Germination and dormancy breaking treatments in Chamaerops humilis (dwarf fan palm) seeds


, : Germination and dormancy breaking treatments in Chamaerops humilis (dwarf fan palm) seeds. Proceedings of the ISTA Forest Tree and Shrub Seed Committee Workshop, Prague Pruhonice, Czech Re ic, 20-22 October 2003: 56-58

Different treatments for promoting germination of dwarf palm seeds were investigated. Pretreatments applied were: seed soaking in distilled water with few drops of bleach, boiling water, hot water, soaking in sulphuric acid and manual scarification. Germination tests were performed under controlled conditions at 15/25 degrees C and a 16-h light photoperiod. Some seeds were stored at 15 degrees C for 80 days - when soaking in sulphuric acid resulted in the highest final germination percentage.
