They are not the fastest growers, so please be patient! ;)

The arrow of the eophyll in my last photo was a bit misleading: :rolleyes:

After a long lasting struggle with the seed petiole the eophyll of N°1721 is finally emerging out of the cotyledon: :o

The eophyll is breaking out! No other "breaking" news?

It is not a "remote-tubular germination" but a (nearly) "adjacent-ligular germination": :huh:

Pal, here are some pictures of a sprouted Guihaia argyrata seed. In contrast to Rhapis laosensis from the distance of the emerging aerial part, it must be clearly remote tubular germination.  I wonder if this difference is consistent also in comparison of Guihaia to the rest Rhapis spp.

Today the tip of the 4th leaf became visible; it is not the fastest grower during its first years since germination …… :asleep:

Sorry, no seeds this year, because only the female plant flowered but not the male/hermaphrodite palm.

      What is your palm with the thinnest stems? My record holder is a 15 year old Rhapis micrantha. The 1st stem (grown directly from seed, no offshoot) has a diameter of 4.6 mm, much less than the stem of a 3½ year old Chamaedorea tuerckheimii with 5.0 mm. (An old no more existent Rhapis subtilis had 4.7 mm.)
      I guess good other candidates were Chamaedorea stolonifera and some Calamus spp.

      I have a Rhapis excelsa with a root stem (or whatever it’s called) that’s roughly a foot long and growing sideways. Can I cut a few inches off of this offshoot stem? I know palms are generally root sensitive, but Rhapis is supposedly tolerant of being divided. This thing won’t fit in any of the empty pots I have, and an oversized pot for such a small palm would just encourage root rot (and look ridiculous).

      This root is nearly the same size as the palm.

      Three years ago I decided to trial some of the large offsets of a colony of variegated Rhapis palms outside here for the winter. Where I live used to be classified as zone 8B but has since moved up in the world to 9A due to climate change. Our winters have been mild. Things were going great the first 2 years and then this past winter we had one surprise freeze where it dos cold enough very quickly that it could have snowed. There was freezing rain instead and a lot of my plants that usually sail through a dry freeze got damaged. Including the variegated rhapis. But it was not killed, so I am hopeful that in the future, all it might need to make it is a frost cloth covering. It suffered about the same amount of burn as my many regular non-variegated rhapis palms. So I a, hopeful

      Most of the time I saw these plants in pots, here we planted it in the soil and hope it'll make a nice clump.
