Seeding Zamia sp/hyb ID

Recommended Posts

Can anyone confirm the ID of the seeding Zamia in the photos below? Could it be Z. loddigesii x pumila? Something else?

Meg, those serrated edges to the leaves leads me to believe there is something else in the cross.  If I were to pick one of the two species you mentioned as a starting point, I would opt for Z loddigesii  over the pumilla.  The serrated leaves could come from crossing it with something like Z spartea or Z standlyi.  I like the look whatever the combo is and hope maybe someone else that also has this cross from same seed batch may provide you with more insight.

There's a "long pointy leaf" form of Z. Furfuracea too, which could be part of the mix.  I have a similar-looking Zamia I got from ChuckG, but unfortunately it got completely defoliated at my two heavy frosts at 28F and 30F.  I'm sure it'll sprout out this spring, but I don't have any good photos for comparison.  Chuck thought it was a Furfuracea/Loddigesii mix.

Thanks for the info. I have several species/hybrid of Zamia. I'll germinate them and offer the seedlings later this year. My Zamia variegata Heavy Yellow is seeding and those offspring should be choice.

I think I bought the mother plant in a pot of seedlings labeled "Zamia hybrid" at a Palm Beach Sale. I was growing them up to sell but ended up keeping them. Zamias are my favorite cycad here in FL because they tend tropical and don't mind the swelter.

      I germinated these seedlings several years ago. They are still tiny but hanging in there. I still have dozens of them. I believe they are D. madagascariensis v mahajanga but I need confirmation from a Dypsis afficionado. I got the seeds from @NatureGirl back in 2018 or so. They are maddeningly slow growing as some Dypsis are but are surprisingly resilient. They stay outdoors in the shade year round and get no protection from the elements. I have dozens of them I am looking to sell as I don't have time and energy to keep herding them around.
      Are these D. mad v mahajanga?

      Hey everyone, 
      I know I pretty back to back, but I just trimmed my coonties because I think scale is starting to die back from a months long battle with the pests. I sprayed neem and scale specific oils for a month, daily.  The plant was still healthy and a hard cortex gave me some hope for a bounce back. I picked scale from the cortex with my girlfriend. I hope you can give me advice on if the scale will die back and leave totally with continued treatment, plus ground coffee. I know its not proven but why not try. Will the flush come back ? Did I do a dumb thing?

      Hello People,
      I posted this already on palms in pots but some people directed me here for more help. I just want to know if My En Lehmannii will say blue in South Florida. If the rain is to much can I just being them in and out side as needed to keep the blue? These are my questions. Plus I have this Dioon Spinulosa pup with roots. The leaves on it are from a old flush before I bought it (so I am told), Will new flush come in July/ Juneish? I know I wait but I am curious and new to cycads.  Thanks everyone

      I have several hundred Open Pollinated ripe uncleaned seeds from several specimens of this hybrid Zamia for sale. Z. loddigesii comes from the Atlantic side of Mexico and is threatened by habitat loss. Z. pumila is the only native North American cycad and is known as "coontie". I received the mother plants in a compot of seedlings from a Palm Beach Palm and Cycad sale some years back. I also have picked up a number of other Zamia species over the years, so while I know what the mothers are, the fathers could be a number of species/hybrids. See details below:
      Zamia (loddigesii x pumila) x Zamia ???? OP Uncleaned Seeds: 25 @ $10.00 for the lot
                                                                                                               50 @ $15.00 for the lot
