Coccothrinax borhidiana 50+ Seedlings One Lot

Recommended Posts


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

Payment via Paypal

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

      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?

      About 10 years ago I bought a young clustering Ptychosperma at a sale. The seller called it "Ptychosperma robusta", which was not then and is not now a valid binomial, to my knowledge. He knew nothing else about it. When it was smaller I posted photos in hope someone on the forum would recognize it but got no response. Anyway it has grown quite large and so tall I can't easily photograph its crown. I remove its offsets to keep it at two stems that are 4-5" diameter each, quite chunky by Ptychosperma standards. It grows quickly, flowers and seeds easily and ripe fruit is vibrant red. The infructescences are so high up we can no longer reach them with ladders or pole saws. As a result seedlings pop up all around it in the jungle. The other day I dug up over 80 seedlings and rather than compost them, will find them a new home. I can say this unknown species is completely hardy here and took down to 38F last winter. I hope some enterprising palm lover can offer these seedlings a home. And I hope someone can give it a valid name if one exists. Seedlings will be sent via Priority Mail with roots wrapped in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil. Take  a leap into the unknown.

      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.

      Hello all.
      I have a Washingtonia filifera seedling that popped up for me. When should I put it under a grow light?

      Roystonea violacea is native to the far eastern tip of Cuba where it grows on savannahs and hillsides. It is, far and away, the most colorful species in this genus and very rare outside Cuba. It is named for the color of its male flowers, but young palms have tan to milk chocolate trunks overlaid with a purple hue. I have been seeking this species since I first learned of it. A few years ago, RPS offered seeds for the first time I was aware. I bought 10 of which only 1 germinated - but one was enough. I've been following my seedling's progress, which has been trouble free. It was outgrowing its 14" treepot so yesterday we planted it. I took the following photos. Okay, right now it may not look like something special but someday I hope it will be.
