So some of the plants from some time ago are now starting to make their first divided leaves. Time for some Amsterdam microclimate experimenting...

Hello Kai,

these are already big :rolleyes:, mine are just little seedlings but maybe because they have been kept inside with low light and cool temperatures.

The second bunch of seeds started to germinate... Many more little C. radicalis to come :yay:.

Thanks Dave for sending....

Hi Dave,

first picture are seedlings from the first batch, second one from second batch. The ones from first batch are attached to my biggest radicalis (looks like trunking)

The others are still down in the cellar and it's hard to find them within all the other palm seedlings.

One small group will be planted out in spring.

Here is a pic of my first flowering C. radicalis!  Just a little less than 2 years from receiving seed to flowering - I think it likes my slightly alkaline soil.  Thanks @DoomsDave !

C. radicalis on left in photo and C. microspadix to the right.  The microspadix is nearly 2 years older and has not flowered but has produced a few offsets.

You're welcome!

C. rads have been the biggest and bestest palm giveaway so far. Easy to sprout, no real pitfalls.

I have about 40 of these so I thought I would try one in the ground this year and protect it this winter. The one in the ground has grown more leaves than the ones I have in pots. I will be really surprised if I can keep this alive through an Ohio winter but I have been growing a sago palm in ground the past couple years so we will see.

My C. Radicalis is still looking good in southern Ohio zone 6b.  A really mild winter here so far which helps a lot.

Hi Dave,

here is a picture of some young C. radicals grown from your seed. They are now planted out close to the house (protection in winter time).

The damaged leaves will soon be cut of. Currently its around 15cm high. They don't grow that fast here in pots.

Hope they grow well and a little faster now.

That first flower must have been minor league - same palm today with a MAJOR league flower!  Must be at least 3 times longer.  None of the other 9 radicalis I planted at the same time have flowered yet.  The microspadix is bigger too and starting 3 flower stalks (first time flowering).

I know it's an old offer, but I'd been interested in seeds or plants of Chamaedorea radicalis if you still have them.

Do those bottles have drain holes? If not, move palms to regular draining pots. Your potting mix looks black and mucky and overwatered/underdrained. Your palms need a coarse, very well draining soil mix. See @Pal Meir's posts of recommended European potting mixes or contact him directly. Don't overwater them, don't let them sit in trays of water.

The top inch is coco coir were i sew them in, that way i dont have flies in winter when germinating the seeds. The bottom is 50%coco coir 50%potting soil.

The bottles have holes in them.

I'll check on that mix jou recommend, thx!

There's lots of seeds, ask and you will get.

Anywhere in the world.

Hi Dave,

Your seeds project is an inspiration

 I was hoping these seeds would be a piece of cake but im having trouble bringing them out of dormancy. I soaked the 3-4 days, I think. Cleaned everything loose off them. They are being very gradually dried out and kept warm, between waterings.  The ones I checked on still pass the crush test.

Are they super temp-sensitive? I think ive let them get below 80 at night and occasionally into the 90's daytime. You said between 80-90. Could it be that?

Thanks again,

Ben

When did I send them?

They can take months, be patient. If I can sprout them, you can!

Haha. You are too modest. 

First batch arrived August 12. You sent me two batches since the first one got lost in the mail. But they eventually both got to me.  So there is still hope. Good.

Thanks for the reply.

Dave's right.  My first batch from 2 years ago took about 3 months to germinate.  I started a second batch in January that took 6 months, but they didn't get up the the temps you mentioned until May.  Some palm seeds are quick, most aren't.  I had some Brahea brandegeei seeds take 13 months @95°F and Acrocomia aculeata take 2 years!  Hurry up and wait!  LOL!

Keep trying!

You're not a "loser" if they don't sprout as expected.

Or, maybe I'm a serial loser's loser?

KEEP TRYING expletive.

      Peachy is on the move but most of the stuff here is too big to take with me.  As the entire place is being bulldozed I can't bear to see the palms destroyed, so anyone with a spade is welcome to come and help themselves. There is a 2 week deadline however.

      DoomsDave sent me some seeds and im germinting(or attempting to) Chamadorea radicalis in my bedroom. Soaked the seeds for a few days and planted not long ago. Now its watering and waiting lol!
      House is low 70s so might be slow going, might invest in a warming pad.

      Greetings Palmers!

      I'm helping my significant other move back to the baked frozen tundra, and so I will be in Florida next week.

      I'll have some free time here and there (I think). Is there anything going on in the Ft. Lauderdale area on or around the weekend of the 21-22nd?

      Obviously I'll be filling my pockets with every seed, nut and pod I can get my hands on. Are there any palm-centric things I should make sure to see before I drive back to corn country?

      Cheers!

      -Erik
