Archontophoenix myolensis

Myola Palm

A tall, slender, elegant palm, somewhat reminiscent of A. cunninghamiana, with a smooth trunk that can reach about 20 m (65 ft.) in height and a long, blue-green crownshaft that holds a spreading crown of elegantly arching leaves. It is native to northeastern Queensland where it grows only in a couple of locations of gallery forest on volcanic soil between 350 and 400 m (1100 and 1300 ft.) elevation near Myola on the Atherton Tableland.

... are average to germinate and need up to 3 months to sprout.
I see three shoot tips coming out, probably more will appear, planted in November 2012. The greenhouse could get quite cool (50's Deg F) in the dead of winter and that could have slowed things down.

Soaked the seeds for 1 day with nytrozyme an put the seeds in a ziplock bag with neemcoir. The bag was put on a warm place above an aquarium. Within a few weeks the seeds started to sprout.

... are very easy to germinate and need up to 1 month to sprout.
Ordered 30 seeds, I got around 35. 30 came up within 3-4 weeks all growing strongly. I've just placed them out into my hothouse for growing on. Should be no problems with this easy to grow species. Nothing hard about germinating this rare Archontophoenix.

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.
