The seedling was half a year old in Dec 1986; it was potted only in cacti soil. Later I potted it into ca. 3/4 Seramis; BTW Seramis is burnt loam. — I tried to keep that palm by root pruning as long as possible as a small bonsai:

Very nice looking Brahea Pal,

BTW, I have noticed many of the pots has weeds or grass? Did you leave them like that on purpose? As I thought they might get water and other nutriotions from that plant ?

The weed was not a good idea; It served a bit as protection for the soil against our heavy rainfalls and thunderstorms we had.

It seems I am having my first sprout :)

I just put these Phoenix canariensis seeds in zip bag with wet paper towel and today I checked and as you see I can see some roots …

Please let me know, should I move them to pot right now or wait for the green shoot appears too ?

Great Job with the Hedyscepe seeds

Where did you get those from -can't think of anyone that has them in Australia.

Thanks Troy

I think I bought it from Ebay or collected from Royal Botanic Garden?

This is the only one survived, all been killed by mold :(

I would repot them now (or the smaller ones a bit later) in the L weddellianum mix, i.e. 2/3 fine pine bark + 1/3 Seramis + 1 cm LECA layer on the bottom. You don’t need a nano-greenhouse if you water them adequately and use that well draining soil mix.

Thanks Pal for the correction ...

BRW, Do you have experiences with them and are they good choice for keep in pot for a long time ?

No own experience, only with A catechu which was growing too fast too tall for indoors …

update on my Chamaedorea tepejilote - 13-6-2017 ( Got seeds from Steve when I visited his Garden)  @Palms4Steve

so far the seem very strong even when they were just sprout out of the seeds...

I am not sure if they can be kept to pot will the flowering stages and how fast growers are they?

Awesome success here!

 

I want to share something strange. I have seedling of three headed Adonidia merrillii and two headed Veitchia arecina. Both came from 1 seed and 1 sprout only. This happened after a month, maybe two after germination! Does anyone have experiences with this mutation? 

 

Happy growing!

Vojtech
