Coccothrinax borhidiana & Miraguama ‘havanensis’

Recommended Posts

NatureGirl

Have lots of C. Borhidiana and miraguama v ‘havanensis’ seeds ripe.  These two palms are only about 12 ft apart, so 

Expect Some Hybrids. But, really, I’ve  grown these for yrs and the hybrids are really nice, and faster growing. $5/50 or $9/100 mix and match if u want. Plus $4 US shipping

      I have a limited number of ripe seeds from my only surviving Sabal etonia. This species is native to central and north central Florida. It is a dwarf palm with an underground stem, although rarely it will form a stem up to 6' tall. My mother palm shows strong dwarf traits - it is only 3' tall and 3-4' wide although it is nearly 12 years old and has been flowering for the past 3-4 years. It usually produces a crop of 200-300 seeds, sometimes fewer. Its 2' wide leaves are less costapalmate than most other Sabals, similar to Sabal minor except they are light green instead of blue green. S. etonia has larger fruit than S. palmetto. It is coldhardy to zone 8, marginal in 7. Like all Sabals It loves heat and sun.
      See summary below
      Sabal etonia: 50 seeds @ $10.00 for the lot
      Shipping = $5.00 via First Class Mail in a padded envelope. 
      Total = $15.00
      Payment via Paypal
      No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI. PM me if you are interested

      Mother Palm

      For sale is One Lot of 40 seeds from my 3 Chamaedorea hooperiana palms. This is a clustering palm with stems that can reach 12' tall. Cham hooper is native to the state of Veracruz in Mexico where it grows in tropical rain forest at 3,000-5,000'. It is better known in CA and although you might expect it to prefer a mediterranean climate, it thrives for me in the heat and humidity of FL. I grew the parent palms (2 female, 1 male) from seeds and planted them in shade on the east side of the house. There they have grown to maturity and not given me a lick of trouble.
      See summary below
      Chamaedorea hooperiana: 40 seeds @ $8.00 for the lot.
      Shipping = $5.00 via First Class Mail in a padded envelope. 
      Total = $13.00

      This evening I picked 50 ripe seeds from one of the Chamaedorea tepejilote in my jungle and have more on the way. I grew the mother palm from seeds I received in 2008/09 and planted many of them a few years later. See summary below:
      Chamedorea tepejilote: 50 ripe seeds = $10.00 for the lot. I will send them uncleaned to speed them to their buyer.
      Shipping = $5.00 via first class mail within the US. No shipping overseas.
      Total Due = $15.00
      Payment via Paypal. PM me if you are interested
      Photos below. My jungle is densely planted so getting shots of the mother palm were difficult.

      So last year I got some Franken Brahea seeds (among other seeds) courtesy of Dooms Dave. In March 2018 I used the baggie germination method and the Chamaedorea radicalis came right up. The others didn’t, not surprising, some things take longer to germinate. 
      In May/June of 2018 we moved into a different house and I took the bags and bottom-heating pad and got them set up in the basement of the new place. Well, life takes hold of you and we’re living out of boxes for weeks while getting things set up while still trying to work, take care of kids etc. and my bags full of palm seeds did not get adequate attention. Even within the bags, the soil dried out and I didn’t notice until they were all bone dry....bone dry. I’ve ruined seeds before by letting them dry up so I knew I had blown it. I’m too busy to mess with it so I left them and turned off the bottom heat.
      Imagine my surprise when in July 2018 (that’s 16 months after placing them in the bag and probably nearly a year after they dried up) I see palm sprouts galore inside the bag, one even pierced the bag, the rest were bent over at the top of the sealed bag!
      I can’t believe it, I’m lucky I noticed them, they could have died from lack of light, let alone water. They are all now safely potted up. Needless to say, after the miracle I quickly went and re-hydrated the remaining bags of seeds, who knows. Might get lucky again.
