I have a gigantic, potted Zamia picta/variegata with extreme variegation that I got from Christian Faulkner as a tiny seedling 9-10 years ago. This species of Zamia is the only naturally variegated one. It is now an adult female taller than I am that produced seeds earlier this year. I assumed the seeds were infertile but did not notice that I had a male potted Zamia hybrid (loddigesii? x ??) sitting right next to it that I'd bought at a Palm Beach sale some years back. Lo, about a month ago I noticed that tiny variegated Zamia seedlings were popping up next to my mother cycad. I potted up 8 of them to find a new home and am selling them as a lot. See summary below

This little guy is growing slowly but surely. The spear in the middle is starting to make itself more prominent.
I planted this hybrid Coccothrinax in February 2018 and everything looked normal. There was a small plant in the pot with it which was from a second seedling of the same plant, so i was getting 2 for 1 I thought. Well fast forward and the main plant kept leaning to the side. Attempts to straighten it were unsuccessful because it was solid, not flopping over. I thought I was going to lose the plant, and finally decided to prop it on a decorative rock once it was essentially horizontal. I finally can see what was making it lean to the side, it was growing a doinker which was pushing it the main trunk off to the side. It's very strange. I ended up looking up to see what species of Coccothrinax clump and see that pumila and fageldei are thought to clump. The plant was thought to be a hybrid of Coccothrinax borhidiana with another unknown species. While I've seen plenty of doinkers on Dypsis species, this was a new one on me. Anyone else seen anything like this with a Coccothrinax?
I figured I would start a new topic giving an update on some of my palms and other things growing in a Virginia garden. Now that I've had a little more free time, I've been catching up on quite a bit of weeding and such. It's still a work in progress. Hopefully, I can get the photos to load. Ever since getting a different phone I've had some difficulties uploading photos, so trying the computer.
So we bought this hybrid about 10 years ago as a JuBu. Seemed more BuJu in form, but didn't think much of it. It's still regrowing its crown. Hasn't flowered in two years. I was looking at it today and realized a few special things:
1. It survived 8F unprotected.
2. This palm sets viable seeds all on its own. Yep folks, self fertile viable seeds. There's not a mature Butia for miles.
