Well, yahoo and all that; the Chambeys are gearing up for baby making!

Here’s my watermelon hookeri leaping into the reproductive fray.

And another view; note the second unopened spathe just in case or in addition to the first pictured above.

Unlike Chamadorea radicalis, which can start seeding at about two years of age (!!!) Chambeys take more like 20 years from seed. Which happens to be about how old the majority of mine are right now.

Here’s some more, first time around.

Not yet, but getting there. That first batch is about full size, so ought to be ripening soon. The parent tree has a salmon colored new leaf.

You should come over and visit, neighbor!

A visit sounds like a great Idea. I have a couple of newbs that want to meet you. I have been bragging that I know this palm legend up in the heights.

These seeds take well OVER a year to get mature and as noted it takes forever until they fruit. I unfortunately recently lost my only fruiting one.
