Roystonea Regia Seeds

Roystonea Regia  seeds are easy to grow. They just need 2-3 month and a hot and wet soild. We will have to be aware of fungi.
Previous treatments
Soak the seeds for 48 hours in warm water (30ºC) 

Soil
The ideal substrate is a mixture of sand and black  peat in equal parts. 
Mix and water it well. Drain the mixture, pressing to expel all the water.
The soil has to be wet but no waterlogged.
Fill with the soil the container chosen to sow the seeds.
Watering the soil and pots with fungicide will improve the rathe germination.

Sowing
Put the seeds on the substrate, leaving two cm between them.
Cover with a thick layer of soil around 3 cm.

Environment
The seeds may take 2 or 3 months to germinate under perfect conditions.
For all that time we have to keep constant moisture and temperature.
In order to improve germination, the temperature should be around 25-30ºC.
Using the bottom heat wil accelerate the germination.
