Palaquium rostratum is a gigantic tree found in the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, Borneo, and Java; in the Peninsula it has been obtained in Penang, Perak, Pahang, and Singapore, in a way that suggests that it is of general distribution; but by towering above the forest canopy it is easily overlooked. The research was conducted to study the seed germination of P. rostratum and to study the effect of seed storage. The study was carried out in the Bogor Botanic Gardens on February 2008. Seeds of P. rostratum were starting to germinate epigeally in 17 days after sowing and the seeds can be stored at room temperature for two week with a viability of 61.32% and 26.41% water content.
