Looking for the real D. ambositrae

Recommended Posts

Jeff Searle

Greg,

     Your pic.#1 is for sure the Dypsis sp. Fine Leaf.

     Your pic. #2 looks like a small D. ambositrae,I agree.

     Your pic. #3 is not D. ambositrae, for sure. I'm not sure what it is. It looks like 3 or 4 different species, just don't know which one.

Steve,

 By looking at the amount of pictures you just posted, do you think we can tell that your excited about your palm?? :D  I can't believe for one reason why your palm is not anything BUT Dypsis ambositrae. You should be very proud to have this palm doing so well for you!  Extreamly nice!!! Thanks for the pictures.

Jeff

Jeff, could you please re-post the photo of the true D. ambositrae in habitat, thanks, Ed

On August 3 the South Florida Palm Society had a meeting. :D Pete Balasky very generously donated some very rare palms for the auction which he had wild collected. :yay: One was a Dypsis ambositrae which yours truly was the winning bidder. I will not tell you what the winning bid was because it would make you ill :sick: . There was alot of palms donated for this meeting and most attendees walked away with some outstanding deals. :greenthumb:

Here is a couple photos of the Dypsis ambositrae:I think I will wait until next spring to put in the ground.

Mines approaching a 1 inch diameter stem, looks like that stem is nearly 2 inches? Ed

Ed - my stem is about 1.5 inches in diameter (3.5 cm). Including the heel, 2.5 inches (7.0 cm). The emerging petiole is very colorful (colourful) this morning. :drool:

Ron. :)

I just received mine also, the new leaf was just finishing opening, so I haven't seen it push a new spear yet, but the rest is very red like that, shouldn't be long, Ed

Been researching Dypsis arenarum and Dypsis kindro and came across this thread. Love the pics in posts 104 and 124.
