By The Germinator
I have been on IR for over a month.... Catching up on pulling weeds and am noticing my mystery palm is blowing up. I think it is Livistona rotundifolia. What do you think?
Leaf and Petiole
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.
