Ptychosperma sp robusta newly germinated seedlings: $0.10 each

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

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

PM me if you are interested

I have some seedlings of Ptychosperma Macarthurii in the ground, they aren't too cold hardy but supposedly will survive upper 20s.  I also have some of your Dypsis Pembana seedlings and a bigger one already in the ground.  Do you have any experience with the "Robusta" in the upper 20s?  If it'll survive my typical winters with 1-2 days in the 26-30F range, then I'll definitely want to try some!

The lowest I've seen here was 28.5F on 1/11/10. I didn't have this palm back then. Mid-20s is very risky. This palm has taken down to the mid- to upper-30s (37F last winter) with no apparent problems but only for a few hours followed by a significant temp rebound (20 to 30 degrees) when the sun came up - no clouds or rain.

L A S T   C A L L  for Ptychosperma sp Robusta seedlings. These seedlings are trying to take over my back yard jungle and they got to go. If you are interested, wait no longer. If they don't sell they are bound for the compost pile.

PM me if you want some.

PM sent for $10 worth (100 seedlings). They look like neat little palms. I would hate to see them get composted.

      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
      No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI.
      Payment via Paypal
      PM me if you are interested. Give me your name/address to copy/paste on a mailing label. I will PM back a quote. When you pay, tell me.

      For sale are 20 2- to3-year-old seedlings of Dypsis madagascariensis var. 'Mahajana'. These seedlings, despite the size of their 2" tall pots, are nearly 3 years old, just starting to pick up speed and are ready for bigger pots. They are proof that Dypsis aren't the fastest growing genus in the world and I've done the work of getting the started. Despite looking slight and spindly they are surprisingly tough and I've lost only a few to the elements. Palmpedia states that this Dypsis species is a good fit for the FL climate.
