    • 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.

Tillering Dypsis

9 posts in this topic

Which of the following species tiller?

D. cabadae

D. pembana

D. sp. "Mayotte" (is this even a different species, or is it one of the above?).

Just trying to sort out what I have.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Matty B. The first two species do not seem to be tillering, but what I grew from seed as sp. "Mayotte" is definitely tillering. I just potted it up from 3 gal to 15 gal and it looks generally like the other two except for the tillering. I actually have two. One does not seem to be quite as tillering, and it also spit out a second stem. The very tillering one is a single so far.

Hi Jason, In addition I think you should know, those are all palm bushes, (clustering), Ed

Thanks Ed. So far the pembanas and the cabadae don't seem to be big enough to start clustering. Only one gallons. The only one so far to split was the one "Mayotte," and that was at about the 3 gal stage. By contrast my lanceolata clustered much sooner and definitely more profusely.

Mayotte discussions have been held a few times before on zee board of doom. I think the upshot was there is no individual mayotte species as such, but a form of lanceolata or cabadae (can't recall which) that hails from the island of Mayotte. If you have a tillering palm, then it is likely to be something else entirely, but perhaps from the Mayotte Island (s).

Any chance of some photos of said palms ?..

The pembana types do grow sideways a bit sometimes, but they dont tiller from what i've seen

Perhaps it is not tillering so much as growing laterally, but there does seem to be a definite downward tendency.
