I have many palms. Most of them are very happy palms because I love them and we treat them well. In turn, they reward us with bountiful crops of seeds. I've learned there is scant interest in seeds of very tropical palms, esp. "common" ones that grow fast and get large no matter how beautiful they are. Today we got out the pole saw to stop these palms from burying us alive in seeds. We ended up with the pile of aborted infructescenses you see in the photos. Sad, I know, but necessary.

For anyone interested, that pile includes the following species as I can best remember:

Adonidia merrillii

Veitchia joannis

Veitchia spiralis

Veitchia winin

Carpentaria acuminata

Dypsis pembana

Coccothrinax sp

Archonotophoenix tuckeri

Archonotophoenix maxima

Ptychosperma elegans

      First time event in my back yard jungle! My only Archonotophoenix myolensis has the brightest red seeds I have seen in a long time. This native of the Atherton Tableland in Queensland, Australia, may be the rarest species in the genus, according to Palmpedia, and it is endangered. I don't know how many exist in the US.

      It is by far the smallest and most petite of my Archos and I am excited to have seeds to pass on. See photos below:

      I live 8 miles inland San Diego, I've a spot I'd like to consider a nice small Veitchia Arecina I have but it's poor draining and not sure if this will be accepted by this palm.  Have others had any experience with this palm in that sort of condition?

      I got Archonotophoenix maxima seeds by the 1,000s that need a new home. This afternoon I was picking ripe seeds off the ground for a buyer when my husband, against my wishes and at great risk to life and limb, climbed a ladder way up to the monstrous infructescenses loaded with ripe seeds and started cutting them down. Down they came while seeds flew all over the ground and seawall and rained into the canal. The ground turned blood red. Sprinklers go off tonight so we grabbed a crate and spent the next hour picking up all the seeds we could find. Now our gain can be your gain.
      Archo max may be the rarest of the king palms in the US. That's unfortunate because it is reputedly the cold hardiest of the king palms, according to Palmpedia, surviving mid-20s with 60% leaf burn. It is also the largest king palm and boasts the largest inflorescenses - I vouch for that. It is also quite fast growing. Check out the link below:

      If you have ever dreamed of filling your front yard with Archo maximas, this is your chance to do so in only a few years at minimal cost. Seeds are uncleaned because I haven't the time or energy to do so. But they are so ripe they practically clean themselves. Seeds are easy and fast to germinate given plenty of warmth.
      Archonotophoenix maxima fresh uncleaned seeds: First 50 @ $10.00    Additional quantities @ $5.00 per 50 seeds
      Shipping for up to 100 seeds = $5.00   Higher quantities by quote
