FREE Trithrinax acanthacoma/brasiliensis seeds

Recommended Posts

DoomsDave

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.

Pant, pant, pant. Are they not still a bit greenish though? Seeds get easily cleaned off, just a single squeeze...

My own free distribution project for this year is still un der construction, errr under ripening is rather more proper.

Shoot me a PM! Shoot me another in case you already did. I'll send more than one envelope.

These palms are so underappreciated in colder palm growing places. I hate throwing away good seeds. I'd much rather spend to post happiness.

These are like heavy buckshot once cleaned. Those nuts are like little stones. CLINK! right to the bottom of the water.

100 years from now when people gaze at trithrinax in the most remote place, they'll know it was because of you.

Did you get my PM?

I did.

I'm getting seeds ready to send out this week.

There's some fleshy fruit that needs to be removed, then the seeds need to be washed and dried.

Finally got the last of the seeds all soaked up and planted. They all look great so far. This is my first time ever planting seeds to boot! :D Trithrinax acanthacoma was definitely on my top 5 most wanted palms before you even offered, so I'm incredibly excited to try and grow these. I'm going to be watching them very close and do my best to care for them. Hopefully they'll like Central Florida, if not I'll try and keep one indoors. Thanks once again Dave, I'll keep you updated if I can get these to sprout.

Yes, that'd be great! I have mine in soil less mix, in a mini green house, at 20C and 91% RH. Here's hoping that's good enough for germination!

I got the seeds yesterday ( two envelopes ).  If all goes right with germination, I will have garden full of Trithrinax. :)

Thanks Dave!

      A recently completed addition to my garden in Bloemfontein.  I planted three Trithrinax campestris & a Livistona decora.  I'll add ground cover etc later.

      Can anyone please assist with identifying this palm.  I suspect it is Trithrinax  schizophylla.

      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.
