@GardnerDylan6a Just putting them in a 16 oz cup with moist medium and bottom heat should do the trick in two weeks to a month.  I've done about 600 this way.

Hello thanks for the reply, what temperature  is ideal for the seed germination and how long should they be pre soaked for?

I soaked mine for 24 hours and kept them at 90F+.  If they are really fresh, you'll start seeing a few pop around the two week mark.

Ptycho elegans germinate like mad if they are fresh, kept very warm and kept moist but not soggy. Still, you have to be patient as the process may take weeks to months.

      I pulled some of the purple seeds off my Burretiokentia hapala, cleaned them and dropped them in a zip lock baggy with some damp perlite and sphagnum moss.  I'm using a little heat, wrapping the bag in foil and leaving it on top of my water heater).  I'm curious what typical sprouting time is on this species if anyone has used this technique with this species.

      I have some 5 gallon Ptychosperma elegans available (been in mostly sunny location). Foliage has some minor blemishes, but definitely a good deal. Looking to sell these for $35 each, pick up only in Newbury Park, CA 91320. No shipping. Text me if interested 805-813-3999, thank you

      Hey,
      I planted some Sabal minor and Jubaea chilensis seeds around 2 months ago. They havent germinated yet, thats why I would like to ask if I did something wrong. Is it the way I try to germinate them? Maybe the moisture in the box? Do they need light to germinate?
      So many questions
