Palm Propagation Problems
I've been checking out this forum and its advice for a while, particularly on palm seed germination. A light finally turned on and I decided to join.
I've been trying to germinate seeds from my royal palm and another (not yet identified).
I've tried various combinations of:
- Seeds in different stages of ripeness (well, at least before the squirrels get to them). If I'm lucky enough to find one on the ground with a little orange, I grab it, peal it, and if it sinks in water, I plant it.
- Soil, moss
- Sinking in water for 24 hrs (with float test)
So far, all the seeds (about 50 of them), havent' shedded so much as a root, and it's been about 4-5 weeks now.
Any advice on how to pull this off will be greatly appreciated.
