I'm looking for Chambeyronia Macrocarpa - Red Leaf Palm Seeds. I've been monitoring rps.com but they are out of stock for a while.
If anyone is selling I am very much interested and have a US adres. I am from Aruba, Dutch Caribbean and I'd like to try this variety out on the island, sunny all year round with a rainy season.
Looking forward to the possibilities.
Sunny regards, from our small island!
I gather it's because of some damage at the base of this one of 3. It's a bit to elevated and could used a boost of soil. Be interesting to see if it actually develops.
Nothing can brighten your day than a new red leaf opening on a Chambeyronia macrocarpa, even a small one. I planted the little palm in the following photos on the western side of the house in spring 2018. It struggled against the brutal FL sun as the king palms over it provided skimpy canopy. I surrounded it with container plants to shield it. But come this fall it has adapted and no longer needs constant protection. About a week ago it opened an intensely red new leaf and I recorded the process in daily photos.
Hey all! I have several 15 gallon Chambeyronia macrocarpa available, nice size! Asking $150 each, most are grown under 50% shade cloth in Newbury Park, CA (91320). These palms have never seen a greenhouse, they have been grown outside. Most are around 7-8 feet tall planted height. Pick up only, no shipping available. Text me at 805-813-3999 or PM if interested, thank you
After nearly a month with little to no rain and temps just this side of h_ll, yesterday we got clobbered with a thunderstorm that brought gale force wind, horizon to horizon lightning and nearly 5" of rain. This morning we ventured out to pick up debris and upright plants and pots. On the west side of our back yard jungle we discovered two of our trunking Chambeyronia macrocarpa broken in two. The smaller palm had been declining over time and I already figured out it was not long for this world. But the larger palm totally surprised me. It had broken in two places and inside both breaks showed evidence of rot and/or disease. Superficially, it had appeared healthy before the storm. For documentation, I took the following photos.
