Chamaerops humilis var 'Vulcano'

Recommended Posts

ghar41

I haven't heard much about it lately, and I'm considering putting a couple in the ground sometime. I like the ones that ive seen that are dwarfed and spineless with a softer appearance on the leaves. Can anyone share pics or information on plants they are growing?

Is anyone selling C. vulcano in the USA? I haven't heard of any yet. I had a seedling but it got cooked in a summer heat wave.

Hi,

I'm growing Chamaerops humilis and the varieties cerifera and vulcano for years without any problems over here. The winter before last one was hard but last winter was even colder with the snow, and that was the first time I saw damage on my Chamaerops palms. The vulcano lost his spear and give it a treath, let's hope it will recover but they are good recovers have I heard from other people living over here.

Here it was last summer, lovely palms and in "normal" winters like I used to palms without any problems over here.

I spy spines on your petioles, not nearly like the miniture "Shark Teeth" found on the tradition Chamaerops humilis though. biggrin.gif

Somewhere in the next week between Tuesday and Friday I will get some more for selling with my business. When they are arrived I will also take a few detail pictures from the leafes and petioles.

This thread reminds me of the time Scott Zona asked me what an example of one of my favorite palms was. I told him that Chamaerops humilis var. Vulcano was high on the list. I was able to get ahold of one about 3 years ago, and it is still loving it. It does not like overhead water, and can get small leaf syndrome from this. Here is a picture of mine today, flowering! It has small spines, I don't know if there is a spiny and spineless form, but what I have shows all the other traits of this variation.

Happy Easter to all!!

Here you can see a nice " variation" ( probably a hybrid) of Vulcano,( I have shared seeds of this beauty with many of you)

and a new selected variation called

"Etna star", that should be on the market soon.

Max,do you know more about etna star.

When vulcano seeds are planted, around 40% are vulcanos and the others are different, can these other 60% be the etna stars or is it something completely different.

Incidentally, where I live in the UK all chamaerops are totally defoliated this winter, vulcano or otherwise at -12C.

Ciao Nigel !!

All I know ,about "Etna star" is in the photo!! Some others pics ( that I can't find actually) show that this palm have a "real blue" color, and a beautiful shape. How it could be cold tollerant, I don't know actually

Try to ask James for more info

For sure is a must have palm!!

Have a great Easter M@x

My Chamaerops sp vulcano seeds arrived 3 days ago, so it was so good to see all the photos. I had only seen one small photo of it before. Now I have to hope some of the seeds germinate for me so I can grow these lovely little palms because I know for certain that they won't be on sale anywhere around here for a long time.

Dear Brother M@x :)

Its been a long time we all heard from you in this forum...And here are some stills of the Vulcano hybrid that you sent me...They are growing fine hope they can survive our hot wet humid tropical climate when planted in the ground.

Hi Jay,

I bought mine from Rare Palm Seeds. You can check their website to see if they have any left for sale.

Here's my Vulcano - the crown is still not entirely full - following being transplanted approx 2.5 years ago. The spines are not altogether absent but are fewer in number and tiny compared to the standard C Humilis. Mine has also proved to be much slower growing than my standard C Humilis but far prettier in my opinion.

Cheers Jeff

This morning I took photos of a Chamaerops that was given to me by a fellow PalmTalker in 2008 as a 1-leaf seedling. It is supposedly a var. vulcano but when I posted photos of it last spring on EPS member consensus was that it was not a vulcano but a "regular" Chamaerops because the fronds were too long. After reading this post I see why that may be the case, as apparently only a % of vulcano seeds come up true. No matter, because I like this palm a lot. It is vivid green, tough and just laughed at my wretched winter. And now it is cheerfully growing in spring sunshine. In some of my photos you can see a regular Chamaerops seedling I germinated from seed last spring.

What do y'all think?

Chamerops humilis (var. vulcano?)

Thanks, Rafael. I really would like to try a true vulcano but they just aren't available. Seeds from RPS cost 17+ euros for 10, a lot of money for me, esp. considering they may not germinate true. Maybe someday.

I too just started some seeds from RPS. I hope I am able to germinate them and have them at sales as seedlings at least. I loved seeing all of the pix of the Vulcano. I am loving it.

I am so hoping I can get some of my vulcano seeds to germinate. Even though several species of seeds bought from RPS in the last 8 months have done nothing at all, I just had to take the risk and pay the money for a chance at growing some of these lovely palms. Meg I know what you mean, sometimes the higher priced seeds arent worth the risk involved, more so when on a limited income. I guess if we are meant to get one it will happen.

Same palm, about 10 years later. Leaves are still very small, top of palm is very crowded and the petioles are very broad and almost spineless!

Meg, did you get some seeds or seedlings, meanwhile?
