growing palmetto trees

the seeds were brought back from FL back in October...i had collected them under the tree...they have to be soaked and then pealed back to reveal the seeds seen here...

  the soil is wet/dampened and the baggie sealed. it has to be stored in a warm, dark place for awhile...i placed it under my bed on top of the heat vent around the end of November in 2012...

  this is how the seeds looked in the back in the early part of February...you can see the beginning of some of the roots appearing. 

   more roots in the baggie...

  in late February i planted the seeds that were viable. you can see the sprouts in this pot. this picture was taken in early March...

  more sprouts of palmetto trees from early March
