... are very easy to germinate and need up to 1 month to sprout.
I ordered these beautiful pearl white colored seeds from rarepalmseeds and planted them in a rich peat mix after soaking them for two days. Within one month I had 5 of ten seeds germinating. They are in the greenhouse, I spray them with the hose each morning and they´re doing great. A month and a half later, I have the first leaves forming. These palms will be a wonderful addition to the understory tropical garden I have on the Pacific coast of Guatemala.

... are easy to germinate and need up to 1 month to sprout.
Recd 10 seeds and soaked them for 3 days with daily water change. They were then put into a clear plastic box with a commercial seed mix. The temp during this period was between 80+ to 90+F. They germinated within 30 days. Now 3 months later, they have a 2nd bifid leaf and are growing very well. In total, I had 8 healthy seedlings.

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.
