For you my new palm is a livistona or a brahea edulis?
Make the difference is hard for young palm. What is the main detail ?
Thank you .
I have some extra germinated Archontophoenix cunninghamiana seeds to give away. Two to three seeds showing germination through the baggie (possibly more to come). These were personally sourced from a palm growing in Fort Meyers, Florida over Christmas. I am willing to ship for free to the lower 48; just agree to give them a good home. PM me if interested (first come, first serve).
Here's a very recent photo of the palm:
I was thinking it was one of these 3: Livistona australis, Livistona mariae, Livistona muelleri
Gymnocalycium has become one of my favorite cactus genera. These species have grown well for me in my sweltering FL climate under a canopy structure where they aren't inundated during rainy season. And they cope with the FL winter dry season better than most cacti. I am growing them in 1/8" diameter pumice and a number of them have flowered and set pods of seeds. From a Youtube video I learned how to harvest, clean and dry these seeds. Today I harvested my seeds. But the Aussie narrator of the video did not show how he mixed his germinating medium or what was in it. His accent was so heavy I could understand little of what he said, except the word, "vermiculite".
Can cactus growers here on PT tell me what they use as a germinating medium for cactus seeds? I want to get my seeds going in the next couple weeks. Thanks.
I ordered a bunch of archo alex seedlings in the mail and potted them all. They are all under artificial light. Half seem to be doing well and the other half are browning and leaves are getting "crispy" . They are all watered at least once a week. The lights don't heat up and the room is on avg 78 degrees Not sure why half are having issues. Any advice or tips? salvageable or too late? I may need to start over and i want to make sure I get it right if i do.
