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.
