20 Washingtonia Filifera Robusta Palm Tree Seeds, Exotic Tropical Mexican Fan Palm Tree Fresh Live Seeds

INCREDIBLY EASY TO GERMINATE - ALONG WITH Washingtonia Filifera Robusta Palm THESE ARE THE EASIEST EXOTIC PLANT TREE SEEDS YOU WILL EVER GROW!

Washingtonia Filifera is also known as the American Cotton Palm and grows at a medium pace (faster with long warm summers!) The seeds germinate quite quickly (typically in under 1 month) and the single monocot strap leaf often reaches 6 inches of growth in under 8 weeks.

Palm trees can be grown from seed at any time of the year. Once germinated keep the seedlings above 15C and you will see how quickly the Washingtonias start to grow!

Cold Hardiness
It will survive temperatures of −10 °C (14 °F)
Young specimens should be protected below -1C

The seeds require no pretreatment and will germinate quickly once exposed to warm, moist conditions. The resulting seedlings mature slowly and must be grown in pots for at least one year before planting them outdoors.

1. Fill 6-inch-deep pots with sterile medium, such as a mix of half milled peat and half perlite, or half seed-starting compost and half coarse sand. Add water until the medium feels moderately moist in the top 3 inches. Prepare one pot for each seed you want to plant.

2. Place one date palm seed in each container. Press the seed onto the surface of the growing medium so it is halfway buried. Cover the seed with a thin layer of coarse sand. Mist the sand liberally after sowing to help settle it onto the seed.

3. Place the containers in a bright, sheltered spot with indirect sunlight. Warm the containers with a germination mat set to around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover the containers with a propagator or a sheet of plastic wrap.

4. Maintain light moisture in the growing medium to prevent mold and bacterial growth while still providing the seed with the necessary moisture. Let the medium become nearly dry just beneath the surface, then water to a 1-inch depth.

5. Watch for the first grasslike sprouts in three to eight weeks. Leave the propagator and germination mat in place until the date palm seedlings reach 2 inches in height, then turn off the germination mat. Remove the propagator two weeks after germination.

6. Transplant the date palms into 1-gallon nursery containers filled with sand-based potting soil. Grow them under warm, bright conditions outdoors such as near a lightly shaded south-facing wall. Provide 2 inches of water weekly during their first summer.

7. Acclimate the date palm seedlings to direct sun at the end of their first summer by placing them in an increasingly bright position for more hours each day. Grow them in full sun for one full year to ensure their root system is strong and well-developed before out-planting them. Provide supplemental water during the summer and in winter if no rain falls for longer than two weeks.

8. Transplant the date palms into the landscape or into permanent planters in early summer of their second year. Grow them in full sun in sandy, fast-draining soil. Provide supplemental water for their first few years in the ground to promote fast growth.


Buy With Confidence

We aim to provide our customers with the highest quality product and service. As with all seeds 100% germination success should not be expected although we select varieties known for their relatively higher success rates.

Please note:

Every effort is taken to ensure the quality of our seeds. Germination is affected by such factors as temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media. Although we do everything possible to get seeds to you in the best possible condition these factors are totally outside of our control and once you receive the seeds its over to you. Consequently, we can take no responsibility for the suitability to your local conditions of any variety offered, the indicative cultivation advice provided or ultimately the varieties performance. As such you should seek local advice to carefully ensure your local conditions and the time of season are appropriate to the variety purchased.

Thank you for taking the time to review our listing.
