Trachycarpus fortunei (Chinese Windmill Palm) is an evergreen palm forming a small tree with a terminal tuft of deeply divided, fan-shaped, dark green leaves, up to 3 ft. wide (1 m). They rise atop a stout trunk that is densely covered with hairy black fibers from old leaf sheaths.
How To Grow:
Trachycarpus fortunei (Chinese Windmill Palm) can easily be propagated by seeds.
However, it requires patience because the seed can take up to two to three months to germinate.
For growing Trachycarpus palms from seeds, sow them in a small container in a very thin layer of soil and place it in a very warm and humid place.
Also, make sure it’s getting sufficient light.
Winter or early spring is the best time for growing palms from the seeds, move young plants outdoors in the summer.
However, do not transplant the young plants until they have developed proper root systems and three to four sets of leaves, at least.
This is to prevent the risk of root shock some plants may get from transplanting.
