    • 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.

Jubaea, butia, hybrid?

7 posts in this topic

Anyone see hybrid in this one? I have posted it before but it is growing really fast (way too fast for Jubaea in our climate) and is quite blue and getting more so. Any thoughts appreciated.

cheers

Richard

Was it grown from a Jubaea seed or bought as a Jubaea?

I think that it's just too early to tell.

Hi Alberto, bought as a Ceroxylon! It had it's first leaf plus a bit of a spear but no seed attached. The whitish tinge was visible on the leaf underside which probably accounted for the outrageous mis-ID. I've had it for about three years which seems way too fast for Jubaea or Butia in my growing conditions. Another weird thing is it doesn't have a particularly vigorous root system. The other genus that springs to mind is Parajubaea and they certainly can grow this fast. I guess Matty is right, I may just have to be patient though I know there are some pretty keen eyes when it comes to these cocosoid palms which all look very similar to me at a young age.

cheers Richard

It does not look like a Parajubaea seedling. It's in the Jubaea/Butia range.
