Pogo,

How much sun does yours get? I have a large 15g in a pot that im thinking of putting in 3/4 day sun. Right now in the pot it gets about 1/4 to 1/2 day sun and accclimated well.

Nick, mine is in full sun all day and each leaf gets more "aqua" and less burn/bleach out. I'm thinking the acclimation is about the same as a macrocarpa. By the 4th leaf, you're pretty well good to go. Bob and Braden thought mine looked pretty good on Sat.

Chambeyronia houailou looks a lot like hookeri when larger. I do not see to much difference. I have a larger hookeri that I will have to post a picture of when I return to Hawaii and you all can judge the differences if any.

One of the differences may be the cold hardiness the Chambeyronia houailou seems to take the cold better than the hookeri.

As far as being a beautiful palm I think that Chambeyronia rivals some of the best looking palms out there, of course this is my opinion.

Jerry is this a hybrid or does it naturally occur? Where did the name come from?

Dean,

Adults are better than juveniles, with a compact crown of stiff, arching leaves and lots of yellow (sorry... "golden" hues.

I can guess that adult traits are defined once a specimen starts fruiting. Maybe Bo's specimens are growing among trees and they don't build arching leaves because they are still looking for light, coming from above.

Can anybody post a picture of a large one?

Are there any old plants at FTBG or Montgomery?

Here are some pics from a site everyone here knows(I know, shame on me)they are adults in NC, I believe, in full-sun. You can definitely see the a compact crown of stiff, arching leaves and lots of yellow.

So they do occur naturally, the name sounds Hawiian to me, I thought it was a cross from Hawaii.

Nick yours looks good. I see you have the same issue they all do until quite large. At least in so cal, it takes a good 3 years to "root out" or not be wobbly.

I took my ties off a couple months ago, but still have rocks propped up there. This is my only planted one and its been there just over 1 1/2 years.

same here Bill

It does not last to long unfortunately. It seems the smaller the palm the more pronounced the color. As mine goes up in age its loosing the cotton candy pink coloration :(

Hi !

Would you have some Chambeyronia houailou seeds to sell ? Or maybe you know somebody who does ...

Best regards.

This is my Chambeyronia houailou in Hawaii. I have two others planted in Calif. one in San Clemente and the other at my Fallbrook nursery.

Anyone else growing these? Post your pictures.

Jerry,

I have your houailou from your Fallbrook nursery.  The fronds were very long when I got it from you.  They have shrunk substantially since.  Here is a pic of it’s last new leaf:
