Mystery Brahea - variegata?

Recommended Posts

What you guys think about this Brahea, it’s been like this for as many years as I can trace it back and grows steadily.

Apparently was like this when imported from Spain to the UK and has been cared for by a professional nursery.

Looks nice and healthy and has been fed regularly and kept under glass.

My thoughts are a total yellow variegation. 

Additionally, it was thought to be an armata but Edi from the FB page pointed out no spines which I didnt spot....


Opinions welcome.

It is isnt it...I spotted it about a year ago and left it, was kicking myself ever since. Went back on Wednesday and they still had it, I suspect people thought it was ill so it never sold.

I imagine it would almost glow among dark colored foliage.

That looks like a very sick Armata to me. Is the soil super acidic? Was the irrigation provided acidic?  Armata like higher ph soils or they won't uptake nutrients correctly and will look just like that poor thing.

Yep agree looks sick and yellow. I've had excellent results with plants that are yellow like that with liquid kelp or seaweed that stuff works wonders

たがこのブラエアだとわか、私が欲しいとさかもぼ実があります、欲しいは何年も色このようであり、着実に成長します。

英国から輸入された様式はどうやらこのように、英国の保養園英国世の話をしたおどた。

見た目は素晴らしく健康的で、ガラス様にありました。

私のありは完全な黄色の斑入りです。 

と、たはアルマタであるとありと思いました。


ご意見をお願いします。

I am very interested.
If you still have this palm, I want you to sell it.
Please.
