Washingtonia filifera , California Fan Palm Sprouts!

Today I went out to check on a few of the seed bins that I have started recently, and to my suprise I had a bin full of new Washingtonia filifera , or California Fan Palm sprouts. Hands down these have to be the fastest palm seeds to germinate. Back on July 14, I planted around 30 seeds that I had collected from a huge filfera. Here are a few pictures. The first is of the mother tree I collected the seeds from. The next is the bin inside a black plastic bag, and the last are the spouts inside.


  1. Wow, well done! I so wish I lived next door, then I could come and scrounge a couple :D

  2. I have a couple thousand. Pass me your address and i will send you a dozen

  3. What a nice person to offer the poster some seedlings.

    I have just got one through lolol Very proud of course.

    I'm going to sow some more.
