Ptychosperma robusta seedlings: 60+ in 10" Pot

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

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. 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

Ptychosperma sp "Robusta": 60+ rooted seedlings @ $18.00 for the lot

Shipping = $10.00 via Priority Mail.   No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI

TOTAL = $28.00

Payment via Paypal

      Question for the folks growing from seed. I have a bunch of seedlings in small containers outside on my porch and see  forecasted lows of 59-61 deg F over the next couple nights. Highs will be in the Mid 70s during the day.
      What is a relatively safe rule of thumb temp to drag these guys inside? 
      Without listing all the palm types they range from 9a to 10b

      Back in 2019, before covid and the international crackdown on selling plants around the world I bought from RPS seeds of a dwarf Cycas siamiensis. Those seeds germinated readily and seedlings have grown slowly the past two years. I am selling off extra plants reduce my container garden and have 7 Cycas siamiensis Dwarf plants up for sale. They currently have 1-3 leaves each which they shed, then flush during the year. All 7 plants have a caudex measuring 1-2" in diameter. I have tried to research this cycad and have found some info about. Back in 2019 RPS posted a photo of this Cycas but has since removed that photo from its listing. I've found it to be a slow but easy growing plant that has stayed very small. I've not had any problems with Asian scale or other pests attacking it. Nice little plant that seems to grow well in FL. I don't know its cold hardiness but as it is from Thailand I would guess it is fairly tropical. So far it has done well in a pot. See links below:

      My tall Veitchia winin in the back yard jungle dropped seeds all over the Chamaedorea Metallicas and now I have baby Veitchias popping up everywhere. Veitchia seedlings are some of the toughest, fastest growing little palms I've seen. Give them heat and sun and they explode in size. All the Veitchias are solitary palms with thin trunks and elegant, drooping fronds. V. winin, from the Vanuatu Islands, is endangered from habitat destruction.

      If you are interested in these, please come 'n get them quickly. They grow so fast I soon won't be able to fit them into a flat rate padded envelope.
      Veitchia winin seedlings: $2.00 each  
      Shipping = $10.00 in flat rate padded envelope for up to 25 seedlings. Roots wrapped in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil
