@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.

      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.

      Recently acquired some A. crispa seeds and cracked the outer shell (I’ve heard it helps shave lots of time off germination). Does anyone have success with any specific methods or know how the endocarps themselves like to be treated? Any advice  would be much appreciated!

      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, will they germinate?
