Foxtail Palm are small palm trees native to Australia. Like most palm trees they require high heat and humidity and will only grow in zones 10 and 11, on the USDA scale. The palm grows best from seed instead of cuttings, so you’ll need to follow a few tips. Soaking over night and up to three days seems to work best to get the seed ready for germination. You’ll also need to scratch up the seed to replicate the falling from great heights. Once done, plant immediately to get it to grow into a healthy tree.
- The palm is from Australia and needs warm zones to grow in
- The seed should be soaked for 48 to 72 hours ahead of time to make sure it is ready to plant
- You’ll need to score the seed before planting to replicate the battering it typically takes falling to the ground
“Plant the seeds in your garden immediately, as foxtail palm seeds don’t store well. The fresher, the better.”
