From Picked Chinese Fan Palm Seed to 14 months of Growing


Recommended Posts

In October of 2021 I picked around 10 very unripe Chinese Fan Palm Seeds from a family members home. 

I then placed all in a ziplock bag in wet paper towels. I changed the paper towels weekly until 1 sprouted, around 90 days after picking from the tree.

I then transplanted the seedling to a small pot, then transplanted to the pot seen in the pictures here.

I live in Florida 9b, my question is, from this stage how long should I wait till I plant outside in my yard?

@Chris Chance gives solid advice.  That said, I have planted them at the same size in the fall and not had any issues with them establishing.  Mine grew somewhat slow for a year while they established, then took off and started producing mature fronds.

These 2 seedlings were of the same age as yours (size of the right pot Ø 12cm, H 12cm):


And this is the seedling on the right 8 years later:


5 years from seed for me here in frozen northern Canada 🥰👍🏻
