G'day all, just wondering what people think about the little coconut I've got as against the big one. The big one is a golden Malay dwarf, they are quite common in northern Western Australia and mine started out about the same size as the small one I have, I planted it 8 years ago now. The small one I bought about 3 years ago, does anyone think it may be a different variety? The reason I ask is that it is much slower growing than the large one, it is also much greener, the large one has a yellow stem to each frond and always has done even when it was small whereas the small palm has a green stem. The small one has never really been looked after over winters as against the big one which has always been protected in some way, up until this winter, yet the small one always seems to sail through winter almost unscathed. The small one I bought from a backyard nursery in the next suburb across from mine, they have lots of tropical plants they sell regularly but I don't know where they get their stock from. Anyway, curious to know what anyone thinks, any opinions are appreciated, cheers.
2 pics of the small palm and 1 pic of the large palm for comparison.
Is anyone able to identify the variety of this coconut palm? The nursery owner is not sure of the variety and unfortunately, he's doesn't seem interested enough to go ask his supplier. (I am hoping for them to be a Panama Tall).
My wife and I recently purchased a home with two of the same kind of palm trees. I've tried to research what kind they are but didn't realize how many varieties existed. Can someone please help me with the attached images below?
Anyone know what this tree is. The picture doesn’t do it justice but it’s so light green it’s almost blue.
I just got these Mountain Coconuts to plant, but they seem a bit too green. Would they be able to germinate? I read it is pretty hard to germinate those anyway. Should I remove the mesocarp (the green husk)?
I was planning on letting them dry for a few weeks, then a few weeks in the fridge, then soak them for a few days, then plant them halfway burried in topsoil/peat moss mix and leave them outside to experience daily temperature variation.
Does enyone have experience germinating Parajubaea Torallyi?
