      I knew who he was when I saw the listing you posted. I bought from him years back when he had a slightly different name. He disappeared from eBay for a while but is now back - I have him on favorites. He's also showed up at the Palm Beach Palm Sale. Overall I was satisfied with the quality of his plants but he is expensive. I think I got my second, smaller Cham dam from him way back then. It died about a year ago. $25.00 for a tiny seedling is price-y but he's the only game in town. Right now I don't have funds in my Paypal account so I'll just have to wait. Wish I knew his seed source.
      This is a pretty sturdy little palm. I leave mine outside on the lanai all winter, at least so far. Actually I'm more worried about my sweltering summers with this guy. I suspect he enjoys cooler weather. Come spring I will probably move him deep into my mini-jungle where I keep my Cham tuercks. Texture of its leaves is similar to Cham adscendens if you are familiar with that species. Definitely a shade palm. Doesn't seem bothered by insects or mites like some Chams but sprinkling some used coffee grounds around its stem won't hurt. Don't overwater it. A really nice palm that should be more available.

      Meg, this grower is in Florida but don't know how close to you he is. I was trying to find out if this was a unique species so I could buy one or two as I try to collect Chamaedoreas. I'm waiting for a answer back on a different chamadorea he has for sale if he'll hold it for me till weather warms for shipping and if he does, will buy one or two of these as well. Shipping to me now would mean death.
      What has been your experience with this palm? growth speed? toughness etc.

      Here is the listing.
      Chamaedorea dammeriana
      "Butterfly Palm"
       
      Natural Habitat:  Native to Costa Rica, where it can be found growing in understory rainforests.
      Description:  A small solitary palm that can grow to heights around 10 feet tall.  Each palm grows on a pencil thin dainty trunk.  The crown emerges 6-8 undivided or partially divided leaves.  A large heart shaped leaflet sits at the end of the branch, followed by 2-3 sets of cigar shaped leaflets. 
      This makes a great potted palm for a shady patio or porch.  It can be planted in the same pot as other plants without any issues.
      Environment:  Due to its understory habitat, this palm requires a lot of shade and any direct sunlight should be avoided.  It needs regular watering's and it best suited for a protected area, where it is safe from strong winds and rain.  Cold Hardy to the near freezing, it should be protected during any freezing tempertures.  Zones 10-11.
      Seedling:  The seedlings are 3-5 inches tall with 2-3 leaves.  They decently rooted in their 4" pots and can be stepped up upon arrival

      Hi Bryan,
      Welcome to the forum.  I used to live in Coral Springs for a couple of years (2000 and 2001), and I am NUTS for coconut palms!
