I wish to share here few stills & methods adopted by my friends to whom i had sent these palmyra seeds for the year 2008.the big ones are big mama while those that look small are all standard fruticas type.

In this still you can see how the seeds were packed,here you see one standard form(SA2) & rest (B2),(F3) are big mama !

From now the germination stills will follow,of various members..

Here is a useful link for all of you,since germinating a fresh seed is easy but after that to protect it from Damp-Off ! is bit too tricky. :wacko:

Here is a useful Link ! for you all.. :rolleyes:

Love,

Kris :)

Hi, Kris.

Thanks for any information given.

I tell you a little like the thing is:

The experiment Borassus flabellifer in Mallorca is divided into two parts:

The first one I have taken the seeds germinated at a nursery of cactus that's in my village.

-The second: the other 2 got into the house.

The idea is to find out what differences there are between one who receives constant heat (min. 10 ° and a maximum of 30 degrees of glass), and between the other two that have a maximum of 20 º and 10 º minimum.

Although it is likely that this experiment is divided into a third.

-A seed in the nursery.

-Another in house.

-And another ... Why not in my ''greenhouse'' without regulatory temperatures? Would have minimal 7º ...

As for the pot: you know those bottles of 10 liters of water? I had thought about taking two, and paste them, and there sow the seed ... I fail to find deep pots ...

I will put pictures each month.

Kisses, and forgive my English. :P:)

These young Palmyra saplings were simply put in 2 liter mineral water bottle,just incase if any local friend of mine wants to grow it in their gardens.all they have to do is to cut the plastic bottle and dig a pit and place it on the ground in early summer season ! :lol:

Lots of love to all the Palmyra fan out there..

Hello.

Clay pots? It would not take force to remove the palm tree then, jaja

Thanks for the photos and links.

Well, they can not do much damage to be 1 year in a pot of 50cm deep, no?

Anyway. Kisses.

Hi Monica :)

AdolfoGarca_BorrasusF_Experience01.jpg

Lots of love,

Kris :)

By the way i must say that folks here have taken seed germination work to the next level(Hi Tech) and as some have pointed out in various threads,that its an art to grow rare palms...seeing all the above stills i have started believing that fact !

El Jueves de esta semana, Se plantó en tierra el único Borassus flabellifer que salió adelante, de los que Kris marcó con "K". Los trabajadores se emocionaron tanto con el tubo, que el "entierro" fue casi una ceremonia, con un hoyo de tamaño infinito, el corte con radial de los laterales del tubo y muchas fotos. Está a unos 50 m de los Borassus aethiopum que sembramos en 1996... con 11 años de diferencia. :lol:

Enhorabuena Carlo!!

Las 3 germinaron, la que yo me quedé murió, la otra está bastante bien, y la tercera está en un vivero. No ha despuntado todavía. La voy a ver de vez en cuando. Parece estar bien.

Un saludo.
