Giuseppe,

Not having one would be slower yet.....

Hi John, repeat after me.. 'Trachycarpus ukhrulensis'... formerly 'manipur'. (NO, I don't know how to pronounce it!) :lol:

I can't even type it.....I assume that this is the new approved Dransfield name?

We have a couple of mani/naga/ukh's, and they're too slow for us too.

however if one was planted for me as a present when I was born, then that would have been nice.

hey that just gave me an idea, I'll give them to the next grandchildren.

I have a couple of these and decided to put this 2 gallon plant in the ground. It seems to be doing well, looks like it digs the cool weather, but has been ok in the heat so far.

I have a few Manipurs. They have been quite slow even in the ground but tolerate frost and drought quite well. One think I noticed is the pointy hastula. Not very silver undersides so far. The leaves feel papery thin despite grown in full sun.

Soro, are you 100% sure that is a Mainpur?

The reason why I ask is that I am by process of elimination trying to ID my mystery Trachy.

So far the indications are that it may be a Takil but I cant rule out that it may also be Manipur or Oreophilus.

My mystery Trachy does not look like the one in your photos though.

Regards Andy.
