Dacrydium araucarioides

Back in 2010 I ordered some of the New Caledonia Araucariaceae seeds when rarepalmseeds had them for sale. I got 2 out of 10 Dacrydium araucarioides seeds to germinate. They have been very slow growing, still only 5-6 inches tall. But at least they are healthy. I can't wait until they are bigger to plant out.

Is anyone else growing this or get seeds to germinate?

Here they are;

Well, they certainly do look araucarioid.

None germinated for me. Cuttings have never lasted long - they seem to be sensitive to water quality. Good luck this these!

Nice rare plants.

Be very careful, good luck!

These 2 germinated then just sat there until this past summer. They finally started growing. I hope they pick up speed, I am anxious for them to get larger.
