Chamaedorea hooperiana seeds x40 ONE LOT ONLY

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

For sale is One Lot of 40 seeds from my 3 Chamaedorea hooperiana palms. This is a clustering palm with stems that can reach 12' tall. Cham hooper is native to the state of Veracruz in Mexico where it grows in tropical rain forest at 3,000-5,000'. It is better known in CA and although you might expect it to prefer a mediterranean climate, it thrives for me in the heat and humidity of FL. I grew the parent palms (2 female, 1 male) from seeds and planted them in shade on the east side of the house. There they have grown to maturity and not given me a lick of trouble.

See summary below

Chamaedorea hooperiana: 40 seeds @ $8.00 for the lot.

Shipping = $5.00 via First Class Mail in a padded envelope. 

Total = $13.00

Payment via Paypal

No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI. PM me if you are interested

      I received some Chamaedorea radicalis seeds about one week ago, and have had them soaking in water since (changing water out, of course). I’m about to sow them but I noticed there is a thin looking layer of shell or something around the actual seed, should I try to peel that off or is it fine if it stays on?

      It's finally getting spring again and i have gotten around to sowing my seeds.
      its been Sunny which means that i don't need that much supplemental heat which i don't really have a good way of giving anyway cause i only have 1 25Watt heating mat.
      Getting the humidity down has been a little tricky so i keep the top open for ventilation so i don't get fungus.
      This year i have (among others) a bunch of palms like Trithrinax campestris, Livistona australis, Arenga engleri and Jubaea chilensis and also a large assortment of Macrozamia species.
      Macrozamia elegans, moorei, diplomera ,fraseri, riedlei and johnsonii. I went a little over budget this year lol

      the heating mat is under the aluminium plate which in hindsight was maybe not smart cause now i need the temperature to be set a lot higher.
      the idea was that the plate could evenly conduct heat to the bottom cause the mat is to small to fill the box.
      the sides are made of plexiglas and i have made the sides of aluminium too it looks really cool but i have to remember to close the blinds if it gets to hot in there.
      and i also have a temperature sensor build into the body of the box.

      The Jubaea seeds seem to be mostly floating not sure how much germination i will get out of them and some of the Macrozamia moorei seeds were slowly bubbling all night not sure if it mean that some of them have gone bad.
      i also have some more cycas petraea seeds (the big ones bottom left) i bought them again this year cause they didn't do anything for me last year.
      and some ginkgo trees which i think are Interesting trees but i have never succesfully germinated.
       
      wish me luck for this year

      Coccothrinax proctorii is an uncommon, slow-growing, endangered palm from the Cayman Islands, commonly called the "Cayman Island Thatch Palm". Its very large, relaxed leaves are dark green above and silver below. My mother palm on my garden lot flowers periodically all year and produces limited crops of seeds. The current crop numbers fewer than 100 seeds and I am selling it in one lot. See summary below
      Coccothrinax proctorii seeds: 80+ @ $12.00 for the lot
      Shipping: $5.00 in padded envelope

      Hello! I’m interested in trying to grow a large quantity of Bismarckia nobilis (Silver Bismarck) trees from seeds. I am located in South Florida, and I’ve collected about a thousand seeds and citrus pots from neighboring growers. I’ve read through every thread on this site about Bismarcks, but I’m still lacking the knowledge I need to get started. I soaked the fruited seeds (mostly brown, some still greenish) in water for 4 days, changing the water daily. Per advice on this site I tried cleaning the fruit with a wire brush rigged to a drill and it didn’t make a dent. I then tried a cement mixer with sand, gravel, water, and seeds and after running for 45 minutes, the fruit was still entirely intact on all but a few seeds. I’m at a loss of what to try next, short of putting the seeds in a sack and running them over with the truck. I’m also interested in this community’s view on community pots/beds for the Bismarcks versus raising them in their own pot from a seed. I’m really looking forward to experimenting with this magnificent palm using different methods and growing mediums, I just need to figure out how to get these things cleaned! Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
