    • PRIVATE MESSAGING - IMPORTANT NOTICE   01/02/2017

      There has been some confusion regarding the Messaging System on PalmTalk - and what is private and what is posted publicly. I've been asked to explain the two. There are two forms of messages - what I will call "Private Messages" which are Private, and "Activity Messages" which are public. A Private Message is designated with an envelope icon. It is available at the top of every page (click it and use "Compose New"). It is also accessible by hovering over a User's name or Avatar and clicking the envelope icon. Or it is also available on a User's Profile Page - at the top - again, with the envelope icon. Anywhere you see this envelope icon, you can click it and send a Private Message. An "Activity Message" is public. These are the "What's on your Mind" and "Leave a Message on [User X's] Feed" boxes where you can leave a public message directly as a Status Update (on your Profile or Main PT Page) or on a User's Profile Page - which updates his Status Update and also posts on PT's Main Status Update Page. These are "Activities" and labeled as such on the Profile Pages.  What is confusing is that both options (Private and Activity) are available on a User's Profile Page.  Just remember, that if you want to send a Private Message, use the envelope icon link - wherever you see it. That will get you to the Private Messaging Center. Any other "Status Update," like "What's on your Mind," or "Leave a Message on [so-and-so's] Feed," is public. I would make it less confusing if I could, but I can't.

Please post pics of your potted Syagrus weddelliana 1916 :greenthumb: (= Microcoelum weddellianum 1956 = Lytocaryum weddellianum 1944 = Cocos weddelliana 1871)! — At present I have only three year young S weddelliana (of course all grown up from seed), because my (hundreds upon hundreds) older ones didn’t like my several world trips and other journeys … :(:violin: — But at first I’ll post the oldest pic of a Cocos weddelliana WENDL. from 1871, and then a photo of my “working” place as it looks like today: :D

Took two pics from different angles since they don't always photograph well. This palm I bought from Floribunda.

These two Lytos were kept as bonsai in the same tiny 8×9cm clay pots on window sills all the years since their germination:

At present it is again Syagrus BECC. 1916, but we can keep a »sub-genus« Lytocaryum TOLEDO 1944 with 4 species:

Hi Pal, thank you. I did not grow it from seed, I only purchased it in December and it has grown quite a bit since, how old do you think it was? Pic below December 2015.

I am yet to grow my first palm from seed, it is something I would love to do but space is a problem in my small apartment!

It is hard to guess how old it might be. The growth depends on many conditions. If you look at my palms around my working place above you will find bonsai sized mini palms and some taller ones, up to more than 1 m (front left), all of the same age (3 years). I have posted a couple pics on Flickr which document the growth of the Lyto weddell I have grown up in 2013:

These 3 Lyto weddell were exactly 2 years old (since germination from seed), but had very different growth rates. They were potted in 12x12cm clay pots.

And even as tiny seedlings with only 3 leaves they are looking very »palmy« (in 8x8x9cm plastic pot & 8x9cm clay pot):

Yes correct Pal.

Hoehnei is proving itself as a very suitable indoor potted plant in my living room. Growing vigorously and faster than weddellianum. I feel the 1 gallon size hoehnei will be larger than the 3 gallon size weddellianum in maybe 2 or 3 years.

That is the problem with my L insigne: They are getting too tall for indoors … :mellow:

The old pot (Ø14.8×H17.4 cm) became a little too tight, so I gave the palm a new one (inside 18×18×H23cm): :)

      anyone from tropical climate  growing lytocaryum weddellianum  in outdoor. i heard they don't like much water 
    • Lytocaryum weddellianum - Repotting
      By benko
      Hello all, I have a Lytocaryum weddellianum growing on my kitchen window sill which is south facing. It has been doing really well and continues to grow through the winter months! I have noticed it's roots are starting to pop out the bottom of the pot, I was wondering if any of you think I should re-pot it in a few months or just leave it in its current pot for longer? I am thinking of getting a Lechuza pot for it with Lechuza pon. I have only been watering when the soil is close to drying out, allowing the water to drain. Also does anyone know how it copes with root disturbance? If you could let me know your thoughts it would be greatly appreciated.

    • Lytocaryum: Syagrus insignis vs. S. weddellianum
      By Pal Meir
      Syagrus insignis vs S. weddelliana
      Between 1995 and 2010 the species Lytocaryum insigne (now again Syagrus insignis) was treated as synonym for the "correct" term Lytocaryum weddellianum (now Syagrus weddelliana). In this thread I am trying to document the differences between these two species during their first years since germination.
      Literature discussing the genus Lytocaryum (Noblick & Lorezi 2010) and its transfer to Syagrus (Noblick & Meerow 2015) can be downloaded as pdf:
      http://www.palms.org/palmsjournal/2010/v54n1p5_17.pdf
      http://www.researchgate.net/publication/281374491_The_transfer_of_the_genus_Lytocaryum_to_Syagrus
      (or via IPS)
      It would be very nice if also other members could contribute their photos which show the characteristic differences between these two species or their similarities when they have pinnate leaves.
      My first sketch shows the typical habit of adult trees. I regret that I don’t have my own photos which I could post here. The next photos document that it can be impossible to distinguish their seeds: Seeds of S. insignis may be smaller or bigger or of the same size.
      The other photos document the differences between the seedlings, beginning with photos of half a year old juvenile plants. All Syagrus weddelliana germinated in April 2013, all Syagrus insignis in February and March 2014.
      Here the sketches: Actually S. insignis (here from Espírito Santo) is much taller than S. weddelliana (here Rio de Janeiro) and its trunk is also much thicker:

      Two seeds looking totally alike:

      All seeds of S. insignis which germinated in 2014 were smaller than the average of L. weddelliana:

      And here three seeds of actually germinated palms:

    • Experimenting with Lytocaryum Weddellianum
      By Small palm
      Hey Palmtalk, I am fairly new to growing Palm trees. Started my collection back in August 2012. Right now I am focused on the Lytocaryum Weddellianum Palm. I just recieved 2 of them from a seller on ebay about a week ago. These palms look really nice. The main things that stand out to me with these palms is how glossy and lace like the fronds are.

      The reason I say I am experimenting with them is because I ordered 2. One for indoors and one for outdoors. I hope to have good luck in and out.

      I have a couple questios too. I would like to eventually grow these if my palms survive and produce seeds. Have any of you had any luck with these palms producing seed indoors? Also how old and big are these palms on average before they start flowering and producing seeds?

      Here's a picture of the bigger of my 2 palms. It stands about 3 to 4 feet tall and is going in a mostly shady corner of the backyard.
