Flowering Butia Matogrossensis

7 posts in this topic

I purchased these seeds as Syagrus cerqueirana, but......well, I'm pretty sure they're Butia matogrossensis. Pretty quick to get to seed. This is like four or five years old.

There are actually three plants in the frame. It's just this front one that is dominant.

Very nice! The trunk looks more like butia than Syagrus I think. Interesting to see what the seeds look like.

    • Sabal minor Chipola Dwarf: another super dwarf Sabal
      By PalmatierMeg
      Last week I received seedlings from yet another super dwarf Sabal minor. This one is Chipola Dwarf from Marianna in NW FL. One of my seedlings is starting to go palmate. This palm is a bit larger than the better known Bountstown Dwarf and Wakulla Dwarf. It is a bit larger than those two palms (18" high x 30" wide). Adults can reach 5' high x 2' wide. All three dwarfs can be found within 50-75 miles of Tallahassee and SE, SW and NW of it. I've been looking for this one for quite a while without success. I moved them into 2g pots. Right now they don't look particularly distinctive but I look forward to growing them. These tiny Sabal minor dwarfs have promise for cold winter climates and can be easily protected. I know of someone in the Midwest who grows Blountstown in a pot and had them seed successfully. Very cool little palms that should be more easily available. However, tiny palms don't produce bumper crops of seeds. My largest Blountstown has not produced even 100 seeds in a crop. This year, probably because of our severe drought, it has not flowered at all. Enjoy.

    • Seeds?
      By GregVirginia7
      I think these are seeds...I was able to pollinate last month from what I thought was inflorescence on another Needle in a different part of the yard as this one was flowering at the same time...just want to confirm...this is a first for me...
    • Sabal palmetto Lisa Flowers for the First Time!
      By PalmatierMeg
      About six weeks ago I got a most unexpected surprise: my largest Sabal palmetto Lisa is flowering and setting fruit for the first time. I got it as a most generous gift from a fellow PT-er in 2008 as a 1-2 strap leaf seedling. It's been growing in my Caribbean front garden since 2009. Even a few months ago I was assured it would need 5+' of trunk before it would flower so I resigned myself to a further 4-5' year wait. I guess my palm had other ideas. So, I know some palms don't produce fertile seeds on their first bloom. Are Sabals among those or made of hardier stuff? Anyway, today I took the following photos before storms moved in.

    • Some questions
      By Sanips
      Hi guys, I wonder if you could help me about some worries and questions I have about certain palms I own.
      First, I've a butyagrus, a JxB F2 and a Livistona nitida which their newest leaf are very yellowish. I wonder If it's normal or it's caused by some short of defficency (iron perhaps?) or overfertilizing them (I use Palm Focus once a week or every 15 days and I always give them the amount recomended (5ml per litre). I leave you some pics about them. The 3 first ones are the butyagrus, the next 3 are from my JxB F2 and the last 2 are the L. nitida.








      The second question is about my Sabal uresana. is It alright? I leave some photos. Don you think is too layed? is the soil level too low?



      Thank you guy in advance.
    • Sad Truth About Juania australis.....Maybe
      By Xerarch
      So, Juania australis is one of those super rare palms that many a collector would like to have, it's even cold hardy, although not heat tolerant. But that isn't the biggest problem with it, here goes...sigh....it isn't that awesome! Every photo I see of it, it seems, so.....lackluster. Seriously, it doesn't look that cool in all the photos, that is, until the most recent publication of Palms from the IPS. There actually some pretty sweet specimens this time, and the leaf scars are actually pretty widely spaced, so maybe it's isn't always such a slow grower? At least after it gets some size?
      Anyway I'll never have one because of the rareity and cultural requirements, but my opinion of this palm has improved after seeing some nicer specimens in habitat on its native Robinson Crusoe island.  Wonder if anyone else has a similar opinion.
