And how many seeds did your Lyto produce until now?

I believe it went as follows:

Inflo #2 produced 13 seeds

Inflo #3 produced 7 seeds

Inflos # 4, 5 and 6 produced no seeds at hybrid attemps

Inflo #7 produced 13 seeds

Inflo #8 produced 8 seeds

And collecting the pollen for when the female flowers open:

Hello Kai,

many luck for your pollination. If you finally have some seeds left, I would purchase a few and try to grow one or two.

Hey Eckhard, if this pollination leeds to viable seeds, I'm sure we can work something out.

I have a nice indoor L. Wedd flowering right now. After going through this great thread, I want to give it a go trying to pollinate the flowers. 

I do have one question. Are you removing the male male flowers as soon as they fully open, or are you waiting or the male flowers to fall naturally then collect?

I let them fall off naturally into the collecting bag. The dried fallen off male flowers still contain pollen and this keeps falling out. I just go through the bag with pollen and male flowers with the pencil when pollinating.

Good luck!

Thanks for the feedback Kai!

Do you think that removing the male flowers form the inflorescence after they have fully opened and placing in a vented container would work as well?

Yeah sure. I don't see why not but I also don't see the point in doing so.

I just didn't want to risk condensation inside the bag, which I realize is very unlikely, but figured id ask the question about removing the flowers.

That's a good point. To prevent condensation and fungus, I swap bags every other day. This way I have one bag on the the palm and one bag open and drying the flowers and pollen.

      I planted the following three Syagrus species and/or hybrids on my garden lot way back around 2013. I grew most if not all of them from seeds. At one time they were tagged but no longer. I believe one of them (#3) may be S. picrophylla but need confirmation. Nos. 1 & 2 are true unknowns. All of them are smaller and much slower growing than common queens. Nor have they been affected by the fursiarum wilt that killed off all my queens and mules in 2014/15. None of them has flowered yet. They are easy-growing palms that take my climate and soil in stride.

      Hi Everyone
      I need this Syagrus species identified please.  I tried under the "Cold Hardy" heading, but got no replies.  All inputs will be welcomed.
      Thank you

      Hi Everyone
      Another mystery palm.  Can anyone please help with identifying this palm.  I suspect it is a Syagrus sp.  Coronata?  Is there a green form?

      Hello, everyone. I'm a journalist from Brazil and I started to cultivate palms recently. I bought this palm in a shop here in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I'd like to identify it correctly. Is it a Syagrus weddelliana,another species, a hybrid?
      It's about 80 cm tall. Its largest leaves have 58 cm rachis and about 40-45 leaflets on each side.
