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.
