No tags on this Dypsis I saw at the San Diego Zoo. Anyone have any illuminating ideas on ID? Alliteration always has an alluring appeal!
Howdy, and happy new year.
Seems like I rot my Dypsis seeds, thoughts on how to germinate?
Thanks a heap for suggestions!
I was walking around the garden this morning and noticed my Dypsis ambositrae was flowering. Looks like its not going to set seed but hopefully next time it will. I'm not aware of any others flowering in CA but I'm sure someone's has.

I recently got around 100 Areca seeds from a plant in Niagara Falls. The majority of them still with the flesh on. I’ve tried using the baggie method with soil and perlite as well as paper towel with another group. It’s been 3 weeks and not seeing anything happening. I have now moved them into a done around 80 degrees. How long should I expect to see something happening. Thanks
Planted these out a couple of years ago and although I thought they were an attractive little palm, didn't pay a significant amount of attention to them.
Hilo Jason was over a couple of days ago and on one of our grand tours, we stopped and took a good look at this little palm. Never realized how colorful the thin stem was and the contrast with the deep green, thick, entire, lobed leaves. Starting to lightly clump and seed too.
Don't know how successful these would be in California, but it would be a nice palm for a small space or area.
