Palms That Grow On Slopes

Recommended Posts

PalmTreeDude

What are some palm species that grow on slopes on the sides of hills or mountains? I know that Chamaerops humilis grows on slopes in Southern Europe and Rhapidophyllum hystrix can be seen growing on the slopes of some of the hilly areas in the Deep South U.S. What other palms tend to grow on slopes naturally? Any pictures to share?

Alexanders are hillside colonizers here in East Hawaii.  Intro from Queensland, long since naturalized.  Someone was telling me the other day that they were introduced for their ability to prevent slope erosion.  Dunno if that is true, but all the Alexander hillsides i know of around here are intact!

      Hello everyone, I was looking at an app called iNaturalist, which is an app that lets you post and look at observations of plants and animals around the world, and I typed in Cocos nucifera and found this post in northern Morocco by the Mediterranean Sea. Does anyone know any information about this? I thought that it would be too cool in the winter for them there.

      Is this normal? I noticed the oldest frond on my new Washingtonia robusta that I got from Lowes (really cheap) was dying in a weird way, it is almost like the way some diseases start in palms. But the thing is it was like this for a few weeks now, I think I am just being paranoid. Does this look normal? Maybe it was just damaged so it is dying like this? I just am hoping this doesn’t have some disease.

      I received some Chamaedorea radicalis seeds about one week ago, and have had them soaking in water since (changing water out, of course). I’m about to sow them but I noticed there is a thin looking layer of shell or something around the actual seed, should I try to peel that off or is it fine if it stays on?

      I just bought my first Dypsis lutescens (clump) at a local nursery to use as a potted plant. What are some things I should know about these? How fast do these grow? I saw some big ones in the nursery that had full sized trunks. Would it be possible to separate some of the smaller ones from the edge of the clump without hurting the others?

      So I have some Leucothrinax morrisii seeds that are finally germinating and I have a few questions about them. First, are these remote germinaters? Also, how long does it take for them to root well into a pot so I can set them outside (when it starts warming up)? I like to put my seedlings outside as soon as a can but wind sometimes makes the newly potted up ones tilt sideways, and it turns into a constant battle of me carefully repositioning them.
