So yours gives a salmon color? Mine is usually a dull maroon color. I expect they are quite variable, but alway thrilling!

Very nice! The perfect looking palm. Hope mine gets as nice as yours soon. Then avoids the dreaded “sudden death syndrome “ that these are sometimes known for. Quirky things to grow around here for some reason..

NICE!  Lets see what color mine turns once it is fully opened.

Glad to see this palm does so well for you in Ca., certainly a nice addition to any garden. Gotta love that colorful new leaf as well.

I'm confused,  is D. marojejyi the same as D. coursii, or are they different species?  Thanks for your comments

Darold,

I’m going from memory here, as there are some much more astute guys on the forum regarding Dypsis. There was some discussion that what we’re growing was in fact coursii, I think based on the fact that it seemed to be a smaller palm than the marojejyi. (So yes, they are described as different palms). But after close examination of the flowers (at Floribunda I presume), they were ID’d to be in fact marojejyi. Anyway, that’s my feeble brains recollection.

Yes Bret - I believe your "feeble brain" has the most recent appraisal of that situation correct. :) Which leaves me with the next question of "Does anyone have D. coursii in cultivation?"

It is a similar palm from much higher elevation - perhaps a great candidate for Calif. gardens.

If I could find the real deal I would be happy to be a beta site!  I think I could find room somewhere for it.  By the way, I had two that I acquired as marojejyi which suddenly died.  One here in Leucadia and one before that in Carlsbad.

I'm about to germinate a few of these, live in coastal Sydney, thought I'd give them a go. Anyone tried germinating these, any tips?

Beautiful, i couldn't get any seed to germinate, hard buggers. What high temps has it been exposed to?

Seen 106 F.  Filtered sun at best.  Always kept wet.  Seems to grow better when it gets cool/cold at night. Slows down mid Summer. Loves water.

These generally match my observations as well.

So none of your marojejyi are in full sun ever?  I have a primo spot that gets late afternoon sun.  Is that a "NO NO" for this palm?

You are closer to the beach than me, so you have a better chance at direct exposure.  Others might have theirs in more exposure than mine. Maybe why mine grows so slow. ha ha

It would be a perfect candidate for Albany I would think. I’ve been looking for it for a while to grow here in Melbourne.

Those looks great Tom and Matt for California I think the dense planting around it helps with the humidity keep us up on the progress of your palm how long has it been in the ground and how old do you think these are

Mine was planted out as a 3gl...a long time ago now.

seven or eight years is a guess.

It doesn't seem to grow tall for me but the base is getting fat.

Can't give it enough water.

I’ve germinated them before, and they even grew a bit through a perth winter but I think they were dead by late spring in Perth. Too hot despite full shade and humidity.

Wow, if that was a 2 leaf seedling 6 months ago then you need to come and foster my 4” plant for 6-8 months for me!  Mine is barely growing! 

Looks great John.

      I have noticed that the emergent leaf color on my Burretikentia koghiensis seems to be more colorful when they open in cooler times of the year, which also coincide with it never getting direct sunlight.  It is similar to the variations in my hibiscus flowers which open with deeper colors in the winter than during summer.  I haven't really paid much attention to see if my Chambeyronia hookeri exhibit this characteristic but thought I would solicit other comments about experience with colorful emergent leaves and variations dependent or correlated to temperature, time of year or sun exposure.

      It is interesting to see the diversity within a species.  I'm growing a couple of Encephalartos sclavoi.  Perhaps due to age, the older one shows very few spines on the leaflets, even though the younger one still has about a 6" caudex and it's leaflets are loaded with spines.  I hope the smaller one grows out of the spiny leaf and develops a leaf like the older one... I will get a reveal when the next flush finishes opening.  The other thing I doubt will change is that the older one opens with a colorful chocolate mocha fuzzy flush, while the younger spiny form has an attractive fuzzy green flush.  It's not hard to see which color is preferred.

      I remember hearing that Dypsis marojejyi is now Dypsis coursii but I notice the Palmpedia still lists Dypsis marojejyi -- but no longer has pictures.  Is there still a Dypsis marojejyi?
      Both of my "Dypsis coursii?" died. Has anybody succeeded with them in inland California?

      Thanks to palmislandRandy's great thread about the explosive growth of his D. prestoniana, plus Philippe's Bentinckia nicobarica series, I was inspired to go back and dig up photos from the past. This series of photos shows my one Dypsis prestoniana each year since planting.
