Today’s photos show raindrops on the mature, red fruit of the Jamaican Royal Palm (Roystonea altissima)The fruits are beautiful to look at.I read that young Jamaican Royal Palm trees can grow from the seeds of their fruits.
I read here that the seeds should be sown in a well-drained, uniformly moist potting soil and kept warm (95°F is ideal). Royal palm seeds appear to have immature embryos at the time that the fruit falls, and thus will not germinate for 5 – 8 months after planting. The grass-like seedlings should be transplanted into containers after the second leaf emerges.
