I think you would have to categorize them by size. Like the most expensive.....

 

- In ground specimen palm

- boxed specimen

-15 gal

-1 gal

-seed

 

Or something like that.

For me :  Lodoicea maldivica is most expensive at every stage.

Lodoicea maldivica: I heard that you cannot(legally) get any seeds from the original island, but here and there in the tropics there are some palms producing seeds. How much might one seed cost? Just curiosity.

Bought a 5 gal Licuala mapu I thought was a little expensive @ $375. But then again I've bought many $200 and $300 cold hearty hybrid strap leaf seedlings.

Well interestingly enough - Lodoicea would probably have to be the most expensive seed, but I don't think you could even buy a 1, 5, 15 gal plant - maybe not even a boxed specimen. And I have no idea if a large in ground one could be moved. If so, that would have to be an expensive palm.

 

But how much could a large rare in ground specimen be worth if it can't be moved successfully?

Most expensive plant I have ever bought was a two year old seedling JBxQ for $150.00 (mail order) three years later I found one at a plant sell for half that price. 

Most expensive big palm (24"box) Jubaea $600.00. It died two years ago with a low of 12F for three nights five days below freezing did it end.  :badday:


  • 0

Last six winter lows… 12F, 15F, 15F, 26F, 25F, 16F.  2014-15 monthly winter lows Oct. 43F/ 6.1C, Nov. 21F/−6.1C, Dec. 21F/-6.1C.

Lodoicea maldivica hands down. Just because something is not offered for sale, doesn't mean it hasn't got a price to it. I think it's unfortunate (and hopefully would never ever happen), but there is a "magic" number that would make the government of the Seychelles dig one of the big ones out and ship it a "lucky" buyer. Whether the number consists of 6, 7, 8 or 9 figures doesn't matter. In my opinion still the most expensive palm kind.

Not to sound flippant, but speaking from strictly an economic standpoint (allocation of scarce resources), then I think Hyophorbe Amaricaulis has to be considered as there is only one on the planet (that we know of).

I purchased two seeds @$1500 + $100 each for FedEx, from a ex-forum member subsequently banned from PT.
Both sprouted and are doing very well.
Never heard from the "stump head" again, don't kno circumstances of said banning..moved on but thankful

The $300 price point is a bad one for me. "Iggy..Biccy & Mapu". Each $300...all died.

Licuala cordata split leaf form would be a bit exy .. and a mature Lic. mapu with a bit of trunk would be 4 figures easily.

Hey Bro. Ziff's fully mature Copernicia baileyana in Manalapan, Fl. in his jungle off A1A. One million dollars US does not obtain your attention for the purchase of one palm specimen? Are you struggling?
