For sale is a lot of 3 Zamia variegata seedlings I bought in a compot at a Palm Beach Palm/Cycad Sale. The mother is Zamia variegata but I can't be sure about the father. Zamia variegata comes from Central America and is threatened by habitat loss. My research indicates it is the only variegated cycad in the world.
Lot of 3 Zamia variegata sp/hyb seedlings = $20.00
Shipping = $10.00 No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI
TOTAL = $30.00

I need to find a new for 50+ Coccothrinax borhidiana seedlings I germinated. They are 6-9 months old and have 1 to 3 leaves and vigorous root systems. I received them from a fellow palm lover last year. I don't have a photo of the actual mother palm but my source told me the seeds came from her palm and no other Coccothrinax spp were nearby. However, I am posting a 2017 photo of one of my C. borhidiana (not the mother).
See summary below:
Coccothrinax borhidiana: 50+ seedlings @ $30.00 for the lot.
Shipping = $10.00 via Priority Mail. Sent without pots & soil, with roots wrapped in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil
Total = $40.00

Coccothrinax borhidiana from my garden (not the mother palm)
I looked and then looked some more and was unable to find any definitive resource on when it is best to start fertilizing seedling palms. Some people claim that seed nutrients are exhausted approximately 2 months after germination, but this may be species dependent or just plain wrong altogether.
I think a little background is warranted.
I started fertilizing some of my seedlings about 3-4 weeks ago, many of them single leafers, roughly between 3-4 months old. I generally use 180-day Nutricote on all my palms. Most of my seedlings are in 2.5" Anderson pots and are doing well. Or so I thought. As of last week, I lost about 10 seedlings, none of which were recent transplants or in any kind of obvious stress. Among the lost species, there were Areca macrocalyx, Pinanga caesia, Dypsis leptocheilos, and a single Cryosophila stauracantha. All were recently fertilized. At the same time, many other species are seemingly unaffected (e.g. Ptychosperma spp, Areca vestiaria, Calyptrocalyx spp.), as well as some of the aforementioned. At least so far.
To be fair, I may have overfertilized and some just couldn't handle it. So I did what any sane palm freak would do and started meticulously removing some of the fertilizer balls from my plants over the weekend. Great project, by the way.
Anyway, enough history. So what do you guys think? When should one start to fertilize? And how much? Are some species really more sensitive than others?
I have some Variegated Sabal palmetto seedlings available. These are just shy of a year old, germinated from seed that was collected from a wild specimen my boys and I stumbled upon near Weeki Wachee Springs that is displaying linear/striated variegation within the leaf segments (a rare form of variegation for Sabal palmettos from what I understand). They're currently thriving in 4.5" x 4.5" x 5" pots receiving around 5hrs of full midday sun. Seedlings currently holding 4-5 strap leafs and are 10"-12" in overall height.

I still have ~100-200 Sabal palmetto Lisa seedlings remaining from my mother palm's pre-Hurricane Irma crop and I've decided I don't want to repot them or grow them for the next 3-4 years to discover whether they are normal or mutant. So, I've decided to clear them out to new homes. Please bear in mind that when they are gone, I'll be totally out of seeds and seedlings. My mother palm aborted her 2018 crop and didn't flower at all in 2019. Whether Hurricane Irma is to blame I have no idea, nor do I know whether she will flower in 2020.
Clearance Cost: $0.50 per seedling. No minimum purchase but shipping will be a firm $8.00.
Shipping = $8.00 for any number of seedlings. Plants will be sent via Priority Mail. I will remove them from pot, wrap roots in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil.
