Windmill Palm producing seeds

nwmstropicsApril 7, 2010

My Trachy is pushing out 5 seed pods. How long will it take before they are ready to do something with? Are they easy to germinate? Also, how do you germinate them? I've posted a couple of pics below.

You have to wait to see if its a male or female. Then you need both to make seeds. If they develope pallen that you can shake of its a male.

Yeah, you need a male and female to produce viable seeds. Lots of pollen=male, no pollen= female. Only females make seeds. Either way its nice to see them flower! Good luck!
