Phoenix loureiroi is an extremely variable species with a widespread distribution ranging from India through China to the Philippines. This form is native to the foothills of the Hindu Kush in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, formerly known as the North-West Frontier Province in northeastern Pakistan, and next to the famous Khyber Pass to Afghanistan. Temperatures go well below freezing here in winter and summers are blasting hot, a different and much drier climate than this species is adapted to in the Himalayas.

The following are general tips that will work for all species.
If the seeds appear dry, soak them in warm water for 1-3 days. For sowing, use peat, coco fiber, or similar media. It should be moist but not wet. Take a fistful. If you can just squeeze a couple of drops of water from it, then it is about right. If you can squeeze more, then it is too wet. If too dry, add a little water and try again. Mix the seeds with the moist compost and place into a clear plastic (ziploc) bag, label with species name and date, and seal.
No light is required for germination. Tropical species such as Licuala, Bismarckia or Cyrtostachys require heat, around 30°C/90°F. Temperate species such as Trachycarpus, Ceroxylon or Parajubaea will germinate at lower temperatures, and heat may actually prevent germination. You may want to check our website for individual requirements.
Check weekly for signs of activity by looking for white roots through the plastic. Ensure that the medium does not dry out. The seeds can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 years (or more) to germinate; however, most will sprout after 4-6 weeks.
After the seeds have sprouted, plant each in a tall, narrrow pot using a well-drained medium, label, and place in ample light, but not in full sun. Aim to keep the soil moist (but not wet) at all times, feed and pot on as required.
