Kentiopsis piersoniorum

Recommended Posts

Daryl

I just went outside to take a photo of my young Kentiopsis piersoniorum to compare to the recent post on K.oliviformis and found this little fella enjoying my palms too!

Paul, just a tree snake. Bill, here is another photo...as you can see it is still a small palm...slow from seed! Hopefully it will speed up once it is fully established in the ground.

Nice tree!  I have one of these.  A bit slow but no problems throught the winter.  I have a Hedyscepe about 5 feet away and it had some burn from this last frost/freeze we had.  No problems with the Kentiopsis.

Kentiopsis is a beautiful genus. Rather tricky to grow as I'm finding out for myself.

tks for the comments. This palm got flattened about 18 months ago by an animal in the middle of the night (probably a kangaroo) It ended up laying flat on the ground and I thought I'd lose it. However, after some propping up, it has made a full recovery, but is still soooo slow! I will charge up the camera and take a snap in the next day or two.

regards,

Daryl

Sure is Bill...it has been really slow though...probably getting over its near-death experience! Plus I think it is in too much shade these days...maybe time to dig it up and put it in a sunny spot...
