New Palms Seeds and Spouts

Over the past few weeks I have collected seeds from several palms, I have traded seeds with my new friend Brian in the O-Town, and also a friend from India named Kris mailed me seeds. So I have had lots of preperation to do. I have open the seed room back up for the winter and have a heater on a thermostat that I can set for 80 degrees. I have a thermometer showing a 80-81.7 degrees in the old shower stall. Here are my pictures they have been taken over the past few weeks.
