Gene,

Sorry, I just didn't have anything to put in the photos for scale. 7 ft across for a L. peltata var. sumiwongii frond may be pushing it, though! The one in my photo is about 5 ft across, and the largest fronds I have seen were about 6 ft across.

Here's one of our Licuala cordatas. Again, sorry for not having anything for scale, but this palm is about 2 ft tall.

How may varietis of Licualas have a whole and split leaf form?

There is the Peltata, Cordata and now the Triphylla too --This is a bit technical but shouldn't they be considered different species?

Side view of My Licuala Orbicularis.  I think this is still a relatively young plant becuase the leaves are still a bit compact.  I think mature plants have leave with longer petioles that hold the leaf itself gigh above the plants.

Beside it is the universal reference-->  the 1.5 liter coke bottle.

The pair together.  I got them both just about a mont ago.  So I don't know much about them yet.  I just kept them in their pots and Placed them in our courtyard with netting on top just to experiment.

I thought that it might still be too bright (the sun exposure in teh picture is at abou 1 pm here so it is close to the brightest part of the day and they seem to be doing ok.

The vendor who got me these repotted his his mapu has not grown or had any movement in his plant since then.   the ne blade has not moved even the tinyest bit. They might not like being repotted and set back .  Its his first mapu too so I just tole him that the feedback on the net is that they really are slow growers

These are Licuala Mattanensis seedlings.  believe it or not these were part of Gileno's order from a vendor.  But they switched up our orders so I ended up with his plants and he ended up with mine.  

To Gileno-- did they offer to replace your plants when I confirmed with them that they switched us up?  They should because it was clearly their mistake.

Does Mapu grow in So-Cal?

I love those mottled leaves.

Do any of the ones with Patato Chip Type leaves grow in So-Cal?

Differnt plant.  Different angle.

I noticed that the plant of Bo Goran had some sort of extensions on the ends/both sides of the fan.

Here's a pic of my Licuala radula in the ground.  Seems to be quite a hardy palm to some sun and even handling some dry spells quite well (altho our humidity levels don't drop too low however).

Al that Radula is gorgeous.  The leaf segments seem to be much fuller than the Licuala mapu.

Is the mottling more pronounced in deep shade or brighter light?  I assume that it cant take full sun because its an understory palm right?

These are Licuala Triphylla.  These were bonus seedling so I did not pay them much attention until I saw the pictures on this thread.  i will make sure to give them a well protected location.

I assumed they were not that nice due to the fact that they were just bonus plants - boy was I wrong.  I don't know though if these are the split leaf or whole leaf form.

Its a shame I don't know their exact age.  They all look the same at this age I guess but these seem to be very glossy leaves.

:) Hi Steve

I was waiting to see if you where going to post a pic of

your L.cordata, I remember when you had it in town,

with your mapu's,

I did'nt know your took it out to the property ,Dude sorry

to hear about your loss, Cheers Mike.

We'll look after ya.

Al,

Nicely grown L. radula, Looks great. Got it in a great spot.  Mike

Gene,

Health looking plants,look after those L.triphylla's

With Licuala radula, you'll get the best colouration out

of this 'sp' by planting it in filtered light, In Dark plantings

they have dark blotches instead of what you see in Al plant.

I've moved my ones out to better light ,great changes in colour.

It's even the same in the wild,I gave My friend Phillip

A location to see them in the wild, and wow, what neat pic's I'll get some copies and post. You'll be surprized

how tall these beauties get, They look great.

You started a good thread Gene.

Now Here's  A Licuala you'll have to check out, this picture is

of a 4" S/S  and a 2" tube of Licuala Pre-arti, one very

different looking one in the family of Licuala's a Bifid

leaf, if you walked towards this plant in the wild you

would never think it was a Licuala, looks more like a

Calyptrocalyx, Check out Claytons site, Utopia Palms and Cycads

And go to the gallery to see the mature picture what

a stunner.

Regards Mikey,

P.S. will put up more pic's later. :)

me of (L.matt) but on steroids, Truely a stunner.

More Later.       Regards Mike  :)

Mike,

Yes I have taken a look at the pictures of Licuala pre ati in the Utopian palms webpage and I agree that it is definitly a very unique licuala.  Very very nice plant.  I actually ordered a smal packet of seeds from RPS-- definitely on my wish list!!!!

I also like the Licula "nova" on his site but it says that they have not been able to collect seeds of that one yet.

Licuala Mapu seeds arrived yesterday and I took a shot of them before I soaked them in water. I was told they were shaped like bananas- as you can see thats a pretty accurate description

There is a thin bark like cover on the  seeds I guess that this are remnants of the fruit.  When one of teh seeds floated Iplayed around with it and scratched off a bit of teh cover and it eventually sank.

Wish me luck on these I read that it could be a very very long wait before anything happens with these seeds.

Gene,

Mapu seeds are neat looking seeds are'nt they. Good you checked out

Licuala 'sp' nova as well,  It is truely a beauty is'nt it.

One day well get seeds, the closest looking palm to  L.nova is, L.bidentata, Which Michael put up earlier, I'll take

another picture so you can get an idea to see the size so you can  compare  the Two 'sp' .

Regards Mike. :)

Couple more shots, This first one is L mattanensis

just starting to flower.(again)

The 'Wah" is also a nice variety.  

Mike did you guys actually go the jungles of new guinea and see all these licuala species in the wild for yourself?

The Matanensis seeds look a lot different from the Mapu seeds, I thought that the "Mapu" was just a mottled/variegated variety of the Mattanensis?  Or are the seeds in teh picture not mature yet?

Looking around the house for licualas used in landscpaing - before my time.  Never really checked what my grandparents planted here.

:) Hi Gene

Your 'mapu' seeds look fine, L mapu is just one of the 'var'

Of L mattanensis, and there is also 'variation' in many

other Licuala's  (eg) L glabra, has more than one form. Gene

There's Lots more Licuala's like this, The flowers are whats used as to where a

'sp' fits into the Family or maybe another 'var' of one

that already has a name, so if it's a new 'sp' the above

work plus more, and not only that cross matching of

other herberium material, this is normally checked

Worldwide, only then can they truely name the 'sp' Or

it matches close to another 'sp' and flowers are the same,

it Will be made a 'var'.

Many Dypsis are like this to as we know.

I wish , Be great to see these other Licuala's in the wild,

Hopefully go to Iran jara first, I don't mind.Hint Hint next

year sounds great.

The person We need to thank for most of the photo's is one

of the Best in collectors, Michael Ferrero, He's a very good friend he's responsable for the collections of the

Calyptrocalyx's ,Other Licualas  Livistona's etc etc Michael's from up this way, Now overseas. Ex curtor of Palms and flowering trees at 'Nooch Nong tropical gardens'

He refound  Dransfieldia , Which was a Heterospathe

The Genus named after John Dransfield.

Michael is a walking Book, of nearly any Genus of the

plant Kingdom. Cheers For now.......Mikey.

P.S. More pictures soon :)

It's sitting in our full sun and going to plant soon,

Regards Mikey,

Hi Bo  :)

I was looking at your picture of your Licuala 'sp'.  To me it

looks very close to Licuala malayiana, Maybe run the name by the supplier, Looks nice whatever it is.

Cheers Mikey.
