Beautiful Max! Wonderfully grown specimens. 

I share Kim’s thoughts.........my M. darianii could use a trim as well.

Thanks for posting the pictures Max. 

I love Hyophorbe indica. They can grow quite fast. I’ve got a couple of trunking green ones and have some small red ones starting off now. They don’t seem to mind our cool winters but don’t like frost of course. 

I wonder if these grew at a much higher altitude on Réunion than they do now. The way they handle cooler weather it would seem so. 

Hyophorbe lagenicaulis is too tropical for my place, but I haven’t tried Hyophorbe verschafeltia. That might be pushing it here. I might try one in a protected area that traps some winter heat from the sun one day.

Merci d'avoir posté les photos Max. 

J'adore Hyophorbe indica. Ils peuvent se développer assez rapidement. J'en ai quelques verts et j'ai quelques petits rouges qui commencent maintenant. Ils ne semblent pas déranger nos hivers frais mais n'aiment pas le gel bien sûr. 

Je me demande si ceux-ci ont grandi à une altitude beaucoup plus élevée à la Réunion qu'aujourd'hui. La façon dont ils gèrent le temps plus frais semble être le cas. 

Hyophorbe lagenicaulis est trop tropical pour moi, mais je n'ai pas essayé Hyophorbe verschafeltia. Cela pourrait le pousser ici. Je pourrais en essayer un dans une zone protégée qui emprisonne un peu de chaleur hivernale du soleil un jour.

 

Hello Tyrone, Hyophorbe indica grows up to 600 meters above sea level, it likes rain.

Great Acanthophoenix pictures.

Ive been surprised at the cool tolerance of A rubra. I have a double planted pot of this species that I germinated and they’re doing really well down here at 35S. I’ve tried hundreds of seeds of A rouesellii over the years and not one has ever come up.

I am growing both of those Acanthophoenix species here in east Hawaii Island. Got both species (one plant each) from Floribunda - none of the rousellii seeds I have tried to germinate ever did. They are beautiful palms - I saw examples in Reunion gardens when I visited in 2015. It's really unfortunate that the pandemic forced the cancellation of this year's biennial.

Il y a 7 heures, Mike à Kurtistown a déclaré:

Je cultive ces deux espèces d'Acanthophoenix ici dans l'est de l'île d'Hawaï. J'ai obtenu les deux espèces (une plante chacune) de Floribunda - aucune des graines de rousellii que j'ai essayé de faire germer n'a jamais fait. Ce sont de beaux palmiers - j'en ai vu des exemples dans les jardins de la Réunion lors de ma visite en 2015. C'est vraiment dommage que la pandémie ait forcé l'annulation de la biennale de cette année.

Hello Mike, the germination of Acanthophoenix is not easy, the Parc des Palmiers du Tampon manages to germinate the A. rousselii
 within 3 months. We are really disappointed not to welcome you this year, but hope that it will be for another time.

What is their secret to germinating these? I have wondered so much about how to germinate them. I think I’ve tried 500-600 seeds over many years and have never had even one try to germinate.

Quel est leur secret pour les faire germer? Je me suis tellement demandé commenter les faire germer. Je pense que j'ai essayé 500 à 600 graines depuis de nombreuses années et que je n'ai jamais même essayé de germer.

 

You need fresh seeds, at the end of the exit restrictions I will ask the park manager.

Hello Akamu, 

It is going well, it represents the zebus of Madagascar, in situ T. spectabilis is always surrounded by zebus. it helps me to measure its growth ;)

Is that ravenea cycadfolia in your garden? How long have you had it? I saw the article on this and think this is one cool palm that I would live to have. I didn't realize there were some in cultivation already. Please tell us more about it.

Hello Tracy, R. cycadifolia is found in my palm grove, I had it adult thanks to a friend who had brought back the seeds from Madagascar. To my knowledge there are 6 subjects on the Reunion Island, 4 are sexed, 2 males, 2 females, the pollen of my R. cycadifolia allowed the fertilization of the fruits presented in the article.
