Lots of 'how to germinate acai' on Google. I linked 1 good one below that includes the pre-soak, soil, and heat requirements for germination.

Digdirt's (now) dead link was scraped by the wayback machine archive - Below is a snapshot of that linked Acai Palm page in 2011 when it was still working:

I have about 10 plants I planted from seeds. That was about 11/2 years ago. Now they are about 1 ft high. I have had no problems with them. Even in the winter time when temps get in the mid to upper 40s a couple of times they did great.
I live in SW Fl. and we have hot humid summers, so conditions seem to be very good. I do give them some plant food once every 3-4 weeks. I plan on keeping them in pots until they get about 6-7 ft and then put them in the ground.
