Palm seed germination

International Plant Propagators' Society: Combined Proceedings 1995; 44: 304-307

Palm seed germination

Some experiments on the seed propagation of ornamental palms (as indoor foliage plants), carried out in Hawaii, are summarized. The areas covered are seed collection, seed treatment, germination conditions (namely the growing medium and its temperature) and transplanting stage.
