Still more palm babies in Beaverton Oregon...

Recommended Posts

Here's the Butia yatay X Jubaea chilensis hybrid from Patrick/Patrix,  just arrived in great shape!   Also Trithrinax campestris, with its sharp pointy blue-green leaves.  Love em!  The JxB hybrid seems more coveted, but Patrick indicated that the BxJ hybrid is faster, hardier as a seedling, and has glossy green leaves (whereas JxB. yatay tends to have blue-green leaves that are less glossy).  So BxJ leaves may resemble Jubaea more in terms of color/texture, which is a bit surprising.   These will go into the ground after I move to So. Oregon with its warmer/drier Mediterranean climate.

Very nice, trithrinax is a great palm. It's slow, but the color and form are really attractive. The fronds shimmer in sun

Do you have any of this palm?  If so, do you have any pics?

This is the only one I could find, it's from 2 years ago, but I can take an updated pic tomorrow

Pretty plant!  Would love to see size difference now compared to then.  More pics are welcome!  :-)

Looks great, just like mine. I’m really looking forward to the my 2 Yatay x jub to growing up a bit. The few examples I’ve seen are stunning, like a more elegant, greener, faster jxb. I think Patrick struck gold with that yatay x jub! Seems consistently a Very nice palm.

I kind of forget about this palm, as you can see it hasn't grown much in terms of size, but it does have 3 distinct heads now.

They grow fast.  Mine looked smaller than yours when I got it and eight months later, this is how much it grew.

I had it under grow lights for the first winter,  24/0 light cycle.  Planted in ground last summer.  Just been over a year now, it should really put on some size this summer.

Is that your secret? It is really growing crazy. Nice work.

Congrats @MarkbVet on the great selection. I pretty much got the same palms a few months back so please do post regular updates so we can compare growth (my climate may be a bit warmer but I probably do neglect the palms more).

Will do.  Mine will be potted for quite awhile, but will upgrade to larger pots as needed, and fertilize, and lots of sun n water in summer.   Hope they will grow decently while potted.   Good luck w/ yours!

I also think potting up to the next size very quickly helps.  It went from the square tree pot, to one gallon, them up to five gallon in just a few months.  By summer, the roots were filling the five gallon real well so I planted it in the ground.  My rule is, if you wait until the roots are coming out of the bottom of the pot, you've already restricted growth.

@Chester B here's the C. humilis "vulcano"  seedling from Desertscape.   Healthy little thing, let's hope it grows decently lol.
