Whoo hoo wee! 

Just got a whole bunch of Dypsis lanceolata seeds!

If you want some, PM me with your address and I'll send them to you, anywhere on Earth except Morocco.

Please put "free lanceolata seeds" or similar in the message line.

You may know the drill already. PM me for any  questions.

I have a lot.

Of seed, that is.

This is a slender species, multiple trunks, about 2" (5 cm) thick, to about 18 feet (6m) tall, after 20+ years in the ground in Southern California.

Should be good in a pot indoors. So, Croatians, Swedes, Brits, Canadians, Nebraskans, etc., put in a request, too.

Oh, yes. Gathering PMs to send out a bunch of seed all at once.

Alright, getting ready to send out the first batch.

So far, I've got 28 requests, from, inter alia; Spain, France, Phillipines, Germany, Netherlands, Croatia, Czech Republic; and Florida, Nebraska, Massachussetts, Florida, Georgia, Utah, and of course, California.

I'm a bit disappointed, actually. I expected hordes of Tasmanian Devils asking for seed.

I can EASILY handle another 30 requests, no problem.

Send me a PM, and get on the Lanceolata Train, leaving the station.

Here's a picture of the seeds.

They HAVE NOT been cleaned. They might even be a bit moldy.

But they'll still grow.

Should we clean them?  Or will they fair as well as they are?

You can clean them if you want.

I usually don't, though if you do, soak them first, which will make it a lot easier to clean the dried fruit off.

I've found them to be good growers and sprouters as a species.

Hello Dave

I have never received the seeds that you kindly sent to me. probably a postal or customs problem.

My dypsis plumosa and brahea grow well but slow.

Cordially Marc.

Hi Dave,

I did get my D. lanceolata seeds in June.  I also got the D. plumosa seeds as well.  THANK YOU!

4 of the D. Plumosa seeds sprouted within 2 weeks, the rest are still sleeping.

The D. lanceolata seeds have not germinated........:unsure: so they too are sleeping or becoming organic nutrients.

Anybody else have success with the lancies?

Nothing for me, but my germination methods might not be the most stellar. I do remember that there were a lot of floaters (even after cleaning) with the batch I got.

No, this is "liquidation", embryo is dead. I wish I prove wrong though...

It is an easy "grow" on the south coast,where I am they would perish,but 300 km south they grow with very few issues.

You might want to try some indoors. Small and skinny, like we sometimes wish we were . . . . . :)

      The sun is still ferocious and days usually sweltering but north and east breezes carry a whiff of cooler, drier days on the horizon. Another 4-5 weeks and the rainy season spigot abruptly shuts off. I do most of my yard work in the fall, winter and early spring trying to catch up with growth in overdrive from summer. Yesterday I decided to make a photo update of my tropical container garden on the back lanai. Last month I did battle with a mealybug infestation on some of my Chamaedoreas using two spray bottles of insecticidal soap and imidicloprid drench. Yesterday I found scale starting to invade - more insecticidal soap. Come early Nov. I will proactively go after spider mites with one of my two miticides. Right now all my uber tropical potted palms are at their peak glory.
      Among the palms featured below are two that have lost their tags and need an expert ID. Please help me find out who they are.
      First Photo: a view of the length of the lanai looking east. I keep the birdcage covered with two layers of commercial grade shadecloth to protect the palms inside.

      One palm in particular inspired this photo essay: Pinanga cochinchinensis. I've had a checkered history with Pinangas. I love them but so often they cling to life for me, then give up and die. I'm so delighted this handsome clumper has hung in and actually grew to about 6' tall. I recently moved it to a larger pot because the wind kept blowing it over.

      Areca catechu Dwarf - This is my oldest surviving dwarf Areca and the only large one kept on the lanai. The rest stay outdoors.

      Johannesteijsmannia altifrons - my larger of two. Both have done well for me. I have repotted them once with great trepidation because they are quite root sensitive but they took the disruption in stride. I've had no luck growing any of the other Joey species.


      Ravenea hildebrandtii

      Heterospathe salomonensis

      The genus Dypsis has scores of species. Many, but not all, prefer the mediterranean climate in CA, as opposed to the sweltering heat of FL. I am currently trying the following species in pots:
      Dypsis mirabilis - I've had this colorful little palm for almost a year. It will go through its second winter here soon.

      Dypsis psammophila - A slender, gracile clumper related to the larger commoner D. lutescens

      Dypsis prestoniana - My tentative introduction to the large to huge species that often grow like snails and keel over when faced with the heat of the day and night

      Got to take a break now. More photos soon. Thanks for looking.

      I got this dypsis basilonga less than a year ago as a seedling and has been doing good except for the occasional scale , now the new leaf is so big it is bent and laying on the ground.. do i need to do anything?

      These are seedlings I sprouted from RPS. I'm 95% sure I didn't mislabel the seedlings, but I suppose it's possible. The plants I thought were Dypsis Leucomalla are decidedly not. They sailed through winter, no problem.

      These are the seedlings that I labeled as A. myolensis. They've been slugs and look pretty bad. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of what the seeds look liked.

      Did I mislabel them or is what I received as D. Leucomalla something else? The germination rate was better on the Dypsis than the Myolensis. Thanks for your input!

      By BS Man about Palms
      After enjoying some recent pics of the stunning size and color of these palms, it brings to mind an observation I had years back. I only recently thought about it again and I realized this Dypsis seems to have a different growing characteristic to any other Dypsis. It seems to grow like a hybrid of a heeled palm and a non-heeled palm. It seems to grow most similarly to a Sabal of all things... at least to my eyes.
      What I mean by this is it seems to grow sideway like a heeled palm, yet it never seems to go below the surface like a standard palm. If fact the base just continues to get fatter, splitting the older leaf bases with wild abandon, kinda like most Sabals I see until they trunk.
