Well that does it!! I officially believe that I am doing something right! While checking my incubators and finding my first Travellers Palm sprout, and my first Bottle Palm sprouts I have come across the mother load!! When I removed the lid to incubator 4 I discovered 14 Hybrid Canary Date Palm ( Phoenix canariensis ) sprouts!! This Canary Date Palm produces a red fruit instead of a gold fruit, this is the only way to tell them apart. Now I am amped!! I have to say, today was a good day!!! Here are some pictures of the sprouts. The straws in the pictures are dividers. The pellets on the left side are seeds that I just put in the dirt as is. The seeds on the right are seeds that I made small incisions or scratches on the seeds.
