Hi Everyone. Which of the following Dypsis is the cold hardiest if any? I’d really like to try Dypsis and the following ones are available from a grower:
Dypsis ampasindave 5 l 30 -40 cm
Dypsis cabadea in 5 l bags +- 2 m
Dypsis Carl Smithii in 0.5 l bags +-0.4 m
Dypsis lanceolata in 5 l bags 1.8 m
Dypsis lutescens Bamboo palm in 5 l bags +- 0.5 m
Dypsis dark mealy bug in 5 l bags 30 cm
Dypsis lucubensis in 10 l bags +- 1.6 m
Dypsis leptochilos (teddy bear palm) in 20 l bags + - 1.9 m
Dypsis pembanum in 5 l bags +- 1.8 m
Dypsis robusta in 5 l bags
Got a couple thousand Bismarck seeds from a mature female right next to a male. Some of the seeds were still a tad green, but all were ripe, and the embryos filled the nut shell, though they all had a small hole in the center of the embryo I don't see in other palm seeds,. Does anyone know if this is normal?
I soaked a couple hundred fruit and all, and set the rest aside in #7 pots for a few weeks till the fruit loosened up. Now I am cleaning the fruit and soaking , and getting 100% floaters. Opened a couple and the embryos are receding from the shell and the space (between embryo & shell) has a bit of white fuzzy look. Anyone know what I am dealing with here?
Should I just clean them all, soak and attempt to germinate anyway? Hate to waste 100% of my time when I could dedicate the space and labor to easier trees to grow, but even if I can get 20% ish , I don't mind the work.
I don't even remember now, at which So Cal Palm Society meeting auction I bought this Dypsis. I do recall it was solitary and probably no more than a 1 gallon when purchased. I dropped it in a shaded spot under a Burretiokentia hapala, probably anticipating it would be a smaller gauge trunk and continue taking advantage of the Burretiokentia's shade. It has since produced one new subterranean offset from the main trunk. Any thoughts on which fine leafed Dypsis this is? Markings on the trunk should be a clue.
Hi, new member here. I just received these Canary Island date palm seeds from treeseeds.com. I wonder how long I should keep them indoors and when to plant outside. Also, what soil would be good for them? I appreciate the help!
Summer should mean things in bloom. Some Dypsis inflorescence in my garden with and without flowers starting with a Dypsis onilahensis hybrid. Share yours!
