Send your requests, and I'll let them accumulate for a week, maybe two, depending on the level of interest, then send out envelopes to requesters all at once.

This here seed thang's a crapshoot.

Oh yeah.

Try try again and you'll be a winner if you get one to sprout. I've had spotty germ rates.

Mailed out some envelopes yesterday.

Some to Texas, Florida, NY, UK, Suisse, and to two SAs: Saudi Arabia and South Africa!

Glad to share the palmy love. Recipients should have gotten a PM, if you didn't let me know so I can double check that I didn't leave you off the list by mistake.

Happy palm growing, and spread the gospel of Palmy Love!

I decided to try the “decapsulation method” discussed earlier in this thread. And wouldn’t you know it, 6 days later, we have an emerging root!!!!

I think Dave is intentionally ignoring this topic.  He's trying to avoid spreading around more seed, you know, to avoid the FrankenBaheApocalypse where they spread everywhere and take over the world after becoming sentient.  Either that, or I've been watching too many scifi movies.  :D

I sent a PM back in Dec.  Figured if another batch became available I'd get some going, save one for myself, and set the others free to take over S FL and start DoomsFrankenBraheaApocalypse from this corner of the country.

I think I'm out for the time being, but there's a big crop coming along, likely this summer.

EVERYONE

I'm out of Brahea hybrid seeds for now.

I'll advise in a new thread when they're available, and ask that you send me requests then.

Whoo hoo!

We're making a serious palm nut out of you!

Did you do the "scarification" method?

Might try that.

A little update on our "Franken-Brahea" .  Seeds arrived in late November 2018.  We used the "scarification" method, and by 12/13/18, we had roots popping!  Around 1/2/19, the emerging palm broke through the surface saying, "Hello World"!  

These pictures were taken yesterday, 4/9/19.  Nice little palm seedlings, planted in 1gal containers.  Most have only two strap leaves, but a couple have three already.  Leaves have a blueish hue, similar to that of a Butia, and roots are wandering out of the bottom of the pots.  

I am curious to see how these will fair over the next 9 months, as the Central Florida climate will only get wetter and hotter...but for now, I am really excited about this hybrids growth!!!!

Hi Brahea growers,

these are my Franken babies about a year later. They are definitely starting to show some silver! (The first one from the left is B. aculeata for comparison)

      I recently acquired several different Tillandsias to add to my collection.  I've included a few in the photo below.  Does anyone know the cold hardiness of the non-native forms and hybrid?  I'm thinking they aren't as hardy as our native Spanish moss, but figured I'd check if anyone on here knows.  For now, I plan to treat them like I do for my other non/less cold hardy Tillandsia species.

      From left to right: Tillandsia usneoides thick form, Tillandsia usneoides native form (for comparison purposes), Tillandsia usneoides super fine form, and Tillandsia recurvata x usneoides

      Hello all, I have some 1g brahea armata I for sale. More than than I could plant here. These are locally collected and about 18 months old from seed. Thanks

      This is one specimen of the Cyrtostachys sp. 'Hybrid' growing in Jeff Searle's yard, as we toured it during the traditional 'Post Tour' after the Fall 'Ganza a couple weeks ago. I was looking through my photos and thought it could use its own topic before the regular topic is started. This is one of the more unique color forms I have seen among the hybrid complex and it is quite impressive when you see it in person. The colorful trunks are smooth and very glossy and the crownshafts are a perfect shade of orange-yellow. The tallest main stem was carrying an inflorescence, but it was difficult to photograph from the ground and not much in the way of detail could be discerned. To sum it up, it was weird looking. We could not tell if it had flowered, was flowering or was going to flower. A tall ladder was going to be needed for a better inspection and more photos. For now though, it was total eye candy.
      - A view from the patio with Jim Glock for scale. The tour had just started and the palm was the second or third stop.

      - Closer to the base and the diverse span of color. The clump was all suckers and no stolons. The trunks look like they had been air-brushed with paint and later buffed to a high shine. Since this palm took 29ºF (-1.7ºC) without any damage when it was a small plant, I wonder what it could handle now.
