an option for me unless that person is located in northern california (unfortunately for me, 99.8% of these posts are in any one of a number of southern california communities, any one of a number of florida communities or texas) - as a practical matter, these communities are not accessible to each other as well - the problem then gets exacerbated when a grower (typically commercial grower) uses the forum as a product list with one entry for each type of their 47 palm species for sale (i.e., all for local pickup).  The effect from my perspective when there are a sufficient number of these posts is that it converts the category into a regional topic only, with subject matter unavailable to me (and others).  My suggestion is simply that under the topic for sale/trade that there be separated categories for local pickup only (perhaps for tags by region) and for sale via mail.
