Ptychosperma sp "Robusta": 80+ Small Seedlings ONE LOT

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

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. See summary below

      I planted this little solitary Ptychosperma as a seedling some years back. It is now about 10' tall with a 1.5" diameter trunk. After several trial runs at seeding it has finally produced its first crop of ripe burgundy red seeds on a dark pink infructescense. I look forward to growing offspring from this special little palm.

      I have many more seedlings coming up in our yard - this time it's Ptychosperma sp Robusta. If I can't find them new homes, they end up on the compost pile. I was sold the mother of these seedlings under the name "Ptychosperma robusta". But I can find no information about this palm or whether its name is valid and no one who has seen it or its photos can tell me what it is. I can confirm that this palm is as advertised: robust, sturdy and very fast growing. Its ripe seeds are red. It clusters but not heavily and I remove the offsets as they come on. It is one of the tallest palms in my jungle, rivaled only by the Veitchias. It has no issues with my climate and takes full FL sun. This is one tough Ptycho - whatever it is.
      Ptychosperma sp Robusta newly germinated seedlings: $0.10 each (minimum purchase = $5.00)
      Shipping = $10.00 via Priority Mail for up to 300 seedlings.        No shipping overseas. No shipping to HI
      TOTAL = TBD

      I have 3 Serenoa repens Silver (NOT Super) seedlings to sell as a lot. They are the only offspring from the beautiful Serenoa Silver palm on the berm overlooking our canal. Here in FL we have a real problem with people trespassing on private property to strip saw palmettos of their seeds for black market trade pharmaceuticals. Last summer my palm was loaded with fruit. By fall only a few were left. Seedlings for sale are about 6 months old. They germinate green and turn silver they grow.
      Serenoa repens Silver seedlings: 3 @ $18.00 for the lot
      Shipping = $10.00 via Priority Mail.      No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI
      TOTAL DUE = $28.00

      I have a 10" pot of 60+ seedlings of Ptychosperma robusta from my mother palm. 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.
