    • COMING PALMTALK CHANGES - PLEASE READ   02/14/2017

      In the coming week (probably beginning this weekend), several major changes will be occurring with PalmTalk. The result will be short periods of complete closure, or of limited viewing (that is, no posting - but viewing still possible). These changes are major and unexpected complications are always a possibility. So, please be patient and bear with us. For those interested, the first phase will be a migration of the entire site to a new more powerful server. After this is completed, a major upgrade to the newest version of the forum software will then be attempted. It is hoped that these improvements, along with some new configurations of various parameters made possible with the new server capabilities, will result in an elimination of some error messages and glitches which have been plaguing various tasks and viewing recently. As with any upgrade there will probably be some new and/or changed features, or ways of viewing and/or using the forum. I anticipate these will be minor, and as always if there is anything confusing or needing explanation, we will set up a topic to discuss them.

'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

I have other ripe C.radicalis seeds if you'd like them, but not 'King Kong'. Perry
