Hemithrinax ekmaniana

Recommended Posts

Thought I’d share my largest hemithrinax ekmaniana flowering for the second time this year. Im hoping she holds on to seed. I have two others but no flowering yet. These are about 7 years old from seed.

Sweet!  Hopefully you'll get some good seed set.

This species has proven itself a survivor from the tropics to unhospitable deserts. Mine have seen temps between 28F - 120F and have actually flourished! (a rare occurence for almost any palm here) Hopefully,more of these will start seeding soon as there is bound to be demand once word gets out on how tough and carefree they actually are. Here's 1 of mine...

Wow, that's a perfect plant growing in a very different climate from Cuba!

That's a stunning one. Sits in full sun since a seedling? And how many times you water in the week when it does not rain? I have to grow first in a pot, fast draining soil needed? I live as well in Miami and considering. Definitely a species you need to have patience to see results.

Such cool little palms! Hopefully they're more available soon. Would like a try in my garden some day.
