'King Kong' Radicalis seeds

9 posts in this topic

I just harvested and cleaned seeds of this unusually stout, trunking type Chamaedorea radicalis. I've

never seen another one quite like this.

I'd like to trade for other interesting seeds I can grow in my cool climate here on the Central Coast of

California. Send PM if interested. Perry

Perry, who's the daddy?

Big Daddy Matty;

Here's the story- I have a group of six planted in my front yard and a female had a heavy seed set polinated by a six foot trunking male. So, I got over 200 seedlings from that batch, and one of them grew much quicker and was far more robust than all it's 200+ siblings. That's the daddy and it's kept right next to the plant in the photo with no other radicalis in close proximity. I don't know if it's going to trunk yet. Perry

Luke, I'm not sure that the original female won't eventually trunk. you can see in the second photo (lower left) that it's busy again. Perry
