Starting Lady Palm from seed.

Posted by allenrob 6b (My Page) on

I've never started Palm trees from seed and I need some instruction on how to do it. Are they different starting from seed than other plants? They are going to be indoor container plants. Which potting soil should I use? Should I use the pine bark 5-1-1 mix or Al's gritty mix for this plant? Should I start from seed in this mix or use seedling mix. I know a bunch of questions but considering that, I know nothing and this would be my first starting from seed project, I need instruction from experienced growers. Thanks in advance.

Scratch seed then soak in water for 24 hours...then lightly cover with well drained soil....soil temp 75-80F for germination...may take 21 to 540 days to germinate.
soil pH 6.0 tp 7.5
