Seeds from this species ...
...very easy to germinate and need up to 1 month to
as with most species of livistonia that I have germinated these also have a thin outer casing on the seed which
needs to be removed .Simply press the seed onto a hard surface and this is enough to crack the outer covering.
which is then removed .I then soaked the seeds in water for 48 hours changing the water after 24 hours and placing
a small amout of thiram [fungicide]powder in the water for the last 6 hours.The seeds were then placed in a
zip lock bag with spaghnam moss that had been moistened and then squeezed firmly so that most of the water had
been removed.The seeds were then placed on a heating pad and after 16 days the first 3 have germinated.These
seeds are remote germinators and after the first root is about 1 inch long I will plant out into individual
pots and keep on a heating tray until the first leaf appears
