Funky new c. Plumosa frond

Recommended Posts

JohnAndSancho

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 Cant say for certain what is causing that problem, but I am pretty sure it will grow out of that.

Google told me this was one of the fastest growing palms, is that your experience as well? Getting some seed soon. Are they fast germinators as well?

Couldn't tell you. I bought it from Jungle Music a few weeks ago. It's growing like a weed on my patio here in Texas tho.

It will be fine. I have an D. Onilahensis that did the same thing. I assume the results will be similar. Why it does it sometimes is a better question?

It might be a very minor Boron deficiency, no need for alarm, just a shot of complete fertilizer, or even good compost.  

Deficiency of the macro elements (NPK) will occur on the older foliage, while lack of the minor elements will occur on the newest foliage.

They are exceptionally fast growers when fed and watered well. These in my yard have 8-10” spaces between leaf scars on the trunks. There canopies are way up into the adjacent King palms so you have to get used to just seeing their pretty green trunks.

      I gave Phil at Jungle Music (and UPS ) 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.

      Anyone shipping seedlings or small plants... I am desperately looking for chamaedorea plumosa seedlings or small plants. I know it's hard to start from seed on this variety. I live in San Diego area. If there is someone local, please reply. Or someone willing to ship, please reply...
      Thank you
