LIVISTONA FULVA

Recommended Posts

Stevetoad

Can anyone tell me if livistona fulva has rust under the leaves as a seedling or how long it takes for this to show? I have 2 from different places. one is in the ground and is about 4 feet tall (no rust) the other is a one gallon (no rust). ill post pics later when i get home.  thank you for any info.

No, they don't, not until they are older. Here's some one gallon size. And the next pic showing it's color.

That is so cool, it looks like more like a Coccothrinax than a Livistona.

Thank you! Poor thing almost got hacked out this weekend. I'll let it go a bit longer to see what it turns into.

Here's my biggest. About 5 foot tall. No rust at all. It does have some pretty good sized liguels which I don't see on my decora or Australis.

I have a fulva a bit bigger than those one gallons and it has nothing to show yet. I have a feeling once it gets that copper back on it, I will be disappointed...

Lovely palms...mine all had reasonable colour from about 2 ft tall, but it developed more over time...by the time they had clean trunk, they were really colourful...

Man Daryl, Looking sharp! Not like this one below. Never seen color like yours before. I have this just to have it; it'll be swell if it ever shows like yours.

Mandrew, at that size you should start seeing scales on the undersides of the leaves. Not enough to be noticeable from a distance, but they should be there if you look really close. A couple more years and you should see some definite colour.

I have to admit, the more colourful photos above (the first two) were taken in the late afternoon light 'golden hour' and this colours the leaves up to be almost orange...the photos reflect the colours in real life, but only at that time of day...usually they are a little more subtle (the last two), but still very obvious.

This is one of my favourite Livistonas...I should really source a couple for my new garden!

Are these the scales you were referring to or just wishful thinking?

My palm came from Faith Bishock. She has an extensive collection of Livistona in Sarasota.

Wishful thinking...yes, they could almost be classified as scales, but should be scattered over the leaves right up to the leaf tips on all leaflets...

Now that the non-stop rains of the last two days have paused for a while, I have been able to get a couple of pics from my garden. The first is of one planted oput in April 2014, ATV for scale. This one is getting smaller leaves, showing signs of boron deficiency, which I have treated it for.

Here is a leaf underside. It looked lighter and rustier to the eye than it does in the photo.

There aren't many Livistona growers on the Big Island, perhaps because people are immersed in their Calyptrocalyx, Licualas, Pinangas, Arecas, Iguanuras, etc., etc. The ones that are found are usually fulva, because of the color. I got into the Livistona habit in central Florida. Here, I also have benthamii, drudei, muellerii, lanuginosa, and carinensis.

There are some beauties at the Melbourne Botanic Gardens. They are really eye catching once they develop some trunk. Really robust palms and clearly they don't mind cool conditions for all of us temperate growers.

Could this very young plant be a real fulva? It's so spiny! If it is to early yet for a positive identification I vae to check out is a negative one is already possible.
