Trachycarpus wagnerianus (fem) X T. nanus (masc)

Recommended Posts

Jost

I know from Martin Gibbons about the reverse hybrid Trachycarpus nanus (fem) X T. wagnerianus (masc)

it is easy to dust a Trachycarpus nanus . I have about 50 this way.

dusting a T.wagnerianus (fem) is not easy because of a genetic defect of the wagnerianus bloom.

7 years ago I was successful in dusting a waggie with nanus pollen!

Sorry , I have one plant only.

Who will try it again ?

Hello Jost,

Two years ago I pollinated my female Waggie with fresh Nanus pollen.

The result was 120 seeds, of which only five germinated.

To be sure that they they are the Nanus cross, I have to wait and see how the leaves look like.

Last year I did the same with the Waggy and a Fortunei, used pollen out of the fridge from a year before.

The Fortunei gave 65 seeds of which 35 are already germinating.

This time the Waggy aborted the seeds after three month's, probable because there where not enough seeds on the palm to keep it going.(+/-25 seeds only, by the lack of pollen).

I like to try again next year, this year my female Fortunei and Waggy gave no flower stalks.

It is for me difficult to get pollen of Nanus, I have no mature plant, could you help me out next year Jost?

This to find out if the theory concerning the genetic defect on the female Waggy flower is right.

Kindly Regards Ad

Hi Ad ,

thanks for being interested in breeding trachycarpus species.

I have 2 adult masc. T.nanus and in a year or two some more

nanus , I hope so . Additional I try to buy some more adult masc.

nanus. Keep an eye on your 5 hybrids . We shall help us one another

next year ....if enough pollen is available.

Take care ,

Jost

PS. I am near the dutch border . I live in Tecklenburg

T. wagnerianus X T. princeps would be very interesting. It would be nice to get the leaves of waggy with the white undersides of princeps. Maybe there will be mature princeps in the next few years.

Hello Jost,

I live in Hoorn in the north-west of the Netherlands, this is about 270 km from your place.

So still quite a distance.

As soon as the seedlings show interesting features I will post a photo.

I got a few seedlings of NanusXWinsan from Garry, I have never seen a Trachycarpus seedling growing so fast.

I will post a photo later in the summer,

Kindly Regards Ad

Dear Jost,

WaggyXNanus first divided leaf is coming.( first photo left)

Not sure that it is the real thing yet.

Have to be patient and wait for more growth.

All these seedlings germinated around March 2012.

The NanusXWinsan is growing very fast!

FortuneiXNanus seedlings are from this year.

Regards Ad

Ad,

The Nanus X Winsan look fabulous, The once I have are much smaller than yours.

Winsan is a fast grower and a hybrid with winsan much more faster than the normal Winsan.

Hi Aldert ,

thanks for the hybrid pics. the hybrids look very healthy and the shape is much more better than the species Nanus .

here is my Update 15.07.13 from my 7/8 year old w X n .

I hope it will develop a small trunk

Update on the WaggyXNanus.

It seems to be the real thing, leaves are increasing and look like Nanus.

How about yours Jost, post a recent picture please.

Naggy compared to Wagnus.

Leaves are smaller, flower stalks more tiny.

      Hello PalmTalk!
      There is going to be a short introduction first.
      My name is Yahor though I prefer you call me by my username and I am from Staten Island, a borough of NYC.
      I don't feel comfy telling people my age, but I am 12-16 years old.
      I first got my interest in palms when visiting Jacksonville Florida last year.
      I want to start growing them.
      So the reason I am making this post is something that has caught my eye for a while.  According to Wikipedia, on the page about NYC's climate, the climate data graphs and classifications section show that  areas of NYC might be in zone 8a.
      LaGuardia has 11 F (-12 C) as the minimum for January.
      Belvedere Castle in Central Park  has 9.8 F (-12.3 C) as the minimum.
      JFK has 10 F (-12) as the minimum.
      Sorry if the pictures look bad
      I find the emotes on the forum funny

      Looks like that “dip in the jet stream” is coming our way...so far I see two days/nights sub-freezing with most nights into low 20’s F and some upper teens. I’m off tomorrow so I think I’ll do a little prep but not like past winters. As I said earlier, I want to grow cold hardy palms in normal NOVA winters without overdoing it on the protection. Anyway, the new Trachy F. will get well protected, as it should for a winter or two with an umbrella and a nice layer of burlap and frost cloth on its cage with lights on the ground around the trunk and up to the crown, just a matter of inches...but everything else is going to get protection lite. The established Trachy will get some lights up the trunk (for looks) and on the crown. Same for the Brazoria. However, the Brazoria will get an umbrella over the crown, anchored with a shepherd’s hook and a blanket of lights on the ground, though a heavy rain will turn into a river around the Brazoria so I may have to improvise a bit. The Medi gets minimal as well. Sounds like a lot but compared to past winters, it’s definitely a pullback.
      Will send after pictures tomorrow...
      New little Trachy will get babied but that’s necessary:

      Established Trachy and Brazoria get some lights and the Blue B gets an umbrella...


      The Medi is ready...it has a blanket of lights on the ground but I may use cover if I have to...will wait for a forecast in the mid teens...this is the palm that is going to be most tested...

      These guys laugh every time I do this...no protection here...


      Honestly, the Needles, McCurtain and Sabal minors give real meaning to the term cold hardy...they truly are great palms for this NOVA climate.

      I love PalmTalk! But not gonna lie, I sometimes have trouble finding a space to post certain things I have going on. Probably need to start a blog, but eh nah lol, we’ll go with this!

      Pretty sure this is squirrel damage...

      I noticed several fronds drooping and thought it a natural shed and this was part of the process, but the “ shed” was painfully asymmetrical. Upon closer inspection, I found this! It gnawed the underside of the petiole, thus causing the collapse.

      Tell you what, squirrel pot pie sounds great about now. The symmetry of my palm is being ruined. It hasn’t hit the upper third...yet but I’m sending out a dinner alert for all those red tailed hawks that are visiting for the winter. Honestly, of all the things that could happen...mulling splint supports...maybe a baffle (which should really add to the beauty of my palm) any other suggestions?

      I see some people say Dypsis Lucentes usda zone 10 and up.I disasagree with that at least here in Florida.
      In St Augustine by Aligator farm entrance you can see many of them.I talked to the zoo and they told me they planted them maybe 15 yrs ago as 5-7 gallons by now they are tall maybe 12 feet or more.You can see them from A1A. But also you see some in downtown around the belive or not.This is usda zone 9a .But if this is not enough,I live in Jacksonville at oceanway which is east of 95 ,we have on Pulaski rd zip code 32218 by church for minimum 10 yrs  about 10 -12 feet tall. planted right by entrance the wall.  And if this is still not enough at Jacksonville Airport at Hilton has at pool backside of the building w/o any protection beside it planted right by the building.So I think if you place it on sunny side and close to building it can tolarete all the way to Jacksonville. I don’t have any idea about 8b zone like west of Nort Florida or Ga …Also I know a person listed close to Jacksonville airport she planted a Dypsis decaying “ triangle palm “ back in 1990 right by her house.It’s made it eversince and it’s way taller than her house.She protected at beginning heat pad etc .She has some photo at palmtalk . I have 2 of them I never heated them ,but covered however I can’t cover anymore they are out of reach .Over 12 feet or so.I got them from Home Depot 3 or 4 years ago.Even leaves get touched they come back nicely.Mine not planted by house but by fence and it get early sun till late afternoon sun…
