Way to go for mine! It is not very fast but I suppose that's because it doesn't receive the excellent care you give yours. But still, I am happy it is alive:-).IMG_3541.thumb.jpg.1c409753fdca523d21585

Hmmmm …, looks a bit like suffering from wet feet (?) during the dark season … :bemused:

N°1408 exactly three years after germination, leaf #9 is partially pinnate, #10 (spear) will become entirely pinnate.

N°1402 has the longest pinnae (leaflets), up to 53 cm; the palm is ca. 140 cm tall (without pot):

Is there nobody who likes N°1402? (pic above) :huh:

I intend to give it away. :( But shipment is not possible any more because the total height from the tip of leaf #11 to the bottom of the double pots is ca. 180 cm. :o

Or it would cost a small fortune of €€€ or $$$. :wacko:

In case of OZ the customs (quarantine) is still more problematical than the incredible expensive shipment … :mellow:

Ok, we will find a way. The problem with shipping is its size: Including the pot, palm N°1402 is 180 cm tall. Maybe there is a specialist who can make a strong box for me, but only the postage would cost ca. EUR 60 to UK. If you are interested PM me.

The leaflets of the pinnate leaves of L insigne can be almost as fine as the ones of L weddellianum:

Even if you would, I couldn’t accept it, because I don’t have any free space on my window sills or in my tiny home office. :(

Yes, and they become more and more beautiful with each new finely pinnate leaf! :wub:

Yes, Lytocaryum insigne has really pinnate leaves (and not only large strap leaves): :greenthumb::D

The double pot which it is now in is good for this season. The palm stands currently on a shady gallery, perhaps only 20% sun.

      Syagrus insignis vs S. weddelliana
      Between 1995 and 2010 the species Lytocaryum insigne (now again Syagrus insignis) was treated as synonym for the "correct" term Lytocaryum weddellianum (now Syagrus weddelliana). In this thread I am trying to document the differences between these two species during their first years since germination.
      Literature discussing the genus Lytocaryum (Noblick & Lorezi 2010) and its transfer to Syagrus (Noblick & Meerow 2015) can be downloaded as pdf:
      http://www.palms.org/palmsjournal/2010/v54n1p5_17.pdf
      http://www.researchgate.net/publication/281374491_The_transfer_of_the_genus_Lytocaryum_to_Syagrus
      (or via IPS)
      It would be very nice if also other members could contribute their photos which show the characteristic differences between these two species or their similarities when they have pinnate leaves.
      My first sketch shows the typical habit of adult trees. I regret that I don’t have my own photos which I could post here. The next photos document that it can be impossible to distinguish their seeds: Seeds of S. insignis may be smaller or bigger or of the same size.
      The other photos document the differences between the seedlings, beginning with photos of half a year old juvenile plants. All Syagrus weddelliana germinated in April 2013, all Syagrus insignis in February and March 2014.
      Here the sketches: Actually S. insignis (here from Espírito Santo) is much taller than S. weddelliana (here Rio de Janeiro) and its trunk is also much thicker:

      Two seeds looking totally alike:

      All seeds of S. insignis which germinated in 2014 were smaller than the average of L. weddelliana:

      And here three seeds of actually germinated palms:
