Default Bismarck palm seeds

I have a couple of Bismarck seeds in which I purchased on the RealPalmTrees.com website. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to make the germinating process a little faster?

Default Use a ziplock bag for germinating seeds quicker

I have read so many different methods over the years on growing seeds, and the best one I have used has always been locking the ziplock with the seeds and a moist papaer towel and putting it underneath my fridge which stays at around 90 degrees. Within a couple of weeks the seeds typically germinate. I have never germinated bismarck palm seeds and from what I have read, they are the more harder ones to germinate.

6-8 weeks of estimation to germination on these guys but they're not as hard as people make them out to be..I guess a suggestion or 2 could be too choose a planting location that receives full sun and enough room for the Bismarckia to grow to maturity. Bismarckia palms don’t tolerate root disturbance and should never be transplanted after they are established. Water the Bismarckia seedling to the depth at which it is planted and keep the soil moist at all times. Hope your germinated Bizmarckia does well!!
