... are very easy to germinate and need up to 1 month to sprout.
these germinated in 5 days and came up looking like young chives or onions. very slow to develop after that with a small white tuber forming. wider leaves produced after approx 6 months.these need strong light and very little seed raising mix over the seed. i mist rather than water and protect from rain. the seed is small and easily washed away.very happy with the results. nice blue foliage developing on them now.

... are very easy to germinate and need up to 1 month to sprout.
These seeds are very small, yet they germinated within 3 days. Seedlings are grass like with very thin leaves. I don't water Agave seed I mist it. Misting gives moisture without dislodging the seeds, plus seedlings of this species fall over easily. Growth has been very slow since germination. I sow seeds on the surface of a gritty seed raising mix and lightly cover with sieved mix just enough to hold them in place. Strong light every day.

The Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms is the definitive account of all palms that can be grown for ornamental and economic use. Palms are often underutilized as a result of their unfamiliarity—even to tropical gardeners. To help introduce these valuable plants to a new audience, the authors have exhaustively documented every genus in the palm family.
825 species are described in detail, including cold hardiness, water needs, height, and any special requirements. Generously illustrated with more than 900 photos, including photos of several palm species that have never before appeared in a general encyclopedia, The Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms is as valuable as an identification guide as it is a practical handbook. Interesting snippets of history, ethnobotany, and biology inform the text and make this a lively catalog of these remarkable plants.
