Keep an eye on that Tracy.

This happens to me a lot.

 Mold / fungus can get up in there.

Lots of seeds this year from many different palms.  Sun is at bad angle to take pics.

This last one it looks like you changed genus on us to Burretiokentia if I'm not mistaken.  Everything looks great Joe!  Was that Dypsis pembana in the string of photos too?

Good eye, Tracy.  Last pic is my B hapala’s first info now filled with seeds.  The next pair of inflos are about to open.  Hope there will be another batch of seeds.  
 

Dypsis are:

baronii

suckering ambositrae 

upright onilahensis 

lutescens

lanceolata

Since you didn't post any Dypsis pembana, I'll add mine.  It is one of my solitary that started out a a clumping pembana when I first planted it.  It was abused during our remodel in 2013-2014, with only the one stem surviving and it never popped out any others.  This is my only Dypsis pembana that has pushed an inflorescence either in this garden or my old garden.  Like the Dypsis plumosa I posted, this is having a hard time popping out from behind the retained crownshaft for the previous leaf.

I'm not sure if the seeds are larger enough to indicate they are potentially viable on the Dypsis onilahensis hybrid I have.  I tried to provide scale on size with my hand.  I know that the non-viable seeds I have had for years now on my Dypsis lanceolata are smaller than this, so I was hopeful seeing something a little larger.  Too small still or about right for D onilahensis viable seeds?

Dypsis Lafazamanga, it’s amazing how fast this plant has been.  I have another, planted shortly after this one, that I am about to pull out of the ground because it never looks good. Maybe I got lucky with this one? 2 years in the ground from a 4” plant.

      Is this a prophyll of an upcoming inflorescence?

      I just bought my first Dypsis lutescens (clump) at a local nursery to use as a potted plant. What are some things I should know about these? How fast do these grow? I saw some big ones in the nursery that had full sized trunks. Would it be possible to separate some of the smaller ones from the edge of the clump without hurting the others?

      I confess I haven't been tending to my garden duties as diligently as I should but that's for a good cause. Two weeks ago my son and daughter-in-law, who work in the local health system, asked if I would be willing to sew them masks and hats to wear at work. Homemade PPEs aren't certified against coronavirus but hospitals and medical staff around here are desperate for any protection. How could I refuse? So, I dusted off my mother's 70-year-old plus Singer Featherweight sewing machine and my 30-year-old serger, obtained patterns and fabric and went to work. Visual impairment doesn't make sewing easy but I've managed to churn out enough masks and hats to make my children ecstatic. But all that stitching meant I haven't been able to weed, repot or take new photos.
      But being quarantined in the house means I have time to dig through all the photos I've taken in the 12+ years I've been with IPS and PalmTalk. That blast from the past goes all the way back to April 2008 after I joined PalmTalk (in Jan.) then attended my first Extravaganza at Jeff Searle's palm garden of Eden circa April. I had forgotten how bare my yard was back then. And that the palms I eagerly bought were destined to be wiped out in the winter(s) of 2010. Still, they live on in photos.
      My Caribbean Garden in front of the house was most developed at that time. We received sewer service in 2006 but before that the holding tank prevented a lot of digging and planting.
      View of Caribbean Garden looking west.

      I had planted several Coccothrinax spissa and sp seedlings away from the holding tank around 2006.

      My first success at seed germination: Sabal palmetto I found down the street.

      I decided to turn my south-facing, waterfront back yard into a jungle (which would be mostly destroyed in the winters of 2010). I already had a ready-made canopy for tropical palm seedlings in the form of 7 large queen palms planted overlooking the Isabelle Canal by a local nursery in 1993 - queens were the landscape-palms-de-rigueur during the 90s). But they served their purpose until fusarium wilt wiped them out in 2014/2015.

      Bench planter with Chamaedorea cataractarum

      Dypsis crinita

      Areca concinna - one of my all time favorite palms since I bought this one from Jeff Searle in 2008. I babied it for nearly two years until it met its Waterloo in the record freeze of Jan. 2010 even though we tried all means of protection to save it.

      Areca concinna and queens

      Finally, a photo of the newbie me peppering Jeff Searle with palm questions in 2008. He will likely never forgive me.

      $10/15 or $15 for the lot (I'd guess over 30). Please add $10 for shipping. US only. Seeds will be sent priority mail flat rate box in moist sphagnum.
      The mother plant is pictured. Please ignore the unsuccessful C. renda seeds in the bin pic. Thanks!
