Dypsis canaliculata

Recommended Posts

Kim

Dypsis canaliculata shed a frond overnight, and begged to have a selfie taken. What a show-off!

(Photos have not been enhanced.)

Estimated length of frond, 16 ft.

D. canaliculata has elbowed aside D. prestoniana in my “favorite Dypsis” category, though both are impressive.

Geeze, that thing looks fantastic. It's really taken off in the last year or so.

So amazing!  I really wish these were still available, I made it to the island just a little too late to get one!  But maybe you will have seed soon?

Effin Hawaii. Is there any palm that doesn’t grow best in Hawaii? Even the dead part is more beautiful than anything that grows here.

Awesome looking palm Kim! I had a healthy one in my old garden, and it was one of my fastest 'large' Dypsis....can't wait for my two (ex Wal) canaliculatas to get a move-on and look like yours!

Would love to see an updated pic of yours Len. One of my favorite palms in your garden. Although I have many favorites there!

It's not a palm you hear mentioned often. If anyone is growing it, please post your photos.

This was planted in March 2010 from a large pot. Shown dead center in the photo below, just to the left of the holey boulder.

Ok. I'll be the one who asks: What are the dangling vines in the pic? It makes the palm look much more tropical tgan it already is.

Wow Kim, hope all is better after the Volcano shared its furry.  Had a friend who commuted to Honolulu airport for work on the weekends and 

wondered it he would have a home to go back to. on sundays ( jhe shared a picture of the lava from his kitchen)

 Lucky it spared him.

Those would be the "reins" -- sort of like zippers along the outer edge of the leaflets that droop down after the fronds are completely open. Many large Dypsis do this. Kinda cool. B)

I am happy to say that on my street, life has returned to normal with no major changes. It was kind of tense for a few months, but that is all behind us now. Many homes are gone. Many hopes are dashed. I am among the lucky ones, and I feel very very fortunate to be able to say that. Several on this forum have lost their lands.

Excellent Bump with your killer palm Nick!

Reminded me to update mine. Considering I thought a gopher killed it 5-6 years ago, its doing exceptionally well!!

Nick has the knack. :)

Kim - what a beauty you have grown.

I've had this palm for many years, sourced from collected seeds and never had a name (well never a correct name). As it has gotten bigger I have suspected it is a D. canaliculata. Anybody else wish to concur, or not?

@Dypsisdean....Well I can’t help you answer that question as I am not fortunate enough to have experience with palms quite this spectacular. But I just want to say wow. What an awesome palm. It truly amazes me at just how large and tall some palms can get before they even start to trunk. I guess that’s how you know you’re gonna have a monster.

I see what you did there Dean! Well I don't exactly have a great track record giving your palm ID's but in my opinion looks like a dead ringer for caniculata. On a side note I'm headed to he Big Island in October with my family and would love to tour your garden and go to dinner with you guys. I'll PM you the details of our trip.

Looks right (and great) to me!! Thankfully, I think I ended up with a spare that I will plant in the back yard as I did not realise quite how big these get and the one out front may have an argument with the power company!! :(

Let's change your UserName to Knick Knack. :)

I will be in Leucadia for Dorian's PSSC Palm Tour in a couple of weeks. Hope to see you and any other PSSC palm guys there. Maybe a Sushi Session (and visit to your garden) if you have time. We will be spending some time in Tahiti in Oct. Hopefully it won't be when you are here. Expect a PM.

Sure looks like Canaliculata to me.  Really nice palm Dean!  I wish there were still a few around here on the big island so I could add one to my garden.  I'll be patiently waiting for seed from your plant or Kims. 

See you in California at the PSSC meeting, I'll be in town as well, getting my Fallbrook house ready to go on the market.  I'm glad the PSSC tour ended up being when I was out there.  It's been many years since I've seen your old Encinitas garden.

I had an opportunity to stop by at my old garden here in Leilani Estates a little while ago and wanted to check out the Dypsis canaliculata there. A bit of background: on April 12, 2002 I made one of many shopping trips up to Floribunda Palms and among many other palm acquisitions that day I bought three little D. canaliculata in 4 inch pots. Tiny little things. Jeff gave me a special price: $5.00 for the three of them. One of them unfortunately died early on so I had two survivors and I gradually potted them up into bigger pots. One of them went into the ground (from a 15G pot) on July 28, 2008 in my old garden, and this is what it looks like today, September 19, 2019. The sibling plant is the one that Kim has in her garden and it was planted in March 2010. (First several photos in this thread). I'd say they are both doing extremely well! :)

And I just can't resist to post this photo, which I believe has been posted before but that was a long time ago. This was in March 2010, and here is Kim with her Dypsis canaliculata - JUST PLANTED! :) Check out the growth, 9.5 years worth - first several photos in this thread.
