Burretiokentia hapala seed germination

Recommended Posts

Tracy

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 struck some a few years ago, no baggy , no heat, just in a pot outside.

So I imagine yours should be fine.

How long did it take for them to germinate?

Dave, I won't guess because it was over 8 years ago, I cant remember, but it didn't seem long at the time as I recall. 

One was variegated but it grew out of that, I have since given them all away.

Thanks for the rapid response 

Most of the New Caledonians take a month or two 

BUT candor appreciated!

      I have two seeding Sabal minors on the edge of my Garden Lot. I grew them from seeds sent to me by a PTer who collected them about 10 years ago from a Sabal in Savannah, GA. He thought they might be a dwarfed variety of Sabal minor but I am not sure of that. Each palm is about 4' wide by 4' tall and is seeding. Is there any interest in these seeds from US PTers? I plan to send them uncleaned. Let me know soon as I plan to cut/compost them if no one wants them.

      Hi 
      I recently bought a Parajubaea but the seller didn't know the species. He sent me a picture of the seeds. So can somebody tell what it is or are the seeds more or less the same.  I lean to P. cocoides but I'm far from an expert.
      Thanks
      Tom

      A week ago I went back to the palm park near the former railroad museum in downtown Fort Myers. The seeds I was hoping to harvest were still green but to my amazement I found ripe seeds on a plaque Coccothrinax crinita I have been following for years. In the past someone had always stripped then palm of all its seeds and indeed someone had snatched the low hanging fruit this time but my husband noticed an infructescence of purple seeds high up in the crown. He was able to cut it down with his long loppers. The cleaned seeds are smaller than the ones I found at NBG but have the same "lumpy" appearance. I also have several 100s of seeds rather than just 100 so more to pass around.

      I have ~56 seeds from a Syagrus stenopetala I found in Naples Botanical Garden this past Sunday. This palm is very rare in cultivation and not a lot is known about it. I am attaching a couple of links about itincluding one from Palmpedia. The photo on the far right in that link is the mother palm of these seeds. Seeds are quite large: nearly 2" long and 1" wide. I have cleaned and dried them, a very labor intensive chore involving a bucket, a power drill and a brush attachment on a long shank, then pulling off fibers by hand.
