Queen palm germination

Recommended Posts


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.

In my yard you just watch them drop from the Queen palms and in a couple months there’s a crop of Queen “weeds” everywhere. 

But seriously, if you want to germinate Queen palm seeds, find fresh ones, not sun dried ones, peal off pulp and place in any decent potting mix and keep moist and as warm as possible. If you cover the container with clear plastic wrap and place in the sun outdoors, thesoil wi heat up nicely. Just keep it wet.

      I live in N Florida in between Lake City, Fl and Jacksonville, Fl. I planted this Royal behind my red shed last summer. It took some leaf damage but had since put out a new spear this spring. I clipped the fronds and moved it to a sunny spot. The root ball has grown about 3x the size and I plan on moving it close to the south side facing part of my house to help protect it more. I mulched  the base for winter and threw a blanket over it a couple of times. I travel for work so most of the time these palms are not protected.  The only spear pull I had were the queens but they are all nicely recovering and everything is very thirsty waiting for summer rains.

      Repotted my never-did-split-it-up $10 P. Roebelleini.
      Split up my Sideshow Bob C. Elegans - if anyone was curious, there were 40 plants in a 7" pot, not counting the ones I've chucked into the trash can before now. Also found some seeds that never popped, and what looked like glitter in the soil. Anyway, I salvaged the ones that had long roots - one of them was really impressive, he got to stay in the same pot on his own.  Put a couple multiples into 8" pots and put a few into 2" pots just for giggles and grins. 
      And - good Lord my Monstera was super root bound. I think there was 1/2" of soil in there. 
      Also sprinkled some Jobes organic palm food on my Washy and my 2 Rivularis so my patio smells nice and poopy.

      Hey everyone!! I recently bought a queen palm and noticed that it has a small trunk on it, is this it’s permanent size or it is going to be bigger?
      This is also happening to my bottle palm.
