Default King Palm Seeds - Help?

Anyone have any germinating suggestions specific to King Palm?

I've bought the seeds from Real Palm, and am following the generic directions. What kind of time frame should it take to begin sprouting? Instructions say to check twice a week. Ok, for how many weeks? Just looking for an general idea.

Put a couple of seeds in small pots inside a large (gallon size) baggie to keep moist. On my glassed-in back porch in Georgia, so temp ranges from 75 to 90 or 95 F this time of year.

Tks, Beachcomber

Default Palm Seed Germination

Ok so lets get you started on germinating some palm seeds. To start off you need to soak the seeds for 24-48 hours. Then buy or use a sterile medium like perlite, peat moss, paper towels as a soil substitute. This also ensures that no bacteria will grow on the seeds. You always want to check on the seeds a few times a week to make sure there is no fungus or little creatures that popped out of no where. Place seeds in a ziploc container. Wet the medium and close the lid. Label the container with the date and type of seeds.

Get a desk lamp and place it 12-14 inches away from the container. Make sure it doesnt get too hot in there. This is a great way to hurry up the process since the light can be on 24 hours out of the day.

You should get germination with in a few weeks. Once they have germinated wait another week until the root is healthy and strong, then place in a seperate small container with some more steril medium, potting soil, perlite mix with peat moss is best.

Then your good to go.

Thanks for the reply, Garden Girl. That helps a lot.

Wow, a speeded up process is a few weeks. Would hate to see a slow process. Hopefully my warm back porce with also help (90 F in daytime).

Default My way is a little different.

What I do is about 2/3 fill up a gallon size ziplock bag with seeds and the other 1/3 of the bag fill with fast draining potting mix, then mix it up. Don't add any water, the mix alone will fog up the bag. i place the bag by my water heater and most of the seeds will getminate in about a month. it's a easy way to get a lot of seedlingsl; each bag has about 1,000 seeds in it.

i usually sell my trees on ebay so i have pleanty to go around. let me know if you still have trouble and i can send you some getminated seeds or seedlings.
