DD, are these pretty tough with respect to crown rot?  I have been pretty lazywhen it comes to getting water all over the ones I have.  Wondering it I should be more careful. Thanks.

I wouldn't worry. They're rainforest palms, and I water all my babies overhead. Regular showers suit them fine!

Everyone, re-send me your addresses and I'll mail out new envelopes. I have plenty for all.

DD - fyi, when mine showed up I needed to pay for postage.  It was only a couple of bucks, but the original postage was insufficient.  I wonder if that's played an issue.

I'm sure it has.

Fewer seeds per envelope - anyone have a postal scale?

Dear Dave,

Your Brahea seeds came to me within 10 days (central europe - czech rep.)

Archie seeds dont came after 3 weeks :-(

Mail here can sometimes take weeks to arrive, or never arrive at all, yet usually things sent from the UK arrive here within 2 days! Very odd...

Don't worry Dave, they may still turn up here :greenthumb:

Same here. Not arrived in Holland yet. 

Brahea seeds came as well after a very long time, so maybe they are still on the way.

Bought a postage meter today, so I'll have a better idea what they weigh

Some of those envelopes had a LOT of seed, I suspect weight might be a problem for some of you.

I have so many seed it's a crime

My cup runneth over . . .

Thanks Dave!!! I received mine today... well technically they arrived a few days ago, but I owed a few bucks to the postman, so I had to go to the post office to pick it up. No worries -- I really appreciate the generosity!!! The envelope held up much better than the one for the Chamaedorea seeds.

 

Happy growing to you! I plan to make a visit on my way to work in Whittier one of these days. I owe you lunch for your generosity.

If you still don't have seeds, let me know and I'll send more.

THey've been re-mailed to Cikas and Kirkhutch

If you end up with more, then share the babies with all who'll take them. Spread the palmy love!

Mine never arrived either and I doubt they will anymore now. I wonder what happened to them - if things get stuck in German customs, you usually get a notice that your delivery has been detained and why.

Dave, I will re-PM you my address for the next round of seed shipping. Thank you again, I really admire your persistence in spreading palm love.

Everyone:

The seeds weren't cleaned. The dried fruit makes them float. They're fertile as the Devil's workshop, the Children of the Corn, whatever.

PLant them in community pots, water and wait. Your cup will runneth over.

If not, ask, and I'll send more.

Do you have any Lodoicea seeds (podex botanicus)? If not, I could be happy also with a fistful of tuckeri seeds.

Shoot me a PM.

Keep in mind that these are tender, alas.

      The sun was sinking making the world glow.
      I was sitting in my garden in front of my front door, and noted the striking silvery under-leaf of an Archontophoenix tuckeri.
      Pan back a bit and note the golden infructescence of the Caryota urens nearby. It's been so warm, the Archies are blooming a number of months early.

      Anyone having an abundance of seeds they are looking to share some of, please keep me in mind. I'm willing to cover shipping. Let me know what you have. Thanks ,Mark

      I have some fresh (ripe and still on the palms) seeds of C. adscendens and C. tepejilote.  Free to anyone in the US - respond here or in PM with address.  For anyone not in the US, international shipping has become a bit expensive, but I might consider it if there is some interesting seed offered in trade.

      The palm below has been in my garden since about 2004, when I got it as a 15 gallon. It's now about 10 feet tall.
      This is a great species for those PalmTalkers who must contend with heat and cold. It's native to Argentina, where it experiences both. If you're in the Mediterranean region in Europe, England, maybe even Holland, these are worth a try in the ground. Likewise in the Southeastern US where a lot of cool palms are marginal; South Carolina, and southern Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Northern Florida. Try them in West Texas, Arizona. They will take cool, too, in British Columbia, northern California, coastal Oregon and Washington.
      And, anywhere else in world you want to try some!
      All seeds will be cleaned and posted at no charge to recipients, in the U.S. and the rest of the world.
      I have HUNDREDS. Ask and ye shall receive!
      PM me your full mailing address, with "Free Trithrinax seed" in the message. After I've accumulated some requests, I'll send them out, likely after New Year's Day.
