I apologize for the mess but I have no time at the moment for maintenance. I keep my sensitive seedlings in here, the rest are outside. Most are from seed (I should start a thread on that topic):

Nice collection!  I love to germinate seeds myself and yours mostly look very good!  I really like the Pritchardia pacifica and the Chambeyronia macrocarpa.  I was able to germinate a P. pacifica a few years ago, but unfortunately I neglected to notice a fungal issue in time to save it when it was still quite young. :(  I hope to try again soon.

P. Pacifica needs stability. I kept mine inside during the winter in previous years. No problems with humidity or such. Just use a very well draining medium and all should be fine. This winter was the first year in the greenhouse with a minimum of around 12C. Came through unscathed.

Here's an updated pic of the Chambi with open leaf.

Wonderful greenhouse! I'm envious of all the happy seedlings you have - isn't it rewarding to grow palms from seed?

I have two small Chambeyronia, the oldest of which has been in the ground for about 3 years and is still rather small. It just opened up a brand new leaf, and although I've never had cold damage on them, this summer I had sun damage from a sudden spike in temperature that occurred last month. I think that I will have to find a way to shade it more as it grows. I'll try to snap a picture of it later today.

Hi Missi, the 2 magnificas I've had for quite a while (not grown from seed), and they haven't grown on bit. I repotted them in April because they were in a bad soil mix, but no change. I hope they wake up at some point :(. The Joeys (also not from seed) are actually growing nicely, both pushing up a nice big leaf. Not sure if I should bring these inside for the winter or leave them in the greenhouse. They're quite cold tolerant in my experience. The magnificas, not so much I think.

Hi Jdiaz31089, thank you for the comment. You'll notice that some of the seedlings are a bit burnt. The neighbour from across the street cut down most of his trees this winter and in combination with the extreme summer we've had, some of them got a bit fried. Didn't notice in time, and the damage was done before I could get up extra shade (hence the brown cloth at the front in the first picture). They all seem to be recovering nicely though. Eagerly waiting for those pictures.

The Chambeyronia has gotten huge. You have a great greenhouse setup. May I suggest you concentrate on Hawaiian Pritchardias? P. pacifica is oh so beautiful and common but so cold/cool sensitive. I have 3 in the ground that start to look like garbage if nights drop below 50-55F. My sole P. remota and P. thurstonii are pristine. HI Pritchardias reward their extra expense and rarity with easier care and less grief.

      Hi all,
      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.
