Ptychosperma sp robusta newly germinated seedlings: $0.10 each

Recommended Posts

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.

      Satakentia liukiuensis was recently rated one of the top landscape palms for SFL. But it is very difficult to find even at specialty nurseries and impossible BB garden centers. I currently have 3 growing in my back yard jungle but had problems with them in the past. My advice is DO NOT be in a rush to stick it in the ground. Take time to grow it to at least a 7g pot before planting it. My largest is still a juvenile pushing 7-8' tall and ready to form a trunk. Read article below:
      http://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/Satakentia_liukiuensis
      Satakentia liukiuensis Seedlings: $2.00 each. Minimum order = $20.00   NOTE: I am listing other palm seedlings and you are welcome to mix & match species
      Shipping = $10.00  No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI
      Seedlings will be sent without pots and soil, with roots wrapped in damp orchid moss, clear wrap and foil.
      Payment via Paypal. PM me if you are interested

      Last year my Archo maxima produced a bountiful crop of seeds and is working on its 2021 crop. I potted up some of those seedlings and need to find them a new home. In the US Archo maxima is one of the rarest of the king palms. See article in Palmpedia:

      I have multiple pots of Dypsis pembana that have been growing for almost a year. They spent all winter outdoors unprotected and laughed off all the cold fronts threw at them. I have said many times this is the best landscaping palm to come along in many years. It clusters but sparsely - both my adult palms have 3 trunks. They have taken down to 28.5F without even cold spotting and are solid zone 9 palms. They grow fast and look great.

      In a follow up with my post regarding seedlings dying, I was wondering if root rot has a particular “look”. The reason why I am curious is that more seedlings continue to die off and I have kept the soil dry-ish yet they exhibit the same look as the previous. I pulled a couple of my few remaining Dypsis Leptocheilos and the roots look pretty good to me. They are firm and of decent size yet the plants are clearly not going to make it. The leaves are browning and soft. I have figured that the potting mix is the problem as some of my wife’s plants have a fungal looking thing on the top of the soil. It’s from the same bag yet my seedlings show no visual sign of fungus. Any of the seed starters out there have some advice? I was recommended to use Fox Farm products next time. Any thoughts?
