Plant Experimentation: Ponytail Palm, Day 1.

Another experiment. Ponytail Palm seeds.

I decided to germinate these in moist paper towels. I spread the seeds out on one half of a moistened paper towel.

I folded the paper towel over, and moistened that side as well.

The paper towel is inside a tupperware container.

I was not sure whether it should be sealed or not, so I left one corner cracked. I placed the tupperware container in a dark drawer, and will check it regularly.

    • Hi SignalChaos,

      Two of the ponytail palm seeds are still going strong. One is living inside near a window facing north, and the other is living outside on the front porch. I’ll try to get updated pictures up tomorrow. =)
