That's a real nice Loxococcus!

Here are a few more. First, Clinostigma exorrhizum:

Dypsis prestoniana. A number of different looking Dypsis have been sold under the prestoniana name. Any ideas if this is the "real" thing?

Hyophorbe verschaffeltii, Sept 9 2006. Perhaps the same that I posted above. This is my favorite part, where one sees a mix of leaf types: bifid, and pinnate.

The ones on the far left are Adonidia merrilli, and two Areca catechu from PR.

And, finally (for now anyway!), Pinanga coronata. I can't take credit for germinating these... They are all volunteers underneath the parent. Too bad I can't use them as ground cover!

And if you want the REALLY SMALL stuff, two Dypsis scottiana (left and front), and a Dypsis sanctaemariae (April 12, 2006). Today only the D. sanctaemariae survives and is pushing its 7th leaf.

Bo, those D. lastelliana look far better than mine! Any pointers?

Frank,

Not sure what the lastelliana problem could be. Despite that all of mine are only on their first leaf right now, they all seem to be fairly robust, and I've found them real easy.

Here's another one I can't take credit for. The "big" palm is a Phoenicophorium borsigianum, but ALL the seedlings are Verschaffeltia splendida. They are "volunteer" seedlings from the mature parent, about 5 ft away. There are a few on the ground, all the way at the bottom of the photo, but what's interesting is that there are THREE Verschaffeltia seedlings that have actually germinated ON the P. borsigianum, in the crack where a frond meets the trunk/stem. There's one at the lower part of the photo (the best looking one! It's in the center, just above the ones on the ground), then there's one in the upper right part of the photo and the third one in the upper left.

A few more Dypsis. Here's a Dypsis decipiens

And two Dypsis mysteries. First a Dypsis sp. hankona. I thought someone said this might actually be D. decipiens, but that's certainly not what it looks like to me. Unless I got my seedlings mixed up...

And Dypsis sp. betefaka. This one has a little bit more of the 'decipiens look' I think, just skinnier.

And a Dypsis nauseosa that's in the process of pushing out a new frond.

And another, somewhat larger, Dypsis nauseosa, this one pushing a pink new frond. What I find interesting about this palm is that up until about the time it begins to form a trunk each new frond is considerably longer than the previous frond, giving the palm an interesting, and somewhat lopsided, look.

Bo,

   Your D. prestoniana looks just like what we grow over here in South Florida. Can't wait to see these get bigger.

Frank- That gives me hope. I have one remaining Gileno botry and its germinated but no leaf emergence yet. Its inside  and in a 10 gallon aquarium with a glass top and a fluorescent lamp for light. Hopefully it will live.

Great pics everyone. I am enjoying seeing some really rare seedlings here.

Here's one of my favorites; Lemurophoenix halleuxii. Well, actually four of them, showing the progression from the first emerging spike to a two lead seedling.

Hi,

Very nice plants!

I´ve been delighted by so many photos of healthy and beautiful seedlings.

This one is my first photo, but I could not resist...

In the picture you can see a mixture of some of my seedlings. It is a mixing of temperate plants  and tropical ones.

Tropical: Clinostigma samoense, Phoenicophorium borsigianum, Verschaffeltia splendida, Aiphanes aculeata, Carpoxylon macrospermum and Chryosophila albida.

Temperate: Parajubaea t. torallyi, Parajubaea t. microcarpa, Rhopalostylis sapida, Rapidophyllum hystrix and Trachycarpus wagnerianus.

Regards,

Carlos Simón

Nice seedlings, Bo, and Carlos.

Hey Bo, I noticed you surround the seedling with little pellets, are those some kind of fertilizer, or perlite? I've been avoiding fertilizing the little ones since I'm afraid they may burn.

That's Nutricote (13-13-13 plus micros), 180 day time release. Causes no burn.

Hi,

Thank you Trópico and BigFrond.

Talking about seedlings... Few days ago I transplanted some Salacca seedlings: S. Zalacca and S. Wallichiana:

Then I remembered I had a few Salacca  seeds in my table ( I´ve received them as "Banana Snakefruit " ). They were in a humid tissue paper into a very

small plastic bag. I received them two months ago but I  forgot them at all:

I was very surprised to discover they were all sprouted and in perfect shape

Fresh seeds are fresh seeds :)

Carlos

Zac,

a few more for you to practice on... :)

Bo-Göran

First one is the Dypsis that's been sold under the ambositrae name. I assume this is the one referred to as 'fine leaf'. And both of these seedlings came from the same seed batch.
