Please post a pic of your nicest (or only one) Lytocaryum insigne (Syagrus insignis)!

This here is my favorite: :wub:

This L insigne is of the more slender type and looks more like L weddellianum, but in contrast to the latter it had eight strap leaves, the last one with a blade 83 cm long:

@LJG That‘s looking very healthy. Do you know how old it is?

Here my ten babies when they were still together in 2015:

How may the other 8 of those do now? :interesting:

It is now 4:45 h MEST in the early morning and 25.3°C warm; as it is still dark I had to use a flash reflecting the silvery undersides of the leaflets:

Thanks. Every year looks better. It’s from the same seed run as yours. So same age.

Here is mine in London. This is the one you kindly sent to me many years ago @Pal Meir :greenthumb:

Yes, it is N°1409 (*2014-03-12), the 1st from right on the pic below (2015-10-10). Do you keep it outdoors in a garden?

I planted it outside earlier this year because I was struggling to stop the leaves yellowing. If we get a cold winter I will either protect it well or dig it up again. I don't know of anyone else trying this outside in the UK, but they're supposed to be relatively hardy.

»… supposed to be relatively hardy.« Be careful, there don‘t exist any reliable data, as far as I know. It is only because they can grow at altitudes of nearly 1800 m (in the tropics, e.g. -20.52 -41.10).

      According to the palm literature Lytocaryum weddellianum grows at altitudes between 50 and 800 m and Lytocaryum insigne from 1000 to 1800 m (Noblick 2017). But those limitations seem to be not correct. Below four habitat photos showing L insigne at c. 500 m and L weddellianum at c. 900 m (and 1200 m imo):



      This palm is imo also L weddellianum, but I am not sure:

      On the occasion of the first pinnate leaf  of my N°1401 I open a new thread for this only little known species Lytocaryum insigne TOLEDO 1944 (now again Syagrus insignis BECC. 1916, former Cocos insignis MART. 1854 and Glaziova insignis DRUDE 1881)
      Please post your pics of L insigne here, too! It doesn’t matter if they are in pots, in gardens, or (best of all) in habitat.
      I begin with my oldest baby N°1401, born 2014-02-14 during the cold winter in Germany, grown up together with nine other siblings, out of which six emigrated into other European countries, so that at my place now are remaining still four plants: N°1401, 1402, 1404, and 1408. Here comes the biggest one, about 1 m high (without pot; the split leaf was damaged by wind, it is not bifid):

      And here all 10 siblings still together in their kindergarten:

      Syagrus insignis vs S. weddelliana
      Between 1995 and 2010 the species Lytocaryum insigne (now again Syagrus insignis) was treated as synonym for the "correct" term Lytocaryum weddellianum (now Syagrus weddelliana). In this thread I am trying to document the differences between these two species during their first years since germination.
      Literature discussing the genus Lytocaryum (Noblick & Lorezi 2010) and its transfer to Syagrus (Noblick & Meerow 2015) can be downloaded as pdf:
      http://www.palms.org/palmsjournal/2010/v54n1p5_17.pdf
      http://www.researchgate.net/publication/281374491_The_transfer_of_the_genus_Lytocaryum_to_Syagrus
      (or via IPS)
      It would be very nice if also other members could contribute their photos which show the characteristic differences between these two species or their similarities when they have pinnate leaves.
      My first sketch shows the typical habit of adult trees. I regret that I don’t have my own photos which I could post here. The next photos document that it can be impossible to distinguish their seeds: Seeds of S. insignis may be smaller or bigger or of the same size.
      The other photos document the differences between the seedlings, beginning with photos of half a year old juvenile plants. All Syagrus weddelliana germinated in April 2013, all Syagrus insignis in February and March 2014.
      Here the sketches: Actually S. insignis (here from Espírito Santo) is much taller than S. weddelliana (here Rio de Janeiro) and its trunk is also much thicker:

      Two seeds looking totally alike:

      All seeds of S. insignis which germinated in 2014 were smaller than the average of L. weddelliana:

      And here three seeds of actually germinated palms:
