Fresh Palm Seed Offerings From Faulkner's Palms.

Recommended Posts

cfkingfish

Faulkner's Palms will now be offering fresh seeds from Florida and around the world as part of the business. So often I found in the United States that there was not one place to get a bunch of different species of palm seeds. Fresh seeds are key to getting good germination, so here is a list of what we have to start, and it will only build from here. Prices are 25/$10 or 100/$20 plus shipping unless otherwise noted. Also, if you would like to get three species of 25 each, that would also be $20. You can contact me here, or email me at faulknerspalmsllc@gmail.com. Check my Facebook business page for weekly updates on new seed availability.

Also note - we ship internationally as well.

Thanks!

Christian, what is the source of the Serenoa repens 'Super Silver'? Photo of mother? What makes it superior to the silver saw palmettos all over SFL?

Thanks

"Super Silver" is a name given to the ecotype of Silver Serenoa native to the coastal areas of St. Lucie and Martin County, notably Hutchinson Island. These seed come from an island that imported them 25 years ago and there are no green Serenoa present. I will upload a picture of the parent plants, they appear to grow more robust and a little bit faster as well.

I'd love to see a photo. I know there is a population of silver saw palmettos in NW GA that are supposedly spectacular but seldom produce seeds.

I've found the silver Serenoa I grew from seeds much less robust than the green and prone to rot. But maybe that reflects my palm growing skills not the quality of the material. Almost everyone has a species that gives them fits. I'd love to try a variety so silver it glistens in the sun.

No, locally collected on the West coast of FL. Have seen great germination rates in the past.

Just wanted to comment that of the 10 Pseudophoenix vinifera I got from you 5 have already germinated.  50% germination in one month - fantastic.

A little weekly update on availability:

New:

Rhapidophyllum hystrix (collected in Georgia and Alabama) - 25/$15, 100/$35, 1000/$285

Sabal minor "Cherokee" - This palm grows way above the fall line, north of Atlanta and Birmingham in a natural 7b climate. This is one of the coldest climates for any palm in the world, if not the coldest natural habitat. These are fresh seeds ready to go. 25/$8, 100/$18, 1000/$60.

Livistona alfredii - something I have been searching for at least 13 years for. Native to far Northwest Western Australia, this has been somewhat of a hard seed to find for me. The climate in its habitat is a hot desert with summertime temps reaching over 115F, and it can get chilly here as well. The climate is probably similar to Cairo, Egypt or Phoenix, just without frosts. This palm does not seed every year and can often be difficult to reach. I will attach some pictures for reference, as there is very little on the internet about it. This will grow in the subtropics, including Florida where I have seen one plant doing fairly well. I have seen it take 23F with no damage as a juvenile. These are beautiful, fresh seeds that are not hard to grow, just treat them like any desert palm. It is probably the bluest of the Livistonas as well. $1.75 each or 10/$15. 

Feel free to email me at faulknerspalmsllc@gmail.com, or you can PM me here. 

Thanks!

Upon some further thought (and before anyone purchased any seed), I decided to drop the price on the Livistona alfredii seed to $1.75 each or 10/$15. I can't seem to edit my post so hopefully anyone interested will scroll down.

Absolutely stunning livistona Christian.

Best looking Livistona in my opinion.

Even hard to find for us Australians!

Thanks!

Forgot to add that I do have Ptychosperma schefferi - 25/$8, 100/$18, 500/$55

I will also try and add a list of germinated seeds once I sort out what is sprouting.

Another small update on seed:

I have received a larger quantity of Livistona alfredii, and now able to offer in wholesale quantities. 

100 seed - $75

500 seed - $300

This is really an excellent palm for both semi-arid, arid, and subtropical climates (and it's blue!). It grows well at Nong Nooch too, a tropical savanna climate I believe?

PM me or email me at faulknerspalmsllc@gmail.com if interested.

      Hello, I am wondering if anyone has any pure Archontophoenix cunninghamiana seedlings for sale that can be mail ordered (shipped) here. I don't want a lot, only about two or three at most since I will be keeping them in pots.

      Hi all,
      I’m currently living in the UK, but will be emigrating to Australia within the next 2-3 months. 
      I’m looking for pure seeds of Allagoptera, Jubaeopsis, Lytocaryum, Parajubaea sunkha, Parajubaea cocoides, and hybrid seeds (in any combination) of Allagoptera, Butia, Jubaea, Jubaeopsis, Lytocaryum, Parajubaea, and Syagrus to take with me, or contacts in Australia who have mature specimens of the above.
      Appreciate most palm enthusiasts who produce F1 hybrids often won’t offer seeds as it makes more sense to sell the seedlings/plants, but I’m also open to F2’s, F3’s etc. 
       
      Many thanks

      The information in this current newsletter from Silverhill Seeds was discussed at last year's NorCal Palm Society meeting in Berkeley. It's a very tragic event that adds to previous posts by Palmtalk folks regarding the many challenges of collecting seeds "in the wild" in some locations. I thought it was something to share with a wider audience in this forum.

      So we got down to 12°F a few days ago and now it has warmed up and we are currently in the low 60s and yesterday was in the low 60s as well. My Butia bought simply as a "Pindo Palm" from Lowes in the Spring shows little damage so far. The only damage I can see is a bit of browning on parts of the oldest leaves and a spot here or there on the "middle aged" leaves. The newest ones look fine so far. I will keep everyone updated, but I expected to see more damage and sooner. One of my other smaller ones got burned pretty badly, about 60% defoliation. As for the one that is showing little signs of damage, I must have gotten a pretty tough one. None of my palms were given any protection. This is just Southwest of Richmond, VA.

      Hello all,
      I recently acquired four Adonidia merrillii seeds, and five Leucothrinax morrisii seeds. I have NEVER tried to grow palms from seed before, but have always wanted to try it. I confirmed that they are viable using the "float test", and now I am attempting the "ziploc bag" technique; the Adonidia seeds are each in their own baggie, and all five Leucothrinax seeds are in the same bag. The soil they're in is a mixture of a pearlite-based mix and the Miracle-gro "Cactus Palm, and Citrus" soil (I also grow cacti and citrus). I added some water to each, and they are now under a heating pad in a tray. I am using a thermometer to monitor their temp, and they have been sitting at around 80-90 degrees since they were placed there.
      Given that I have never grown palms from seed before, I am open to any suggestions or recommendations as to what I can expect or should do. I know that palms can take time to germinate, so I am hoping to see results by the end of the month, or at least before the end of winter (I am in NE Ohio, zone 6b, so it's cold outside right now). The Adonidias were planted on the 1st, and the Leucothrinax were planted on the 6th.
      Again, any recommendations or tips are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
