Chamaedorea microspadix yellow fruit

Recommended Posts

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?

Konstantinos, I´ve bought that same variety (pure curiosity, I may say...) from that seller, along with some other Chamaedoreas about a year ago. The only information I may for now provide is that this so called yellow fruit variety is very slow compared to the "regular red fruit" one. I may state this microspadix yellow fruit is my slowest Chamaedorea.

      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.

      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.
