Good Day DoomsDave! I just wanted you to know that the Dypsis Plumosa seeds started to crack open. Little heads peeking out of six seeds so far. Others are ready to split shells also, will know later the next few days.  Growing in soil mix covered in sphagnum moss misted daily in vented plastic tomato pack heated on seedling mat @ 80 degrees. Not bad since they were planted on March 23rd, 2017.

Great going Dave!  This is one of the easiest Dypsis to germinate and grow.  Mine has been giving viable seed for years and they almost all germinate.

Another update, Dave, as of today. Check these numbers! There are only a few more left then by that time I can start to put them in the cell liners.

Bravo!

I recommend much deeper pots, like twice as deep, if you can.

Dave, you keep saying deeper pots.  How deep do these guys go?  Are they persnickety when it comes to repotting?

They're not super fussy, but they do root deep. Instead of making a rootball, the roots dive straight down and make kind of a root mat on the bottom of the pot before exiting.

      I've had this Dypsis psammophila in the ground for several years now and its setting seed for the first time. Psammophila's have been tricky for me in the past but for some reason this one grows great. One of my prettiest palms in my garden.

    • D. leptocheilos question
      By topwater
      I've accumulated a few seedlings over the web all sold to me as Dypsis leptocheilos.  About half have heels, the other half don't. Riffle says it's a tillering palm, Palmpedia says it may or may not have a heel.  I find it hard to believe that within one species, the palm may or may not tiller, intuitively it seems like a yes or no thing.  Dypsis in general is not a great fit for my zone 9 TX climate so I don't know much about them. What do you D. lepto growers think?
