My first Johannesteijsmannia magnifica

Only small as just germinated. Not easy to get a hold of. :)

Can't wait till it grows.

Congratulations!

I thought mine was small, but now it seems huge. ;)

Progress photo :)

Suprising these survived the cold winter nights down to 4C. While the altifrons have cold damage on most leaves.

Oh man Scott, such wonderful palms. I had a nice one and tried to transplant……..bad idea. 

I do have a couple of nice J. altifrons, so all is good.

May I ask what medium you're using? My J. altifrons seem to be fine with my medium but all my attempts with J. magnifica have met with failure. I currently have a few seeds incubating which I really ought to check. But I'd really like to know about the medium; no sense in doing the same thing again and expecting a different result.

Yes. They look happy. Looks like perlite and bark (type?) and some charcoal (but how much) and I'm guessing coir (?). They don't look overwatered, kept a little on the drier side....?

Thanks all,

Potting mix is top quality. This is the exact one, website should say what's in it. 

https://rockypoint.com.au/products/premium-potting-mix/

I have tried lots of different potting mixes, rockypoint is the best by far.

I have added additional perlite to the above potting mix. Possible 1/3 or 1/4. Didn't measure.

Usually aren't as dry as photo, but I definitely do not over water them. As roots down deep of pot so still moisture down there. Plus damping off always a concern.

Seem to be doing well so far, I also provide them seasol (seaweed concentrate).

Thanks Scott

Scott, are your seedlings showing any of the white underside? I don’t remember if that is a trait that develops over time or if it is apparent right out of the gate.

Hi Tim,

Seems slight white underneath already.

Thanks Scott, I was gifted a seedling awhile back and haven't noticed any white, I'll have to take a closer look.

You know, it just might be J. magnifica. The first pic is the back of a J. altifrons which has no speckling whatsoever. The next two are of the seedling in question. The are some white hairs although very slight at this point.

Need to get the right sun angle for the white to show I found. Yours look good.
