Hi Everyone. My new palms arrived late last week. I’ve planted some. Will update as I plant more.

Chamaedorea glaucifolia 

I’ve planted four. I think that they will look great once they get taller than the S minors.

Chamaedorea costaricana 

very small ones. Hope they grow fast. All the Chamaedorea palms that I’ve planted in the past do very well here under canopy. Have 11 species of Chamaedorea now.

Ptychosperma schifferii

This one is a zone pushing experiment. It’s under the terrace overhang. It gets morning sun.

Copernicia alba. 
I’ve been looking for this species for a number of years. They look a bit ashes to ashes, but hopefully they will take soon and rise from the ashes.

have about 8 more to plant. 
The 4 Dypsis, as recommended by palm talkers, a tiny Euterpe edulis, G maya, lanonia megaloni and an unidentified Chuniophoenix.

I planted the Lanonia megaloni and the Gaussia maya this morning. Both under dense canopy of a large CIDP.

Agree these look great where you planted and will fit right in to what you are growing. Can’t wait to see how they fair over the next couple years.

Thank you KDubU. I hope that they will do well. The other palms not planted today have been here for about three years.

      I have come across following information in a web plant shop:

      Under the light of previous information, I have observed some microspadix specimens from seeds gathered in a botanical garden in Florida and compared them with plants  of same sp already existing in my garden. The floridian plants do produce fruits, which turn from green to yellow and have thicker stems tending to become taller.

      One fruit of it has also a  bloom


      On the other hand preexisting plants are of smaller stature with thinner stems and bear fruit, which turn from green to orange.

      Initially I had been thinking, whether floridian plants are hybrids. But after having read the on line catalogue of the plant shop, I must think also about the possibility of two distinct varieties.  Can anyone provide more information on this issue?

      Stellar palm, robust, great scale, beautiful unusual leaves, and looks more like a bushy shrub.
      With a bit of cover it also is an effective screen because of it’s dense habit. There is a shovel in one of the photos for scale. 
      Needs a haircut every couple of years to look it’s best.

      For sale are 8 4" pots of an unknown Ptychosperma I received seeds for from Australia in 2019. I am sure these palms are Ptychosperma but I am unsure which species they are. They have stayed fairly small and grow well although not super fast. They are faster and more robust than P. elegans, which I have and have germinated so I'm sure they aren't that species. According to Palmpedia, there are 22 species of Ptchosperma:

      I posted photos of these four seedlings a couple months but I'm still not sure what I have. I got seeds of these palms from Australia back in 2019 and the seller IDed them as "Ptychosperma unknown species" with large leaves and large seeds. When I say "large seeds" I do it with Ptychospermas in mind. I can't remember exactly what the seeds looked like except they were elongated and approx. 3/4" to 1" long and 1/3" to 1/2" wide. One PTer suggested they might be Veitchias. My seeds source seemed knowledgable enough to tell the difference between Ptychospermas and Veitchias, but who can say if he was? I took photos of the largest palm. Notice it has black speckling and a lot of tomentum but is that a shared trait of Ptychos and Veitchias? Seedlings are robust and fast growing. They sailed through my winter carefree and without protection.
      Ptychosperma or Veitchia?
