C plumosa experienced probably around 27-28 with no immediate visible damage. I covered it on colder nights (23-5 min.) with a light & still no visible damage

27F for 5 hours did this:

C arenbergiana- killed it outright without any mercy

C oblongata- defoliated

C radicalis- nothing

C elegans (6 diff plants)- one burned a bit, other OK each 3' tall

C hoooperiana- fried most of the leaves pretty badly

C stolonifera- possibly dead, but not sure yet... has a lot of stems- all spikes pulled out

C oreophila- nothing

C cataractarum (slightly protected)- moderate damage to most leaves

C seifrizei- burnt to a crisp- probably dead

C glaucifolia- nothing

C ernesti augusti seedling (5" tall)- nothing

C woodsoniana seedling- burnt a tad

C adcendens, both slight protected by taller trees- nothing

C sartori imposter- slightly burned

C metallica 18" tall with some taller palms nearby, against house but no real overhead protection: killed

   2nd plant 3' tall under 'protection' from Italian Cypress trees (if you can call that protection) and a Ceroxylon, partially defoliated

Chamaedorea cataractarum

Was knocked to the ground on a night of 25F. There was a very heavy, very dense fog that night. Upon inspection the next morning I found an icy 'slush' covering it. Not a white frost, but nearly frozen slushy moisture. Other nights of 25 and 24 follewed later along with a few 32, 31, and 29. The cat palm is now sending up new growth.

2 nights 29F (not back to back) slight frost.

Cataractum - 2 plants in a protected spot under eve of the house. Some leaves darkened as if damaged. Will know in a few days.

Radicalis - 12" seedlings in pots. No damage.

Microspadix - A dozen planted here and there. No damage.

Radicalis - new spike shooting slowly

seifrizii - flowering forthe 1st time (yippee!)

oreophila - setting seed (very slowly) unknown if fertile

Of course, our lowest low so far is 41F

The only damage so far is that which I incur myself...

Both Cataractum doing fine under eve of house. 28F was as cold as we got this year with several other nights between 29-32F. Cat palm that was killed to the ground winter before last is doing fine. Radicalis and Microspadix are of course doing great.

My Radicalis tree form in the ground this start of winter got some damages to the leaves, we had a lot of snow first along 3-4 days with temps down to -7 -8 C (18 F) by night and 0 to -3 C (32-26 F) by day , after a week another big snow spell during 2-3 days and temps down to -2 C (28F).

I can see some little spot on the leaves, the plant seems still strong, up to now..

bye

After one night with a low of around 32F(only for about two hours) and a low of 28F the next night(below freezing for at least 8 hours), my C. Cataractarum isn't showing any visible damage. I'm not sure whether there was frost but it is planted under canopy so there most likely wasn't any.
