My Nano-Greenhouse

15 posts in this topic

Only when a seedling has problems with its roots (as in this case with a L itapebiense seedling without a real radicle) I am using a (kind of) greenhouse.

In all other cases my window sills (for seedlings) or my living room (around my home office for bigger ones) is enough (without any humidifier), no matter if the palms are »tropical« (as e.g. Licuala) or not.

Good method. When I transplant some seedings from the germination bed to its fist pot I make a individual green-house with this elasic cover plates:

I don’t think that your Sabal seedlings need a »greenhouse«. But be careful that they don’t get mouldy when it gets so dark now!

I don't wanna risk, I've lost some seedings of this genus because of dryness in this premature status. I ventilate it twice a day and I'll remove the cover when the fist plumule gets more prominent.

Main concept is the same, only difference lies in details.

LoL,  you have a good short of containers. I'm imagine you searching for yoghurts with the appropiate shape at the supermarket :lol:

I often use an upturned jam jar with a 12mm hole drilled in the bottom to stop the excessive heat build up, air flow and so that I can water the plant through it. It works for me, my own minnie green house.

Nice! My S. uresana is happy too. Now I have some seedings of Butyagrus and Livistona nitida under my nano-greenhouses.

My Butyagrus seedings under nano-greenhouse show different states of growing. I'll remove the plastic cover when the new sprout reach the soil and show the plumule.

Who is under the protection of nano-greenhouses? Two seedings of Acrocomia totai (I removed a little the soil to show its premature side roots).

    • Anyone else successfully grow Ravenea rivularis
      By tfinvold
      Anyone get their indoor Majesty palm to grow and open spears into fronds? Thing is I live at 7,000ft in Flagstaff a fairly dry mountain climate so its very dry indoors usually. It is in the kitchen which give it a little more moisture and heat from cooking. After 1 year of the original transplant from the nursery container I had used some cheap organic generic fruit fertilizer I had laying around. It's mostly bone meal and has a good amount of nitrates. At first I was thinking it had low potassium as the leaves were sort of yellow on some fronds but I checked the soil it wasn't too soggy so then I figured it just didn't get enough light and I pretty much left it there in front of the sliding glass door for a while. Nothing happened for months, the about 3 months ago one spear turned into a frond and opened up so then I fertilized it to help it out and put a mirror behind the palm it to help it gather the limited amount of sunlight I have to work with (3-4 hours a day of direct and some shaded sunlight) now three more spears popped open all at once this last week. So I used a little bit more organic fertilizer to keep things going as it contains no chemicals as you can't really over do it on the organic fertilizer.


    • Cryosophila warscewiczii indoors?
      By sashaeffer
      Gorgeous palm to be sure and listed as a great indoor palm, but I haven't had the best of luck. Anyone on here keep these potted and indoors with a success story?
    • What Is The Longest Time You Went Without Water a Palm In a Pot?
      By PalmTreeDude
      What is the longest time period a palm of yours went in a pot without being watered? Yes, rain counts as being watered. For me it was about one month. 
    • C. elegans
      By topwater
      C. elegans, the most underrated palm ever.  It grows everywhere on earth, requires little attention, and its gorgeous.  I found the one on the right last week at my local sprawlmart, removed 90% of the seedlings and got this triple.  I'd love to see more.   Eventually they'll go to to the garden, until then I enjoy them up close.     My last dollar for scale.

      C. elegans could be the most underrated palm ever.  They're beautiful, very hardy, anyone can grow them indoors.  I found the one on the right at a sprawlmart last week, removed 90% of the seedlings and have this triple beauty.  The one on the left has been doing well with benign neglect for a year or so.    The big one goes to the garden March 1st.      I'd love to see more, thanks!  My last dollar for scale.
