Recommended Posts

My Chamaerops humilis that I had for about five years now and I leave unprotected has finally flowered!

I always like a first . They get showy too . In a week or so they will get a really pretty yellow . My Humilus  has flowered for about 7  years , and the Cerifera about 3 years . I might take another picture when they get bright yellow .

They don't like single digits so keep an eye out for severe cold and protect it . 

Here is my smaller Cerifera :

Here is my more mature Chammy humilus :

I can't tell male from female Chammys like I know Trachys . I never get seed so I guess that is why . 

Thanks ,

Will

      Last evening my son and daughter-in-law took me out for an early Mother's Day dinner at Bonefish Grill in Cape Coral. While we waited outside for our table to be ready I noticed a solitary Chamaerops planted near the entrance. It was 6-7' tall and perfectly grown with bluish leaves and prominent gold spines. Chamaerops grow well here but are not often planted because most people prefer more tropical looking palms. But I would plant one like this in a heartbeat.

      Hi everyone,
          This is my first time attempting to grow a Chamaerops humilis indoors.  I am battling a scale problem but aside from that I have noticed the fronds getting darker and darker green.  I keep this indoors for roughly 5 months of the year.  I am posting wondering how others treat this species indoors.  Any tips; watering, lighting, fert would be greatly appreciated!

      Does anyone know anything about Southern Frances Chamaerops humilis population? I recall seeing a map of its range here once and it included a tiny area of Southern France. Are there any pictures of them anywhere? Google wasn’t much help. Is the population even still there?
