Germinating (Queen) Palm Seeds
  1. Microwave humidified dirt mix to sterilize it and let it cool down
  2. Using a sharpie, identify Ziplock bags with palm type, date, etc…
  3. Add humid dirt to Ziploc bags (not too wet or the seeds will rot)
  4. Add seeds to bags
    • For queen palm seeds, I have had better luck so far with orange seeds that just fell off the tree (as opposed to green seeds that I cut off the tree).
  5. Set the bags on a shelf at room temperature (they don’t need light)
  6. Wait from 1 to 6 months (no need to add water if you keep Ziplock bags sealed)
  7. Transplant germinated seeds to pots

The sprouted seeds should look similar to this: queen-pal-sprouted-seed
