Propagation
 
Split Seed

The split seed, notice the growing embryo and hydrated seed.
 
The Wodyetia Produces seeds at approximately twelve years of age. It has a very durable and tough seed. It remains viable up to a year if stored properly. Germination occurs in some cases within 30 days of planting but can take up to one year.

They love the heat, so bottom heating is a must in cooler months. Daytime temperatures in the green house should be 90 to 100 degrees. A moist and humid atmosphere is recommended.

A sterile rooting medium is also essential. We use peat and perlite with excellent results. The roots go deep quickly before spikes appear on top. A minimum of 6" deep potting medium is required for optimum growth. Plant the seed horizontally and cover with no more than a quarter of an inch of topsoil.

Fresh seed is necessary to ensure your propagation success, and Foxtail Farms uses only freshest seed.
