Two of mine are knee high. Gary, yours is gorgeous. Was it vigorous from the start or did it take a while to get moving?

I saw this in a number of gardens in the Hilo area earlier this year. It was without a doubt the most consistently impressive Dypsis I saw.

it was always a slow but steady grower, but you can definately see it pick up steam each year.

Best in full sun?

I've never been able to get them to grow. Do they have special requirements?

Nice!!!!!  Mine are doing well, but I think they're just slowing down due to lack of full sun

The base of this palm is actually bigger than it looks.

Mohsen, its on the north side of Gary's house which means it gets less winter dry sun. Really only summer sun which has a bit more humidity. I would think your sunlight allowance is relative to your average humidity. More humidity allows more sun.

Mohsen,

I planted out one twice that size as the one in your picture and its starting to burn in 1/2 winter sun. It will probably take a couple years for it to fully acclimate with our dry conditions. This palm is very pale in color and is susceptible to burning in the sun even at a large size when planted. they take some time yet to fully acclimate. out side of the tropics they also seem to brown tip a lot. :(

Thanks Josh and Bill

i thought the summer blazing full sun than Winter full sun?

BTW, do you consider Carlsmitii more sensitive to full sun compare to Dypsis.Lepto and Foxtails? I have them both in full sun and they seem OK ( so far)...

It won't have a problem in the sun Mohsen....... it's been growing unprotected for 2 years. Much tougher than leptocheilos

I'm interested to know if yours ever went in the ground, and if so, how it's going now Jeff.

My best and fastest big boy palms. Once it gets to 25 gallon size it really takes off especially in full Honolulu sun and lots of daily water. A bit on the slow side when young. Mine seeded with less than a foot of fat trunk.

Agree Matt......slow and as a matter of fact it was so slow I removed it and gave the palm away.

I’ve got two in the ground up here in the Bay Area that I planted three years ago and I get two new leaves in the summer on each and not much else. I’m patient though as the larger of the two (almost 3 feet tall) is showing signs of speeding up as it’s putting out a new leaf in winter, something it hasn’t done before.

Are these as slow as CIDP/B.alfredii? Or J. Chinensis?

I have 4 seedlings from Floribunda. I think it was late November/early December of last year when they arrived.
