@caixeta Could it be possible that your »Lytocaryum insigne« from 22 Sep 2011 was actually also Lytocaryum itapebiense ??? It looks to me very similar to your new unique baby … :huh:

Good observation . The Lytocaryum insigne up I had won Plantarum Institute ( Harry Lorenzi ), unfortunately not plant this to me more. It is doubt.

 Mauricio, your "baby" plant is looking very good.  Congratulations!  I have a few seeds but none have germinated yet unfortunately.

… and up she rises? No, at first the bad news: N°1606 shows a strange glassy, not opaque colour and doesn’t grow any more. :( And I fear that the remaining three seeds may be not viable, too. :bemused:

5752b87551f9e_N16062016-06-04IMG_8726.th

The good news is that the other five seedlings (i.e. 50%) are healthy: N°1601-03 are growing their 2nd plumule, N°1604-05 still their 1st. :mellow:

The first three leaves (or so) will be entire, as the pic of Caixeta’s baby shows. But I’ll post another photo, when the eophyll has grown a bit more. — The seedling N°1606 is glassy :( and didn’t move since 1st June. And the other 3 seeds are still sleeping :asleep: or … :sick:

I guess @caixeta meant único which also means »only one«: "my only (one) baby."

These are the seeds which haven’t germinated yet after 72 days resp. 151 days: three from 2016-03-29 and one I got earlier on 2016-01-10. The seedlings N°1601-03 are showing the eophyll, N°1604-05 only the 2nd plumule, and N°1606 doesn’t grow any more.

Very nice selection Pal! I see we have a very similar interest in palm species.

Be aware of spider mites for the tuerckheimii's. I finally got rid of mites on my own tuercks, but some leaves are damaged and it will take some time for them to look their best again.

Oh, and I thought the five Lyto babies could grow safely, being protected under the canopy of the Ch tuerckheimii:huh:

Yeah, it has already a trunk, but you can’t see it because L itapebi’s stems are subterranean. :P

      I soaked them for 3 days (May 3-5) and placed in a 4:1 mixture of perlite and peat moss. 28 seeds split into 5 pots, 1 indoors (around 78F) and 4 outdoors (around 90F day - 75F night). Was expecting to wait 6 months to a year for germination. Surprisingly, the first to sprout was in the indoor pot! Since then I've moved all 5 into the garage (80's-90'sF) and I look forward to more action!
      A quick question, when is a good time to transplant it into its own pot with more nutritious soil?

      I had a CIDP seed and 3 P. Dactyliferas  germinate roughly a week ago after spending 3-4 weeks in a moist perlite plate outside in north FL. I moved them into holepunched cups filled with a well-draining cactus soil kept moist to finish germination (+minute amounts of fungicide). When can I expect to see something pop up?

      During last winter one of my four L itapebiense dried out for an unknown reason beginning from the newest inner leaves and spreading to the older ones. The root system was very strong and healthy and did not show any sign of rotting.



       
      Here one of the last photos when it was still very healthy (2nd palm from left):
