  • Where Are Date Plants Grown?

  • The date-fruit is found in hot and dry regions, including dessert lands. This is because date-fruit requires a lot of ground water to survive, but it also requires a dry and hot temperature to grow fruits.

  • How Are Date Plants Grown?

  • • For commercial purpose: Dates are grown from offshoots of mother tree.

  • • For non-commercial purpose: Dates are grown from seeds.

  • Grow Your Own Date Palm

  • • First, collect some fresh palm seeds.

  • • Soak the seeds in water for 24-48 hours. Change the water once/twice. Use a sharp knife or tweezers to pick out pieces of fruit flesh.

  • • Put some vermiculite in a plastic box. (Vermiculite is a natural mineral that expands when heated). Sprinkle some teaspoons of water. Then add the seeds and mix them lightly.

  • •  Seal the box and place in the warmest place in your house (e.g. hot water tank).

  • •  Check the seeds every few days (after 2 days). ONLY if vermiculite is VERY DRY, add few drops of water. Wait until the seeds sprout.

  • •  When the seeds sprout, plant them in small pots.

  • •  Date palms do not like being in pots which are too big for them, so when you repot them, put them in a small pot.

  • •  Bury them a little beneath the surface and water carefully (do not flood them with water).

  • • Keep them warm and then wait.

  • • At last, a long leaf will appear. And then can proceed to grow on your date palm!

  • Dates need warm temperatures and bright light, so grow them on a sunny windowsill or in a conservatory. Water the plants regularly.
