Surprise - Maybe This Time

Recommended Posts

Dypsisdean

Always a nice surprise of color when a frond falls off. But this time there were other surprises. This is the second year of an attempt at seed. First year was a no-go.

Amazing. You can see why so many go to great lengths to try and grow this palm. With emphasis on 'try'...

Not kidding. Thanks for the correction. I can't grow Dictyocaryum either.

Well - almost a year has passed and I finally have my first flowers. It never got this far before, so looking good.

Now - how long do I have to wait for ripe seeds?

Wow Dean. So beautiful. It’s palms like these that get people hooked and possibly even make them move to Hawaii.

Not sure what caused it's demise, but springtime cark a year ago. Might have been the main root I damaged was too much loss..

I saw this species in habitat in Ecuador in 1996.  If my memory is correct the fruits will be quite large, with a bright red epicarp.  This will make the color overdose even more extreme! :greenthumb:

If it goes well, I should have plenty.

And I don't believe we have met, have we? You might have to come by soon. :)

Good to know Darold. Since large seeds seem to take longer to grow and ripen, this might be one of the longer start to finish process there is. It is already a year to this point from first indications it was going to flower.
