Reinhardtia gracilis

Window Pane Palm

A small and dainty palm from the rain and cloud forests of S-Mexico and Central America to 1300m (4300ft). Reinhardtia has small leaves with usually only two broad leaflets per side that have distinctive 'windows' at the base. Under humid and shady conditions it is easily grown and develops quickly into an exceptional container plant or a most stunning understory palm for the subtropical or tropical garden. The seeds we can offer are very fresh and have already started germinating.

More than 80% of seed will be germinated and the first seed should be germinated within couple weeks. No need special technique ,just keep the media always moist and warm. 30C should be suitable. Beware rat or squirrel visit your pot and eat all the seed.

Ordered 10 seeds here at rps and got maybe 20, thanks! Soaked the seeds in nitrozyme for 1 day and put them in a ziplock bag with neemcoir. The bag was placed on a warm place on an aquarium. They all germinated at the same time after maybe 2 weeks. Hope they grow as good as they germinate!

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.
