I gave Phil at Jungle Music (and UPS :floor:) a chunk of my stimulus check. 

 

C. Benzii, C. Plumosa, and another Kentia that def needs to be repotted and was way bigger than Phil told me over the phone. 

 

Pretty sure my apartment manager is gonna send me a nastygram email, and now I really need to get off my culo and repot some things so I can give them away.

Also, shot in the dark/newbie question but can anyone look at the inflourescence on the Benzii and tell me its gender from that pic?

They look female, if they fall off they were not pollinated. If they turn orange, please share some with me. Lol

How much do these run? I have always liked them but never purchased them.

If you're ever in the Houston area (Santa Fe) Jimbo's has them.  I can't remember how much but nothing at Jimbo's is expensive.

Yes I was just at Jimbos this weekend and he still had 2 7gal palms left which I believe were 50$ Much larger then the ones I got from JM. I believe I paid 65$ plus shipping, so somewhere around 100$ or so to get them shipped from JM These are hands down my favorite Chamaedorea until they get real tall and lanky =)

      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?

      My phone died so i only have the 1 pic 
       
      Chamaedorea Benezeii (sp?) Getting black spots on the leaflets. Texas heat? Watering issues? I water it a couple times a week, it's still in its 5gal nursery pot on my shaded apartment patio. It does get a good amount of evening sun. 
       
      Groot (r. Rivularis) is pushing a new spear - new spear is curvy. It's shaded by another Rivularis and a W. Robusta. For the back story, this is my first palm, he was yellow for most of 2020, and I recently picked a little Perlite pebble out of the growth point a while ago. He's pushed a couple new normal, albeit small fronds since then. I can get a pic later on after my battery charges.

      New frond opened up on my C. Plumosa that I got from Phil last month. Did this new leaf just open funky because it was smushed in a box? Lots of new growth on it already, still in the nursery pot and it's vibing on my patio. All the other new leaves look happy and normal.

      I was taking photos in the back yard jungle a couple days ago. The following planted/potted palms were ready for their closeups:
      Syagrus schizophylla - The only Syagrus with spines, I think. Very slow growing compared to queens. I grew this specimen from seeds I found under a display at my local orange BB about 10 years ago. It was unfazed by fusarium wilt that destroyed all my queens, mules and Washy.

      Ptychosperma sp - Solitary, skinny little palm with huge ruffled leaves. New leaves open bronze-y red, then turn dark green.

      Chamaedorea ernesti-augusti - This species cannot tolerate my alkaline soil and dies within weeks of being planted. So, I grew these from seeds started 10 years ago and they live their lives in pots. Those stems are thinner than my forefinger.
