... are very easy to germinate and need up to 1 month to sprout.
I purchased the seeds from Tobias. I have four out of ten sprouted and in containers. They are behaving much like other Syagrus seed. I am hoping a couple more will emerge. The first four all sprouted within a month of arrival, so I am not holding my breath for the others. They are running a long tap root, so plan for a deep container in the first step. I have usually gone right to one gallon for Other Syagrus. As always, I am happy with what I got from this site.

...very easy to germinate and need up to 3 months to sprout.
Placed seeds in a 1 gallon pot with pulp removed. Buried seed approx. the width of the seed deep into the soil. Placed the pot in area where it could get full sun most of the day. 3 months later noticed the shoots had appeared. Very easy to germinate, must keep the soil moist though.

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.
