I planted ponytail palm seeds before checking out how to do it, and this is how they sprouted. I've looked at pictures of other ponytail palm seedlings and they look nothing like this. Will they sprout out like they're supposed to?
Here's an updated picture(minus the prickly pear I'm trying to grow). They're doing very well. Had to bring them inside because of night temps. The little one on the end is a new addition from another of my seeds that sprouted late. I am wondering one thing though; why are the leaves round instead of flat??
They look great, and much progress has been made! Awesome job you're doing. It's so much fun watching them grow! Love your new cactus too, it's so cute. Any future updates are appreciated, and thank you for this update
Hello there. I was wondering how long you guys needed to wait for your ponytail palms to look like that? I just planted ten seeds and am going all over the internet to get as much info as possible! This forum looks like its got great experienced users!
Most palms can take a while to germinate 60 days to 2 years. They are not fast growers. The pony tail palms took about 6 months to start to bulb up. Other palms will look immature for a year or more. There are over 800 palms so people specialize in them. I cannot tell a palm apart when they are small except by its class.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
My ponytails took about a month or so before I started noticing them poking through the soil. But then watch out! They grew like wildfire! Yes Applestar, they have the bulbous little beginnings of their trunks now, this winter has been kinda rough on them, with a little browning on the tips of the leaves, but they'll be fine. If you're like me u can't wait till Spring! Guess what guys, it's next week! I'll take pics of their little bulbs and post them soon.Ttyl Oh yeah, jurf, don't plant them in too big of pots. They like to get root bound.
