Trachycarpus "Bulgaria" X "Nainital"

Recommended Posts

N8ALLRIGHT

Yep, another impulse purchase off eBay

Arrived yesterday and it's beeyuuutiful!

Modestly priced and well packaged. Advertised as a 1 gallon, looks more like a 3. Even shipped with soil:greenthumb: To be honest I don't really know what "Nainital" is supposed to look like other than a thicker trunk and robust growth. I have a Bulgaria,it is much more compact in growth as opposed to this cross. Leaves both have the rigid cardboard feel. Anyway I just wanted to share it.

Looks like it was grown in some shade...I bet once

it gets going in the sun it will be much more compact and should

be a really stout looking palm...I saw some Nanus x Wagnerianus on

E-Bay too,it was tough to lay off!:D

Yes I wondered if it was shade grown or if petioles on Nainital were longer,so I messaged the seller and they confirmed shade grown.

I'd seen the nanus x waggies had to use some restraint

LOL.  I am feeling a slight pull to look at them again...better call my sponsor 

quick...his name is Carl Pool

 

 

PS

 

When that palm gets going post some pics,I bet it

will blossom into quite a nice looking palm...."not that theres anything wrong with it"

 

Ok. (my sponsor didn't answer) I couldn't resist and looked at the Nanus x Waggy luckily its growing in the ground and the picture

was fuzzy so I was able to resist...close one

I bought one of these as well, they look so nice. I was a little worried about planting it so late but I guess I’ll just have to protect it really well this winter.
