Washingtonia Filifera Germination

Recommended Posts

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, 2CEF1300-1611-467B-9035-2E6D35ECE99B.thumb.jpeg.049ad7042ceeff7f4523c6032c605930.jpegwill they germinate?

You're going to want a minimum of 72F, but you should probably try for 80 or above.

Hopefully someone else knows the exact temperature range.

They’ll germinate, it just may take longer. There’s no big secret with Washingtonia seeds. They’re prolific germinators. I’ve germinated them in a variety of ways. I soak mine for a minimum of 5 days, changing the water every so often. After 7 or 8 days they may even start germinating in the water. I always get a high percentage of success. I find soaking them for a long time speeds up the process.

      Have a few Washingtonia robusta/filibusta started from seed and currently in 5 gallon pots. All of them were potted straight up or very nearly so. They now all lean a little or a lot to the south (towards the sun.)
      None of my other palms seem to be doing this. Is this normal? Should I try to fix it by turning the pots or will it matter when they go in the ground later this year? Probably not enough time to make much of a difference is what I think.
      When they go in the ground I'm guessing it is best to try to get them 'straight' again. Are they small enough to where it does not matter? They will be about 24" tall, smallish compared to big box store palms because they have been in the full AZ sun from Day One with no shade...

      Hello I have some sun dried Queen palm seeds with what looks like the seed pulp still attached and I was wondering if anyone knows what my next step should be to germinate them.
