Chamaedorea klotzschiana 1g seedlings x4

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

This tall, solitary Chamaedorea is native to rainforests of Mexico. It can reach up to 12' tall with a prominently ringed 1" diameter stem and green crownshaft. What immediately drew me to this elegant beauty was its crown of puckered leaves. It grows very well in SFL but my research indicates this species also does well in CA. I bought one female from Jeff Searle years ago and planted her in my backyard jungle where she has grown but produces crops of infertile seeds because I could not find a male palm. Over a year ago I germinated seeds of this species in hope of growing both sexes. After I set aside the plants I intend to keep, I have four that need new homes. I am offering two options for buyers.

Seedlings are currently in 1g pots. They range between 12-14" tall and 14-15" tall and are going pinnate.

OPTION 1 - Two Lots of two palms each

Price per palm = $12.00 ($24.00 per Lot)

OPTION 2 - One Lot of four palms

Price per palm = $10.00 ($40.00 per Lot)

Shipping = $12.00 for both Options. Palms will be sent without soil and pots and roots wrapped in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil.

Payment via Paypal

No shipping overseas. No shipping to HI.

Please PM me if you are interested.

Photos 1-7  are of the seedlings for sale.  Photos 7-11 are of my female C. klotzschiana (not the mother palm)

      Hello all.
      I have a Washingtonia filifera seedling that popped up for me. When should I put it under a grow light?

      I need to find a new for 50+ Coccothrinax borhidiana seedlings I germinated. They are 6-9 months old and have 1 to 3 leaves and vigorous root systems. I received them from a fellow palm lover last year. I don't have a photo of the actual mother palm but my source told me the seeds came from her palm and no other Coccothrinax spp were nearby. However, I am posting a 2017 photo of one of my C. borhidiana (not the mother).
      See summary below:
      Coccothrinax borhidiana: 50+ seedlings @ $30.00 for the lot.
      Shipping = $10.00 via Priority Mail. Sent without pots & soil, with roots wrapped in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil
      Total = $40.00
      Payment via Paypal
      No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI. PM me if you are interested

      After seeing and reading what @NOT A TA, about his experimenting with germinating Royal Palm, posted some nice pics of the seedlings and a cross section of a pot showing the roots. Some were sun germinated and some shade grown, being as I live in N.Y.S. the idea of shade grown caught my eye. I wrote to him and asked if he would consider selling me a few shade grown.  Well long story short, he agreed and also told me that he had some that he thought were much nicer than the ones in the pics, that he had utilized a different shade technique for germination. So, for just a few dollars and shipping, I received 16 very nice seedlings today via usps. I wanted to post pics before potting them but as soon as I had seen them and their great root system,I just wanted to get them potted. (3 days in a box was long enough) They were ready to stretch their legs, it went great. I know some people are against growing palms in clusters, especially royal palms, but for me 1). its easier, I have a lot of plants in the house throughout the winter. 2). these palms will remain potted throughout their life span, so when they do reach up to 7-8 ft, instead of looking odd with only a few fronds on them they will be much fuller giving an even more unique look to them. Of course no matter what I do grow I always maintain at least 1 or 2 singles.
      Right now they are in 6" pots, so they can continue to grow out more roots through the winter under 9000 lumens led integrated light tubes, in more or less a terrarium type of atmosphere, being kept warm and good air circulation.  As I said I cluster, there are 5 in 3 of the pots and of course the single as well, by spring they will be ready to be bumped up.  
      I do regret not taking pictures of the roots, but due to excitement(?) I just wanted to get them potted up and ready for their long future as potted trees, to be put on display eventually wherever they go when they outgrow their space here, but I'm sure that will be some time yet. 
      Three cheers to @NOT A TA on these beautiful little giants.

      I looked and then looked some more and was unable to find any definitive resource on when it is best to start fertilizing seedling palms. Some people claim that seed nutrients are exhausted approximately 2 months after germination, but this may be species dependent or just plain wrong altogether.
      I think a little background is warranted.
      I started fertilizing some of my seedlings about 3-4 weeks ago, many of them single leafers, roughly between 3-4 months old. I generally use 180-day Nutricote on all my palms. Most of my seedlings are in 2.5" Anderson pots and are doing well. Or so I thought. As of last week, I lost about 10 seedlings, none of which were recent transplants or in any kind of obvious stress. Among the lost species, there were Areca macrocalyx, Pinanga caesia, Dypsis leptocheilos, and a single Cryosophila stauracantha. All were recently fertilized. At the same time, many other species are seemingly unaffected (e.g. Ptychosperma spp, Areca vestiaria, Calyptrocalyx spp.), as well as some of the aforementioned. At least so far.
      To be fair, I may have overfertilized and some just couldn't handle it. So I did what any sane palm freak would do and started meticulously removing some of the fertilizer balls from my plants over the weekend. Great project, by the way.
      Anyway, enough history. So what do you guys think? When should one start to fertilize? And how much? Are some species really more sensitive than others?
