Pseudophoenix sargentii from short Palms at Cape Cabaret

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

In January I went to a Buddy Holly tribute at the Cape Cabaret in downtown Cape Coral. On the way in I noticed several apparently "dwarf" trunked Pseudophoenix sargentii shorter than I am planted near the side walk. Two of them had ripe seeds and had dropped many on the ground. On the way home I picked the remaining seeds and took photos. I posted those photos last month in the following topic:

https://www.palmtalk.org/forum/index.php?/topic/67082-pseudophoenx-sargentii-dwarfs-cape-coral-fl/&tab=comments#comment-974787

I questioned whether these palms were actually dwarfed like Areca catechus. Consensus was that they had been kept in pots for many years before they were planted, which resulted in their current appearance, i.e., there are no genetic dwarf P. sargentii. So you should not expect offspring of these seeds to replicate their parents if they are raised normally. 

In addition you can read a write-up on this species in the Palmpedia link below:

Coolness. I am glad you got some of the seed.

They will most likely turn out to be regular P. sargentii but the buyers could still keep the name on the plants as a variety, just for fun. It adds a bit of back story to a group of specimens. They would make interesting conversation pieces on a Forum topic or garden tour one day; as palm & plant people ask about your Cape Cabaret Buccaneer Palm.

"Eh... which Cape is that, is it in the Bahamas or near Cuba?"

"Nope, think tribute band..."

The temptation is high, but knowing I'll be like 104 before it has a trunk makes seeds for these difficult to spring for... lol.

      Awhile back I posted photos of the first surviving crop of seeds from my Dypsis lanceolata. Those seeds are harvested and ready to go to new homes.
      https://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/Dypsis_lanceolata
      This is a clustering Dypsis but only sparsely so. My palm has two stems and is 8-10' tall. It is notable for its unusually long, arched fronds and wide, rippled leaflets. It is closely related to Dypsis pembana and cabadae.
      Dypsis lanceolata fresh seeds: 50 @ $10.00 for the lot
                                                         100 @ $15.00 for the lot
      Shipping = $6.00 in a padded envelope. I cannot ship seeds or plants outside the US. No shipping to HI.
      Payment via Paypal.

      My one remaining Dypsis lanceolata has put out its largest crop of red, oblong seeds to date. It has only 2 stems instead of the usual 5 or 6 and stands 9-10' tall. My D. pembana and D. cabadae are much larger and more robust. I wonder if C. lanceolata is more sensitive to my calcareous, alkaline soil even though I mulch it heavily. But it's nice to photograph seeds at eye level for a change. Lanceolata has unusually wide undulating leaves that give it a plumose appearance. See Palmpedia link below:

      Hello,
      I just joined the forum today. I have been growing palms for a few years now, but I have always brought them indoors for the winter. This year I decided to try growing 3 varieties of hardy palms: Trachycarpus Fortunei, Washingtonia Robusta, and Chilean Wine Palms. I bought seeds on eBay. I have found good instructions on the TFs and the WRs, but I haven’t found anything reliable on the Chilean Wine Palm seeds. Has anyone had experience growing these from seeds? Some sites suggest breaking the shell off, while others don’t. I have them soaking in water at the present time and I will be planting them on Friday. I am hoping to get some good advice before then. Thanks in advance,   SALOttawa

      I have approx. 400-500 Coccothrinax inaguensis seeds from my mother palm in Cape Coral. This is a rare species confined to a few islands in the Bahamas and Turks & Caicos. It is hardy to zones 10/11. Read about it in the Palmpedia link below:
      https://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/Coccothrinax_inaguensis
      The article contains a photo of my palm after it was planted as a 3g. See summary below:
      Coccothrinax inaguensis seeds: 50 @ $10.00 for the lot
                                                           100 @ $15.00 for the lot
      Shipping = $6.00     via 1st class mail. No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI

      Do Cycas seeds sink or float when viable?
      I have about 8 Cycas siamensis Dwarf seeds that I've tried to germinate for almost a year. They haven't done anything but sit there. Today I took them out of their pot - they still seemed to have some heft - and put them in a tub of water. Right now they are all floating but I am giving them overnight to hydrate. If they are no good I'll compost them.
