Lepidorrhachis...Large !!

Recommended Posts

Darold Petty

I am selling the last of my legal plants exported as seedlings by the Lord Howe Island nursery.  I have grown this plant from a small seedling, outdoors all year round.  It has been in this pot for two years, and should be ground planted soon !  The palm is about 2 inches diameter and about 36 inches high above the pot.

I will be driving to San Diego this week-end and I can offer delivery anywhere along the way on Saturday, Dec. 8th, or in the San Diego area on Sunday, Dec. 9th.  Which day depends on the buyer's location.

The price is $400.  As an incentive to sweeten the deal I will include a large start from my cloud forest Anthurium, collected from Loja, Ecuador at an elevation of 8000 feet.

  Send me a PM if interested.  I prefer PayPal for payment, and can also accept cash upon delivery.  I would prefer that this palm go to a coastal garden, with cooler and more humid conditions.

  Thanks for looking !

Joe, this is the last one. Period.  No one else can make such an offer.

  I have an in-ground plant that may make seed in the next 2 or 3 years, but that would be about 15 years behind this palm. :)

Who won between Josh and Joe? Did you lock them in a room and only one man came out? :)

I had reserved one from Darold before he posted this last one for sale. With our recent rains and expecting to rain off and on this week, seemed like a good time to plant it!! Here's hoping and Thanks Darold!!
