Germinating Palm Seeds

Many who get bitten by the palm bug also get hooked on germination. The most difficult part of growing palm from seed is finding the patience. But if you've been growing palms, you have hopefully located some of that already.

You can always generate a lively discussion by asking some veteran germinators what is the best way to sprout seeds. And you will get as many recommendations and suggestions as those answering. While there are several differing techniques that will yield adequate results, there are some common themes and conditions that most germinators strive to achieve. It's how they go about achieving these conditions where the differences lie.
