Let's see your iriartea

Recommended Posts

John hovancsek

I put this oalm in over 1.5 years ago from a 1 gallon.  It has gone threw some growing pains and I thought I was going to lose it first a while but now it is doing really good and becoming one of my favorites.  Let's see your  stilt palms.  I will start with a few. Fort 2 of iriartea and areca vestiarea ( maroon)and vershefeltia

I wish i had something to show in return. Those are some bodacious palms. The vershaffeltia looks really splendida.

Aloha John, the Iriartea is looking good. I remember when mine was that size, I burned the crap out of it with full exposure. It soon adapted and is now waaaaayyyy up there. I’ll post a few photos tomorrow.

Okay John, I went digging through some photos, and this is what I found...

The Ireartea deltoidea is way up there.  I have 2 (a 3rd succumbed to the gas from the eruption). It has stilt roots but they are kind of short and stubby.

Other stilt roots... Areca vestiaria 'maroon' line a garden path:

And a Verschaffeltia splendida with stilt roots and a very defensive spiny trunk:

And Areca guppyana:

Great pictures everyone. 

Here is my Ireartea deltoidea, this was purchased as a 4” plant about 2.5 years ago. Amazing how fast these are! 

Rocky is providing scale.

I love this topic! Iriartea are one of my favorite palm genera! I love their hearty looking fishtail-like leaflets. 

 

I don't mean to hijack this post, but here is a palm I saw at Jardin Botanico de Quindio in Colombia.... I almost missed it because it was obscured by the foliage, and the sun was directly behind it from the vantage point that allowed you to see the whole trunk, so I have this low quality image. I was so impressed by this palm because its trunk was larger than a Roystonea!

Perhaps Dictyocaryum lamarckianum?

Here are Dictyocaryum down the street from me at a good friends house. They are probably the biggest ones I have ever seen.

Such amazing photos in this post! It crossed my mind that the palm could be a Dictyocaryum, but I had no idea that they were so big! It was such an impressive palm.

Finally, here is a photo of the only Iriartea in the garden and it’s grown like Jack in the Beanstalk.  One of my favorite palms, hence the avatar.

Look for the ole shovel at the base for scale. There are a couple of Wettinia and a small Socratea in the frame as well.

Thanks for the great topic!

I love Iriartea and actually all palms with stilt roots.

First my largest Iriartea, still a baby but a hurricane Maria survivor planted 2017. I have a couple more much smaller planted less than 2 years ago.

Between showers I got some shots of three of my five Verschaffeltias.
