"Water Palms" (Question)

Recommended Posts

PalmTreeDude

I have seen pictures of palms fully growing out of water and water beds, I am wondering, what are some of these palms? I know Sabal minor can grow out of water beds, but what are the others? Or at least some. Does a Majesty Palm have the ability to grow in a water bed? I do know they like their water! Anyway, if anyone has any information on this topic, please tell me!

Awesome images! Thank you for sharing. I would not expect a royal to be directly in the water, but beside it instead, or on the shore. Interesting!

I have seen sabal palmetto grow in this position in both fresh and salt water.

You can add Mauritia flexuosa, Mauritiella armata, and Hydriastele rheophytica.

Beccariophoenix alfredii seems to be OK in water too.

So, I thought I'd throw in some more photos to add to this thread. 

Some Mauritia flexuosa in habitat. I do believe the small ones are Mauritia as well. Incredibly majestic and abundant palms in this part of the Amazon.

Desmoncus, a climbing palm. Could be D. mitis or D. polyacanthos. Mean stuff, trying to grab onto one would rip your fingers to shreds. 

Parts were totally submerged. This photo was taken in Ecuador.

Another water lover, Manicaria saccifera. Monster palms lining the waterways, Costa Rica.

Here are some Roystonea regia growing in water at Dickinson State Park west of Jupiter, FL. This is along the Loxahatchee River that eventually flows into the ocean. This area is where the fresh water starts to mix with saltier water. It is where mangroves and bald cypress intermix.

These Livistona chinensis are often in standing water during periods of high rainfall. They are growing along Howell Creek at Mead Gardens in Winter Park, FL. The whole area is black, wet, mucky soil year round. It often floods and they can be in 1-2 feet of water for weeks at a time. Livistona chinensis has naturalized here and there are thousands of them growing there.

Sorry, I don't have any photos of them, but I have seen Washingtonia robustas growing in the resacas (oxbow lakes, which are the old river channels of the Rio Grande River).  I never would have thought that a desert palm like the robustas could grow in water all the time.

Washintonia in water is actually a natural thing for them, well, I know Washingtonia Filifera grow with their trunks about half way in water in dessert oasis. I think only the Robusta would be able to grow fully in water, very cool! Thank you for mentioning this!

I've just planted some chinensis around a similar type water course as in your first pic. I'm trying to get the same sort of look in one area of the garden. Will trim the old fronds though. At the moment the young plants sit in water periodically. One hasn't made it, but I think the others will.

      I went to Kew Gardens for my birthday on Tuesday 22nd September. 
      A great chance to check out the gardens and the fantastic glass houses, of which several were unfortunately closed due to the pandemic. Nonetheless, plenty of palms and exhibits were still on display and in their full glory on a beautiful sunny autumn/fall day here at 51N in southeastern England. The air temperature was around 27C / 80F at the time of visiting. Conditions are very dry at present as we have had no rainfall at all during September so far, and only around 4-5 inches of rain over the past 6 months, since 1st March. 
      Here is a photo-documentation of the gardens, glass houses and the various palms located within. The first of several posts...


















       
      Unfortunately some of the attractions and glass houses were closed due to the pandemic, although the main couple were still open. Please excuse me for not naming each palm individually...



















      Crossing on to the temperate glass house...

      Is this normal? I noticed the oldest frond on my new Washingtonia robusta that I got from Lowes (really cheap) was dying in a weird way, it is almost like the way some diseases start in palms. But the thing is it was like this for a few weeks now, I think I am just being paranoid. Does this look normal? Maybe it was just damaged so it is dying like this? I just am hoping this doesn’t have some disease.

      I received some Chamaedorea radicalis seeds about one week ago, and have had them soaking in water since (changing water out, of course). I’m about to sow them but I noticed there is a thin looking layer of shell or something around the actual seed, should I try to peel that off or is it fine if it stays on?

      I just bought my first Dypsis lutescens (clump) at a local nursery to use as a potted plant. What are some things I should know about these? How fast do these grow? I saw some big ones in the nursery that had full sized trunks. Would it be possible to separate some of the smaller ones from the edge of the clump without hurting the others?
