Hello, my friends. Does anybody have a comprehensive list of Chamaedorea hybrids? I know that something like this has been published in Don Hodel's 1992 book. Do you have this list with an update?
Germinating Dypsis baronii and onilahensis "droopy" seeds
Howdy, and happy new year.
Seems like I rot my Dypsis seeds, thoughts on how to germinate?
Thanks a heap for suggestions!
Syagrus x Jubea & Butia x Lytocarium
Does anyone have these two hybrids and can you show pics? Thanks (not Jubea x Syagrus)
Livistona nitida trunk
This palm was tucked back into the corner of my yard behind my large S. causiarum and never got the glory it should have received. It is a really cold hardy and pretty palm. I wish I had several more planted but just didn't realize how nice they are until owning this one. Anyway here is a closeup of the trunk., its got a redish color and the fronds self clean nicely.
Sabal causarium or something else?
Made an interesting observation this week. I have three supposed Sabal causarium planted out right now...two from one source (2nd year in the ground), and a small one (about 3 gallon) planted early this spring that I got from someone else.
We've hit about 25-26F a few times so far this winter, and the small one is 100% burned already (what a wimp!). The other two show no damage, and took low teens last winter with light damage (this is consistent with the species when mature, so I am told). So the 3rd palm is obviously different from the first two. I suspect it will survive the winter since the growth point is well underground.
So - any guesses?
- The small palm is incorrectly identified and is actually a more cold tender species (but what)?
- The small palm is correct, but the larger two aren't (maybe causarium x palmetto)?
- They're all causarium, but the species varies greatly in cold hardiness?
Attempting to identify them from photos at this size would be a futile effort.
