... are average to germinate and need up to 1 year to sprout. The seeds arrived with some germinating in the packet November 2012. Those that germinated failed to develop further, I think due to the relatively cool winter greenhouse conditions in Minnesota. The other seeds have not germinated as yet. My experience is that Aiphanes are not fast growers for me. Submitted on 10/03/2013 by John O Wild

The Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms by Robert Lee Riffle, Paul Craft, Scott Zona
Completely revised and updated Hardcover - 528 pages
11 x 8.5 inches
Our rating: Suitable for: all 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.
