Hello! :) My LP I sowed in February now look like this.

I have 3 seedlings. Two are growing fast. One is tiny. @Pal Meir How would you price them, because I intend to sell them in the spring? How much do they go? their height is 15 cm without flowerpot.

Don't sell them, keep growing! They'll reward you.

@Kai I need money for other expenses. I will buy new seeds, don't worry. :)

Reading these tales of your all's beautiful L. wedellianum has inspired me, would love to grow some from seed. Do you all know anybody that has seeds available?

If I were to sell seedlings this size I'd reasonably ask 3 to 4 euro's... maybe.

I'd probably give them away though and just ask for return in shipping costs. These seedlings won't get you new furniture I'm affraid...

My point being: these palms are more beautifull and rewarding than the small amount of money they might generate.

Don’t sell those Lytos for nothing! :bemused: Sell anything else!  Your house, your car, ………

L weddellianum is the most beautiful indoor palm species for our latitudes, much more beautiful than other very expensive or rare palm genera. :greenthumb:

Ok, I'm going to have to given in and get at least one of these gorgeous little palms.  I'm guessing since im in Florida at 27 degrees N, that I should't have any trouble with them.  I know there are a few places around that sell some decent sized ones.  That said, I think I might want to try one from seed. ;)

You know I've been watching this thread all summer long and am thinking I'm going to have to give them a whirl as well. Simply stunning palms. As Pal Meir noted above perhaps one of the nicest potted palms. I tend to agree! Now where to source seed of L. Wedd and L. insigne seed on this side of the pond ....

Good luck finding Insigne... Try the Lytocaryum Hoehnei. I now have 10 in the ground & 4 in containers. I gave up on the Wedd's as they seem to have a issue with fungus here.

You should try L weddells only in pots, not in the ground. It is the most attractive potted palm for indoors or lanais imo.

Where did you get your Hoehnei if you don't mine me asking? Floribunda? You are correct Insigne seem nearly impossible to locate. The Wedd's would be for pots around the house.

Even during the dark season the  Lyto weddells are pushing strong new roots:

Yes, I got them from Floribunda. They have tripled in size in the year I've had them.

 

Pal I tried a couple in pots & they got some fungus as well.

What had you done? Did you spray them with water for increasing humidity during winter ???

No, they were in regular garden soil which I think didn't drain well enough for them.

»In regular garden soil« ??? Yes, that’s the safest way to kill pottetd L weddells instantly! :bemused:

I would LOVE to find Insigne, even just seed. I guess for now I will stick to Weddellianum's.   Now just to find one.   The one place I found that sells them locally is closed for the winter.  They are about an hours drive northeast of me.

Wedd's you can find no problem. I have been after Insigne for 3 years now with no luck.

Wait another 3+x years until my L insigne will be seeding! :greenthumb::D

This is why I got a L. wedd and hoehnei on my last Floribunda order. These guys keep sharing photos of their stunning specimens and I finally broke down and went for it! 

Pal, put me on the list for a few insigne seeds too, please!! :yay:

Since a couple of days the temps here are quite mild, but as we have gusty storms with speeds up to 80 km/h I can’t leave my two L insigne outdoors, only the storm hardy L weddellianum in a protected corner of Balconia Germanica:

My friend bought seeds from bsquare_1 and all of them rotted. Strange, because he has very bad reviews on the net.

      Not a Lodoicea, but only two L weddellianum potted together, today 6 years old:

      And 2 years ago:

      And when they were still younger:

      And 4 months after birth, er, germination:

      My 10 Lytocaryum weddellianum grown up from seed in 2013 were more and more getting too tall  for my desktop, except one (N°1306c) which I had kept quite small by very brutal  root pruning. (But even the other pruned palm N°1306a is growing too tall …)
      Now I am intending to keep my 3 one year young L batavum as small bonsai palms. First, I will keep them as long as possible in their tiny Ø8xH9cm clay pots. Second, I will expose them also to direct sunlight, but watching that they don’t get burned. 
      @Jamesasb , you have mentioned (and posted a pic) one year ago that you are making one of your L weddellianum to a bonsai. Are there already visible and positive results? 
      Here the desktop-sized N°1306c:

      And here the 3 new bonsai candidates:

    • Pal Meir

      This is the story of the weakest of ten Lytocaryum weddellianum seedlings.
      In 2013 all other seeds germinated between April 01 and 26, only one small seed germinated much later on May 8 after 49 days (cf. pic #1).  And this seedling N°1308 would not grow like its siblings and stayed small though it was the only single seedling which was planted since the beginning in a large Ø12xH12 cm clay pot (cf. pic #2).  (The other five singles N°1301 to N°1305 had only tiny Ø8xH9cm clay pots.) So I checked the roots and was very worried (pic #3).  The soil mix could not be the the reason because the other Lyto weddells were planted in the same mix.  So I guessed it might be that the draining hole of the pot was closed by something too tight. I placed another piece of a clay pot over the hole and repotted the palm with the same soil into the same pot.  And it became looking happier (pic #4)  and is a happy little bonsai palm until now, pushing its 18th leaf (pic #5), with very strong and healthy roots (pic #6). 
      So we can see that even an ideal soil mix may cause problems when the pot is too large or the drainage not optimal.
