Sabal minor, the hardy fan palm (dwarf palmetto) is native to Central and South America. Sabal minor grows very slowly and only reaches a maximum height of 2 m. The fan-shaped leaves look very decorative.
Soak the palm seeds for two days in lukewarm water.
The seeds are sown in mineral-based cat litter or perlite in plastic-pots. Please sow the seeds on the mineral soil and cover the seeds with 5 mm - 10 mm mineral soil.
Then put the plastic pot in a zip-lock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm , a zip-lock bag of size 12 x 17 cm is recommended . Fill in the zip-lock bag as much tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer, so that after the absorption of the substrate a few mm of water remain on the bottom.
Location: on the windowsill or in a small greenhouse in partial shade, daytime temperatures at about 77-86 F, somewhat lower at night at 68-77 F.
Germination time: 45 - 60 days, patience is required.
price is for 3 seeds
