Coccothrinax crinita brevicrinus - 50 Seeds One Lot Only

Recommended Posts


For sale is one lot of 50 seeds of Coccothrinax crinita brevicrinus from my mother palm. For lovers of cutesy names this is commonly called the "Short-haired Old Man Palm." This endangered subspecies of the commoner Coccothrinax crinita is native to seasonally wet grasslands and hills of western Cuba. Its trunk is covered by short hair-like fibers. I have both subspecies and find that brevicrinus is easier to grow and less finicky. It has flowered and set seeds for years while my largest crinita has never flowered. Fruit and seeds are large by Coccothrinax standards and growth is moderate. It has large, relaxed dark green leaves.

Coccothrinax crinita brevicrinus: 50 seeds @ $10.00 for the lot. One Lot Only

Shipping = $5.00 in padded envelope. No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI

TOTAL = $15.00

Payment via Paypal. PM me if you are interested.

      I have a pot of 7 strap-leaf year-old seedlings from my Coccothrinax crinita brevicrinus mother palm. It is rarer than the desired Coccothrinax crinita crinita but I have found it much easier to grow here in Cape Coral. Both subspecies are native to Cuba.

      Hello everyone! For the last few months I have noticed that the ground around my royal and sago palms seems to always be wet. I pulled the rock back and tried to determine if maybe its a lwak in the irrigation and I don't believe it is as i found the main irrigation line and there is no leak. 
      Could this be caused by the amount of water I give my royal and Sago? It just seems odd that it is always wet, and even after leaving the soil uncovered from the rocks, its still pretty damp. 
      Any ideas?

      Hello everyone. A few weeks ago I posted about my landscaper possibly planting my Cuban royal a little too deep. I left it alone and last night I noticed the base of the trunk is soft when I push into it and can see small cracks. I immediately removed excess soil as you can see where the original soil line was from when the landscaper planted it. I was trying to avoid the trunk flare where it splits apart the trunk. Is this what is happening? Am I too late? Thank you for your help.

      While vacationing on Grand Cayman I came across  two potted  Coccothrinax crinita. I was duly impressed. However I was totally flabbergasted as I counted twenty more as I walked further up the street.
