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.
