I noticed that a lot of licuala leaves have a wider central leaf division but I also noticed that for the licuala mapu the central leaf division is usually the thinnest among the leaf segments. hmmm

Nice bright orange fruits on that last one.

keep them coming mike - it looks like you have a lot in your collection that aren't even in the books yet. :D

Licuala Triphylla (this is not mine though its from a vendor)

This is suppose to be the split leaf variety and its suppose to be around 3 years old.  Its already had flowers but I don't think it set seeds yet.  

I wonder how long before the leaves begin to split?

The whole leaf form is great too though.

:) Hi Gene

 L. triphylla and L.filiformis are now consider the same

plant, In may experiences, I've had 3" tubes of what was from my split leaf L filiformis (cv) specimen flower in

tubes .

Never will this happen with L.triphylla, Once Clayton gets back

(I've given him that size flowering) I'll get him to find the pic's. I've got some but on an old computer, taking HD out to transfer other pic's( It crashed hard).

Here's my split leaf L. filiformis.

Cheers for now, more pic's later.

Regards Mikey. :)

Licuala is very limited over here in West OZ apart from ramsayi but there is a very small number of Licuala peltata  var. sumawongii's here and there.

L.grandis is still considered an "annual"

It is a shame as they are beautiful

This is a licuala Ramsayii (this is from australia right?) that I planted in the yard.  I placed it under foxtail palms and a betel nut plam.

Hope fully the achieve different heights so that tey display their leaves unobstructed by each other.

The ramsayii is here somewhere (he's still pretty small)

More to the right just between teh beterl nut palm in teh center and the foxtail in the right.  They get good morning sun and are protected by the scorching afternoon sun by teh trees at the back.  The ramsayii should get more protection from shade provided by the Foxtail palm

To Fossilnypa,

How big are those leaves of the mystery licuala? really big like about 5 to 6 feet across?

Could be a Licuala Peltata var. Sumowongii (Licuala Elegans)

Here is a pic of my Licuala peltata Sumawong (L. elegans).  It now is about 1.5m or 5 ft. to the tallest leaf, with each new leaf slightly larger than the previous one.

Are Licuala Peltata var Sumarowongii the species of Licuala with the largest leaves?

The Grandis seems to have some crinkles in the leaves. Is it  a correct obervation that the Sumarowongii has a neater/unpleated leaves?

Gene , having seen the 2 growing very close to each other at a mates place , I must agree that elegans is much more flatter and neater looking than grandis , also slightly larger . Though both had little or no trunk yet .

I'm not sure if these pictures will help, because I can't give too much information on growing conditions, but they are taken from my trips to Kew and The Eden Project.

Licuala_grandis.jpg

These Licuala grandis are growing in the tropical biome at The Eden Project.  They get quite a lot of light in their location, probably full sun from about 10am - 2pm.  Temperature is normally about 28°C/82°F during the day and humidity about 70-80%.

Licuala_sp..jpg

Sorry about the poor photo, my lens was suffering from the humidity.  This Licuala sp. is also at The Eden Project in similar temperature and humidity, but in dappled shade.

Licuala_spinosa.jpg

This Licuala spinosa in The Palm House at Kew is in fairly heavy/dappled shade for most of the day, but will get some full sun late afternoon.  Temperature is generally similar to The Eden Project, but humidity is usually a little higher at around 80-85%.

Licuala_sp..jpg

Another Licuala sp. growing in The Palm House at Kew.  This one is in fairly deep shade almost all of the time, but will see more light as it grows.

One more from Kew.

Licuala grandis growing in dappled shade, but does get quite a bit of direct light around mid day, then deeper shade as the day progresses.

Sorry, but I don´t know which is the real size of those leaves.

Although it seems to be L. grandis.

I was able to buy a seedling of Licuala Bintulensis its still pretty small and as you can see at this size it looks just like any licuala seedling.

In the book this licuala has split leaves and is huge but the feature I am looking forward to the most is the color of its leaves - supposedly blue gray.

The leaves look pretty green to me.  I wonder at what size this baby starts differentiating into the typical Licuala bintulensis?

I have  been to Kew Gardens and I thought it was really awesome and from what I've sen on TV and the internet the Eden Project is pretty impressive too.  Its a shame that we have nothing that comes close to a botanical garden of that magnitude here in my country.

I checked my seeds and one of the Licuala Pre Ati seeds has already sprouted!!

The root was actually a bit long already. I wonder how long it will take before I get those distinctive Bifid Leaves?!

:) Hi Guys

There's heaps of nice pictures everyone has posted

thanks heaps for sharing lots of nice specimens, and photo's.

Mike.E

Hi Gene

Got some information from Michael Ferrero about L. pre-arti, so

everyone can also put the Botanic name on there tags

Licuala anomala. This is the only described 'sp' from West Papua, with a forked leaf,

First found by Beccari  between 1911-1914 in one of his collections in those regions.

Now time for a picture, this for me has taken its time to grow

and only now has it started to stack on a few more leaves, One Most should grow a neat Licuala from China

Licuala fordiana, this is a 7 year old plant grown from seed.

A Hardy 'sp'.

Regards Mikey

:) more pic's soon

This thread is killing me. Most of mine are still tiny, and even the big ones are bound for pots still due to lack of shade. Pity, they are so slow!!

Ari and Scott - is your avatar a picture of a variegated licuala?

Can you post the picture on this thread?  I would love to see it in detail.

Thanks.
