Chamaedorea Radicalis Surprise

10 posts in this topic

I was doing some re-potting of various plants and palms a couple days ago. I emptied a pot of soil out on the ground, and a sprouted palm seed caught my eye. Upon a close look, I found out it was a C. radicalis seedling that I had tried to sprout last year! I must have lost the seed in the pot it originally was in so I used the soil to pot something else (in this case a R. regia seedling). It's my only C. radicalis I've gotten to sprout so far and I really hope I can keep it alive. I've never seen one of this species in this part of Florida.

Potting it up.

Advice help if you can- did I plant it too deep?

Good luck! — BTW I wouldn’t plant the seedling so deep:

Did I send you free seed? Sometimes they do take a while.

Oh yeah, they were yours! Made a bunch of rookie mistakes with a lot of them. Happy I got one to sprout though.

Im surprised how many seeds I've given up on only to have them germinate as much as a year later.

    • Chamaedorea ID
      By Kajsa12
      Hi, a happy 2017 to you all.
      My first post on PT, although I' ve been reading here for some time.
       
      A few years ago I bought 3 Chamaedorea spp. from a nursery in our country.. They were from different batches and all were sold as Chamaedorea elegans 'Jade'.
      Neither of them looked like C. elegans to me, so I hope you can help me with the correct ID.
      I've been searching on Palmpedia and reserchgate (for floral structures, see:https://www.researchgate.net/publication/28238365_Floral_structure_in_the_Neotropical_palm_genus_Chamaedorea_Arecoideae_Arecaceae)
       
       
      The first one:

       

       

       

       

       
      The closest I could get is Chamaedorea sartorii (female), but I hope someone can confirm this.
       
      Cheers, Henri
    • Burretiokentia
      By KrisKupsch
      Hello and welcome to 2017,
      I understand some people haven't had the opportunity to germinate these species at all, except maybe Burretiokentia hapala and B.vieillardii. 
      Have enough trials been done to ascertain a rank out of 5, 1 being difficult and 5 easy of the species?
      I'm currently going with:
      B.dumasii ? never tried it. 
      B.grandiflora 1 (obtained 1 from 10 seeds)
      B.hapala 4 (seed down now but apparently not too difficult to sprout).
      B.koghiensis ? never tried it.
      B.vieillardii 3 (6 from 20 seeds). 
      Any information/experiences would help boost my efforts down the track.
      obviously a number of variables could be concerned ie cultural factors, but please share. I like % rates of success being a good measure. 
      regards Kris

    • ID please
      By wimmie
      Today, at a wholesaler's here in Holland, I came across a Chamaedorea-species I don't recognize. The label says metallica, but that surely is not correct. The very dark colour of the stems got my attention. Any ideers?


    • 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.
