Chambeyronia macrocarpa 'Watermelon' Seeds

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

My largest Chambeyronia macrocarpa is producing a bodacious crop of seeds. This Chambey is 25-30' tall and is one of the coveted 'Watermelon' varieties with streaks of yellow on its trunk and crownshaft. This palm is large and robust with leathery dark green leaves. But its most astonishing feature is that new leaves open dark red to crimson before gradually fading to green, giving it the epithet "Flamethrower Palm." It is a spectacular, eye-catching palm from New Caledonia that is easy growing here in FL, unlike many other New Caledonia species. But it may be harder to find in the future as I've read that New Caledonia is cracking down on export of its native palms and seeds. If what I read is true, in the future only domestically grown seeds of this desirable species may be available. I have germinated a number of Chambeys from seeds and found their large seeds (~1" wide by 1.5" long) germinate easily and seedlings grow robustly. Now is your time to try this awesome species.

Chambeyronia macrocarpa 'Watermelon' seeds: $1.00 each (minimum purchase 15 seeds)

Shipping: $5.00 in padded envelope (seeds are large)          No shipping overseas. No shipping to HI

Payment via Paypal

Please, let me know how to go about paying for 30 seeds with Pay Pal using credit card.  Is it possible to pay by check?

NOTICE: In less than a day I have received multiple requests for 170+ Chambeyronia seeds. Great news......except I don't have that many seeds left to ripen. I have set up a waiting list in the order I received each request and am in the process of notifying each person. I would like each person to have at least a partial order but I don't yet know what my final seed total will be. Seeds are ripening at the lightning rate of 3-5 per day. I'm not inclined to climb a ladder to count what's left.

Anyway, as of now, 6:15 p.m. Sunday, December 16, I am calling a moratorium of seed requests. Thanks for everyone's interest.

That will be late this year - maybe. I'm not keeping waiting lists that long. I will post a topic then. Thanks for the interest.

      Coccothrinax scoparia is native to hills in Hispaniola - Haiti & Dominican Republic - where it grows to 36' tall in calcareous soil. Its leaves are a deep, dark green on top, glistening silver beneath. Although most Coccothrinax spp have yellow or gold hastulas, the hastula of scoparia leaves is green. I grew my mother from seeds I obtained over 10 years ago. It is now one of the tallest Coccothrinax in my Caribbean Garden and one of the best looking and fastest growing I have. It is totally hardy in zone 10a and maybe in microclimates of 9b. It is not fussy about soil, is drought tolerant once established but grows faster with regular water. See summary below:
      Coccothrinax scoparia seeds: 50 @ $10.00 for the lot        100 @ $15.00 for the lot

      My older Chambeyronia sp 'Houailou' puts out new leaves that are salmon colored. Today I found this dark crimson leaf wonder on my smaller 'Houailou' in the front yard. Enjoy.

      I have a pair of Cycas thouarsii which I pollinated with pollen from some of my male Cycas thouarsii back in late 2018.  I am curious how long it takes for the seeds to mature and if they should fall off the plant when they are "ripe".  The photos below are just about 15 months apart with the early photos taken of the plants and seeds in November 2018 and the other shots current from February 2020.  I know it is easy to determine when to harvest seeds from Encephalartos as the cones starts to fall apart.  What is the best indication for Cycas thouarsii and any input on how long that takes?  I assume there also could be a little variation in how long it takes based on climate (faster in habitat and slower in my cooler climate).

      Question about Bismarkia seeds.
      I recently bought 200 fresh fruits. I removed the fruit and scrubbed the seeds. 190 were fine and sunk in bucket of water. The question I have 10 seeds have odd nodules on them... is this bugs? Just seed secreting? should i bin them? Any help is appreciated.

      I have around 50 Eucalyptus dalrympleana seeds that I had in the fridge cold stratifying for at least eight weeks now (maybe longer, I forgot exactly) in a damp paper towel. The seeds are super tiny. I was going to germinate these in a little closed container just on top of some moist soil. I heard they can germinate fine at tempatures around 65°F. Does anyone have any advice about germating these? I never germinated Eucalyptus seeds before.
