Variegated Travelers Palm, Ravenala madagascariensis 'variegata'

Recommended Posts

SurfCityPalms

EXTREMELY RARE Variegated Travelers Palm. The tree is currently in a 5 gallon pot and stands about 4 feet tall.

I have been collecting variegated palms for years and this is the only variegated Ravenala madagascariensis I have ever seen. This is a great collection piece and has white/cream variegation on every leaf. The variegation continues down the stem of its leaves which also open variegated (the variegation does not need to fade in).

The tree has been in my personal collection but I unfortunately need to sell off a few plants to pay for some home repairs, which is the only reason I am considering selling it.

Pricing this tree is tough due to it's "one in a billion" (or more) rarity so I am accepting offers. All reasonable offers will be replied to (a couple hundred dollars is not reasonable offer).

I am in Southern California and am willing to ship anywhere.

PM me or email me directly (directly may get a faster response but ill try to be quick with PMs)

That is amazing! Definitely a rare gem. Someone snatch it up, as these are seldomly seen available.

Thanks for sharing/offering Jerod!

Hey Everyone,

Lots of questions have come up about this guy so I figured I would clear up the mystery. I am looking for $800 (reasonable offers will be responded to)

Thanks for looking,

Well, here is an update/bump to this thread.  

I ended up acquiring this beautiful plant from Jerod back in late 2014.  Being a HUGE variegated plant lover/collector, this was a must have.  


I had just moved into a new home about 12 months earlier here in Santa Barbara,  and knew that this one needed some special care. It was SO rare.  I ended up growing it to about 5’ tall in the 5g pot, in my newly built greenhouse! 

Unfortunately, it started to loose its variegation! I was saddened at the time, but it was still a healthy nice plant.  A thought popped into my head “don’t throw it away because it’s turning green, just plant it.  This was variegated, and travelers palms send out new pups, so there is a very small chance, the variegation may return one day.  JUST PLANT IT!”  And so I did.  
 

I planted it I full sun, straight from the greenhouse.  Thought it would burn, but it didn’t. Thought it may die, as Santa Barbara is borderline zone pushing for this plant.  But hey, what the heck. 
 

Ok so here is the update, some 7 years later!  It is flowering for the first time, and the new pup is growing strong, and even better than the original plant!
