Hola! My name is Paola and I live in Costa Rica.
Long story short...almost a year ago my partner and I got curious about some massive palms that had a huge flower on top, months later we saw that one of them was bearing fruits, so we started researching on the internet because it was not a common species found in our country, so we found out that these palms where possibly Talipot palms or Corypha umbraculifera, due to the characteristics that they had. Not so many people know about this here in our country, so this exclusive event of nature, ended up not being noticed, and the neighbors didn’t got too impressed either. We also read about the unique way in which they reproduce, so we felt that we had to honor this palm genetics, so we gathered a lot of seeds, and seedlings that where germinating under the dying palm mom.
Since these palms are not native to Costa Rica, we wanted to understand a bit more of how they got here to the pacific coast of costa rica, so if someone has knowledge about this it would be interesting to know the history if these amazing palms.
Also, we are just nature and plant lovers, so we don’t have any experience on growing these type of palms, so we would appreciate if anyone has recommendations about light exposure, fertilizers, or any tips that you can give us, so we can get to have them healthy and growing in good conditions.
And since it is so hard to reproduce these beautiful palms, do you guys know if there is any conservation program for these species? Or if you think they can be transported to a specialized nursery or something like that?
Any comments would be appreciated.
I will attach some pictures, from the adult palms as well as the seedlings and young palms, I just feel they are magnificent and they need to be admired:
My Roystonea regia is encompassed by a massive ring of adventitious roots coming from the basal plate. The roots are raised out of the ground and may become a trip hazard so I'm considering bringing over extra soil we mucked out of the end of our canal this past summer to cover this ring of roots, then applying mulch to hold that soil in place.
My concern is this: Will covering these roots with soil, then mulch lead to problems down the line? Do I risk causing damage or rot to my royal's roots or trunk? Should I skip laying soil entirely and just go with mulch alone?
Nice size 5 gallon Roystonea regia for sale, about 6-8 feet tall. Won’t have them for long, they’re about to go into 15’s.
