Quite low percentage to germination because of its hard shell . I have to move the outer shell out before sowing to make its germinated faster . Used plastic bag technique for keep moist and warm with coco fiber . First seed sprout within 5 weeks and the root is very slow development .

I obtained seed for Syagrus sancona from a friend in Colombia and learned that if you live in the United States,
you never want to import anything directly from Colombia. Much better to get them from RPS! Customs scruitinized
my shipment in every possible way and delayed delivery beyond belief. Once I had the seed, it turned out to
be very easy to germinate and the seedlings have grown steadily for about two years. I plan to plant a number
of them outdoors this spring.

I bought 10 seeds in february 2004, and wait for 10 months to germination.First of them was a surprise, but
others are in coming.There were in zip bags, with vermiculite and perlite, without heater till November, and
then have been about 30ºC.Perhaps some heat months before should reduce the germination time.
