HEY MIKEY!! Nice to see you on the boards again.

Here's a photo of a Joey seedling I have that suddenly started pushing out split leaves. They've been doing so for the last 2 or 3 leaves they's put out

post-1017-12813080818988_thumb.jpg

Not sure of its a hybrid or a "split leaf form"-- you're the expert-- what do you think

Here's another shot -- closer look at the splitting leaves.

post-1017-12813083114682_thumb.jpg

THese are the 2 that suddenly developed split leaves. These are the newer leaves on these palms so they are still appropriate for this threadbiggrin.gif

Jeff in Costa Rica -I like your selection of palms. Gorgeous color on the Metroxylon. I only have M.vitiense only comes out green. Is that unknown Chamaedorea Sp. endemic to Costa Rica?

Gene, I'm not sure about the Chamaedorea. It was given to me by Dewayne Richardson. I need to ask him the next time I talk to him.

Gileno- You have enough palms to start a full blown nursery!

How big is the Dypsis pinnatifrons? It looks like it already has fully developed mature looking leaves. Mine are still in the skinny leaf stage and the leaves are still green when they come out. They are suppose to be red when they emerge right?

Hi Gene,

The Dypsis is + - 3 meters tall. It's still in a big pot and it seems ready to flower this coming summer. I guess this palm is 6 years old from seed. The new emerging frond is always pinkish/brownish but is quickly turns into green. Your Licualas are fantastic. Please post some more of these updated pictures.

Actinokentia divaricata taken last night.

Taken this morning. This does not happen often as this is a slow palm.

This topic has been full of beautiful photos. I'm dying to contribute but nearly all my palms are in a spear growth phase. The closest to meet the eligibility of this topic is my golden coconut - pictured below - it took four weeks to grow from an inch long spear to this size.

Daryl - That's a really bright shade of red on the Kentiopsis.

Palmisland - Great color on the D. Pinnatifrons too.

Talking about red emerging leaves--do you guys notice any environmental factors that affect the color? I have some red leaf palms that sometimes open with really bright red, sometimes really deep red and at other times it's more on the brown side. I haven't really observed my palms over several seasons but I get the impression that my new leaves are redder when the temperature is cool and more brown during the hotter months.

What have you observed with your palms?

Do you think so? I think it is more to the individual palms.... I have different chambeyronia having different colour 'red' leaves...

Gene, I've found that in general the leaves on all of my plants get redder each time, so the older the plant, the redder the new leaf. Especially Chamby 'hookeri' and Dypsis fibrosa/crinita. This Kentiopsis also gets redder the older it grows. The one thing I notice is that in the winter months when growth is slower, they stay red for a lot longer. And if in shade, even longer. One of my hookeri leaves took 6 weeks to lose its red colour recently.

regards,

Daryl

If they get redder as they grow older -- that's a good thing. I was worried that some might be "genetically brown emergent" or that I'd only get to enjoy those blood red leaves on certain times of the year.

Concidentally-- This is what I found in the garden this morning

Chambeyronia Macrocarpa

Wow that's a pretty incredible sight!! I can't wait for my chambeys to get that size. I probably have 6 more years to go.

Here's one that's butter sweet. During a storm about a month ago the huge and perfectly formed leaves of this Licuala sumawongii were totally demolished. Well today a new leaf is atarting to to open.

Stong wind and I guess different direction -- must have been a direct hit. In the previous years we've had even stronger storms but this palms was left unscathed each time.

Beautiful stuff everyone!

Gene, I've noticed around here my "red" is directly proportional to the humidity. (But then again if you are never below 50% you would probably never know.)

Ari, looks like a Kentiopsis pyriformis.

Ari, its hard to tell for sure due to the pic, but if it has a heel, its pyriformis.

No heel would be a piersoniorum...but then I'd just have to cry... :crying:

I will check it out... I can't remember seeing a heel.... why do you have to cry? Did you lost yours recently?

Regards, Ari :)

p.s. I just checked it... It has a heel, so you don't have to cry...
