Bentinkia Condapanna & Cyphophoenix Nucele

Recommended Posts

First off all, happy new year to all my fellow palm loving friends. Let’s hope 2021 brings us all good things.

I just wanted to share a few shots of just a couple of my young palms that I think are looking pretty good so far this winter.

First, my little Bentinkia condapanna that was planted October 25th, 2019. It hasn’t been blazing fast but hasn’t been real slow either. It’s been pretty consistent so far. It’s pretty marginal for me but I think it likes this location which keeps it pretty shaded. I have another one just on the other side of the little water fall that gets more sun and gets some sun burn but hoping that one keeps chugging along as well.
Fingers crossed they both will continue to do well. I know they’ve only been in the ground 14 months so I’m just remaining cautiously optimistic at this point.

Next my young Cyphopheonix nucele. Older than the condapanna and not really too marginal. It’s starting to look nice IMO.

Thanks for looking.

Nice Greg! This year I am going to try out a Bentinkia in the warmest part of my yard under canopy. Good to see it’s growing for you.

I like the  Bentinckia C. So much I planted two of them last year; one that gets a little summer sun but shaded when the sun gets low and another that gets a good amount of sun. The more shaded one is growing slower then the sunnier one but so far for me this has been a decent grower with no brown spot effects from the cold this winter. I also have about 20 sprouted cyphophoenix nucele seedlings that I sprouted from seed in 2020 hopefully omen of them makes it up to the size of your one day!

Looks good! In my limited experience both appreciate sun. Nucele may burn but pull through and gain some resilience. My Bentinckia in full shade is very unhappy. The other two in partial sun are reaching for the light. Good luck and enjoy!
