C. adscendens for A. vestiaria (seed trade)
Looking to trade a few fresh Chamaedorea adscendens seed for a few Areca vestiaria seed. Anyone interested?
Areca vestiaria at the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C.
A few pictures of a potted Areca vestiaria at the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C. These are from 2013, so not sure whether they are still there. Gotta love these!
Northern California: Areca vestiaria in unheated sunroom
I got this Areca vestiaria years ago as a germinated seed from RPS. It's the only one of a group that's thrived. It's always been indoors in a room that only gets morning light/heat (i.e., my sunroom faces east). Some of the offshoots from the main stem declined and I've had to spray for scale now and then, but otherwise it's done OK under a relatively low-humidity, shady, highly variable temperature regime. It's my suspicion, beyond mere acclimation, that success with certain palm genera under less than ideal [challenging?] growing conditions may be dependent on the specific genetics of an individual palm.
