Free Chamadorea glaucifolia seed!

Recommended Posts

DoomsDave

I have a nice passel of Chamadorea glaucifolia seeds.

Free for the asking!

Please shoot me a private message with "free glaucifolia" in the subject line and I will mail them to you,

Anywhere on Earth, including cold places. C. glaucifolia is a slender, single-trunked species with fine, gray-green leaves that will take sun but also grow well in the shade. Max height here in California is about 7 feet, though they might get taller. They're relatively hardy, though not as iron-clad as radicalis.

I have a somewhat limited supply, so my plan is to collect requests for a couple of weeks then send them out.

They take about a week or two in the U.S., and up to a month overseas.

Here's one of Phil's plants.

This gives a nice idea of overall size.

That picture does not show how many there are, which is a lot.

Keep the requests coming!

The seeds I've tested all were viable - they sank like little bits of bird shot.

If i didn't already have 7 juveniles in the same pot, I'd totally be in for a bag.  As is, I'll just sit back and watch.  The germination rate on the ones I managed to keep alive was very low and I'm keen to see what the G-rate is on fresh seeds.  Keep us all updated!

Mailed out 35 envelopes tonight, 20 in the US and 15 overseas, including Canada, which is just over the river . . .

Everyone got about 20-30 seed.

I didn't clean them, there's been a high germ rate so far, if even half grow, you'll mostly have more plants than you'll know what to do with . . .

So, if you can, give them to friends!

P.S. I've got a few seeds left, shoot me PMs, this is getting near the end! (Till Larry brings me more seed.)

The big black things are cleaned seeds; the little beige ones are cleaned seeds.

 

I checked a few at random an all sank like pebbles.

The cat approves, grudgingly. The envelopes below are headed overseas.

Got my seeds today. The envelope was sort of open at the end. I ended up with 15 seeds. Thanks for the generosity.

My empty envelope arrived damaged!  Damage recorded by Concord post office.  I don't know what happened but both ends were torn off!  :rant:

Sorry Dave - if you get another crop I would be interested!

Arrived today.  Envelope very beat up, but the brutality of the USPS cleaned all the seeds for me!  Thanks Dave!

Yeah, this thing had been through the wringer, not sure if any envelope would have stood up.  Maybe a padded one.  I have no idea how this could have happened - this thing was chewed up - maybe from an electronic sorting machine malfunction?

Seeds arrived in Germany today, but the envelope was torn on one side, so only 4 seeds left. Somebody at USPS must now have a whole bag full of C. glaucifolia seeds. :o

Thank you Dave!

Seeds arrived here too Dave.

Here too, envelope badly beat, 8 seeds pre-cleaned still inside.

Should be enough going by the previous batch (which by now is a grassy field...)

 

Thx Dave!

Got the seeds over the weekend.  They look great, planted and awaiting germination.  Thank you Dave.  Maybe you could make a giant, seed-disseminating, bird costume for next Halloween?  :mrlooney:

Thank you all for your thanks!

Looks like those tighty-whitey envelopes were a bad idea; the brown ones were better. This is the first time I ever had trouble with seeds lost in transit by torn envelopes!

(Maybe that's why the cat was scowling?)

      Hello Palmtalkers,
       
      Keith got me thinking with his post...
       
      I Have a L. decora that has fruited and the seeds are ripe. This is the first year it has fruited and it's very exciting. The fruits are just starting to fall off the tree. I was curious if anyone wanted some? I have many.
       
      Send me a PM and leave a note here as well. I will cut the seeds down in a few days and dole them out. If you want to send a buck or two for postage, cool- but let me get them mailed out first, I have Paypal. If you don't want to send a buck or two no worries. Thanks.

      Whoo hoo wee! 
      Just got a whole bunch of Dypsis lanceolata seeds!
      If you want some, PM me with your address and I'll send them to you, anywhere on Earth except Morocco.
      Please put "free lanceolata seeds" or similar in the message line.
      You may know the drill already. PM me for any  questions.

      Everyone:
      A good friend of mine gave me the seed yield from his mature Dypsis plumosa, and I'd like to share them with you.
      Here's a picture of my mature specimen, which unfortunately had a very small yield this year:

      Hello, everyone:
      I have a nice crop of hybrid Brahea seeds, free shipping worldwide to all who want, no charge.
      These are large seeds, so I won't be able to get many in an envelope.
      As the pictures show, this thing is big. It was planted from a very sad-sack 7 gallon in 2006 more or less. It's now the better part of 30 feet (10 m) tall, about 12 - 15 feet (4 - 5 M) across the crown, and about 60 cm (2.5 feet) across the base. The Shoe is 32 cm, 12.5" long.
      I really don't know if these will come true or not. This palm is far bigger than either of the parents, which I think are B. armata and B. brandeegii.
      Full sun, regular water for fastest growth, will survive serious desert conditions. (Sahara? Saudi Arabia? Atacama? No problem!) Please don't plant under utility wires!
      I've been advised to plant each seed in a deep pot or cup to avoid disturbance of the roots when small. I've also been advised to wait till the plants form a number of leaves before trying to move them; they survive root breakage better that way.
