Recommended Posts

DoomsDave

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 . . . . . :)

      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.

      Summer should mean things in bloom.  Some Dypsis inflorescence in my garden with and without flowers starting with a Dypsis onilahensis hybrid.  Share yours!

      I just bought my first Dypsis lutescens (clump) at a local nursery to use as a potted plant. What are some things I should know about these? How fast do these grow? I saw some big ones in the nursery that had full sized trunks. Would it be possible to separate some of the smaller ones from the edge of the clump without hurting the others?

      I confess I haven't been tending to my garden duties as diligently as I should but that's for a good cause. Two weeks ago my son and daughter-in-law, who work in the local health system, asked if I would be willing to sew them masks and hats to wear at work. Homemade PPEs aren't certified against coronavirus but hospitals and medical staff around here are desperate for any protection. How could I refuse? So, I dusted off my mother's 70-year-old plus Singer Featherweight sewing machine and my 30-year-old serger, obtained patterns and fabric and went to work. Visual impairment doesn't make sewing easy but I've managed to churn out enough masks and hats to make my children ecstatic. But all that stitching meant I haven't been able to weed, repot or take new photos.
      But being quarantined in the house means I have time to dig through all the photos I've taken in the 12+ years I've been with IPS and PalmTalk. That blast from the past goes all the way back to April 2008 after I joined PalmTalk (in Jan.) then attended my first Extravaganza at Jeff Searle's palm garden of Eden circa April. I had forgotten how bare my yard was back then. And that the palms I eagerly bought were destined to be wiped out in the winter(s) of 2010. Still, they live on in photos.
      My Caribbean Garden in front of the house was most developed at that time. We received sewer service in 2006 but before that the holding tank prevented a lot of digging and planting.
      View of Caribbean Garden looking west.

      I had planted several Coccothrinax spissa and sp seedlings away from the holding tank around 2006.

      My first success at seed germination: Sabal palmetto I found down the street.

      I decided to turn my south-facing, waterfront back yard into a jungle (which would be mostly destroyed in the winters of 2010). I already had a ready-made canopy for tropical palm seedlings in the form of 7 large queen palms planted overlooking the Isabelle Canal by a local nursery in 1993 - queens were the landscape-palms-de-rigueur during the 90s). But they served their purpose until fusarium wilt wiped them out in 2014/2015.

      Dypsis crinita

      Areca concinna - one of my all time favorite palms since I bought this one from Jeff Searle in 2008. I babied it for nearly two years until it met its Waterloo in the record freeze of Jan. 2010 even though we tried all means of protection to save it.

      Areca concinna and queens

      Areca concinna and me

      Finally, a photo of the newbie me peppering Jeff Searle with palm questions in 2008. He will likely never forgive me.
