Arenga engleri on an autumn evening

Recommended Posts

DoomsDave

My neighbor cleared off some pesky dicot trees and now the palms are rocking.

Here’s a tall type Arenga engleri. Show us yours!

I guess one would call this the short type???  Next generation.  I'll wait for it to get a little bigger and hopefully gift it to a neighbor.  They smell so good when in flower!

What's the best method for sprouting these? Do they need high temperature?

That's a cool palm, though I don't think it's an Arenga.

I have four of them planted so far. Likely will get a couple more for the backyard soon.

I'm honestly not sure what the best method is. I generally keep them between 80 - 90 F, and wait. They take a long time to sprout sometimes. Babies are slow, but they pick up speed with size and time.

If you find you've planted one, even a big one, in the wrong spot, they take moving reasonably well, even with relatively smallish rootballs.

Hi,

we have got probably a zillion of them growing in the wild, so none of them are sold

here in our home centers or nurseries... So, if you want one of them you got to dig one

up or collect their seeds - I chose the second way.

I got to admit, it takes indeed ages for them to sprout. I had fifty or more seeds, kept all of 

them potted - at least at the beginning - run out of patience and threw the most them away

in the meaning of mixed their potting soil up when I repotted other plants.

Seeds were collected two years ago and this is the situation now...

The ones under control and...

...those not under control.

..here at a place were I had dropped soil containing some of their seeds (it must have been months 

ago)...

...and here at a spot where I had planted out to H.belmoreana...

However, I am happy that they jumped into life finally and I am looking forward their growth.

@DoomsDave No hijacking intended, as an apology here a shot from our Erengas in the wild.

Was sold as Arenga engleri most likely from FB.  Planted in 2005.

Here are 3 from today.
