The one and only Lavoixia Macrocarpa!

Recommended Posts

Scott Cohen

I have 2 seedlings of Lavoixia (clinostigma) Macrocarpa available, one of the rarest palms on the planet. These are 100% real deal. Both are on the 3rd leaf and about 8 months old. 

$300.00 ea

I was lucky to see your post early and I've been drooling over Matts and Lens for the last 7 years..

Interesting, just for reference any idea on hardiness? I’m guessing 30-35*F?

So the price for these if someone asks is $150 per leaf!  You've already got a 50% ROI

Geez Bill, you've got all the good ones. How grows your Clinosperma bracteals?

So Bill, being the engineerand observer you are, what is your plan for care of these?   Throwing them outside in the shade and seeing what happens?  ...or something more to baby them?

Well, I have found that my location is very conducive to happy New Cal palms....IF I don't try to change it up... like stupidly leave some in my little greenhouse during last summers massive heat wave...even with all the doors open. :( Took out a large gem there :( But if I keep in filtered light outside and just pay some attention, they seem to do well. Mainly because I am probably over 90F less than 10 days a year and generally never below 34F either...then throw in that I tend to be 70-80%  or more humidity overnight and stay in the 40% range even during the day... they just putt along. My small bracteale is pushing a new spear as is my cerifera..B)

Those same conditions make things slow to germinate, if at all... thus I splurged on seedlings.

For that price you better hire a nanny to care for them while you're at work.

Jim, if you look in my post pic on June 11th, the larger Lavoxia (2nd from left) is the same one with the pen in it above.  That fully opened leaf is the one opening on June 11th. So to essentially grow an entire new leaf on a rare New Cal palm in 3 months!? I'm HAPPY! (Knock on my wooden head here...)  Based on my observations of Lens and Matt P's, if they are happy, they are relatively quick palms. :)

It's been a year now since the latest post. How are your Lavoixia's chugging along now!?
