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.
Chamaedorea radicalis growing in a pot in my balcony. Athens , Greece , zone 10a
The baggie method - seeds from my seed-grown C. adscendens.
Hi Everyone. My new palms arrived late last week. I’ve planted some. Will update as I plant more.
