New Leaf Studies

Recommended Posts

Hillizard

After the spear pull from earlier this year (see link above), the discovery of a new leaf on my Jubaeopsis this week was a great relief. Best horticultural surprise I've had this month and a fitting post for this "new leaf studies" topic!

My potted Pritchardia hillebrandii (aka 'Loulu lelo') captured some of the first rain of the fall this morning where I live (it overwinters in my sunroom). Hope that means my frequent garden watering days can now start to taper off for a few months 'til next year! ;)

Pseudophoenix sargentii which always seems to open with a little "poof" at the top of the spear in the first photo.  Second photo is one of the new leaves on a young trunk coming up from a Dypsis lanceolata clump.

Nice lighting filtering through in your capture.

Your robusta looks like it has a couple of years on mine in the ground.  Can't wait to see them trucking.

Delving into the leaf study itself, it's quite interesting to see the stark contrast between a green and a golden coconut leaf.

On the golden, one can see how "pink" the intersection is where the leaflet starts at the rachis/petiole.

While the green, is just green. Beautiful in its own right of course.

Hello there,

Lower left - first strap (non-divided), lower right and middle left - second straps (divided)

How many fronds per year do your cocos produce?

Here's the newest leaf on my Hyophorbe lagenicaulis.  It's enjoying its summer outdoors, but in order to keep it alive it spends half the year in my sunroom. Got it originally from a local big box store, though this species is not really well suited to our local climate.

If you think your bottle palm is not suitable for your climate I live in Ohio LOL. I am so surprised how well my two are doing and like yours here soon I’ll have to put them in the greenhouse. 

 

Thank for showing this beautiful palm.

Here's a "front side" view of a new Arenga Micrantha frond just starting to open.  My "back side" photos were all blurry this morning, I'll have to get another one with the sun on them.
