Palm seed propagation

Posted by dogbane28 4a (My Page) on

I am wondering if anyone has advice on how to propagate palm seeds?

I probably should wait until summer when it is alot warmer. I plan to use a humidity dome and heat mats but it is still cold in the room where I am going to do this.

I know most require high temperatures to germinate. Usually between 70-100 F (depending on the species).

I read somewhere that soaking the seeds in water that has been soaked in a smoke primer might help?

Smoke primers not only work for plants that need smoke treatment but may work for other recalcitrant species.

The palm that I plan to grow is Areca catechu (Betel Nut).
