Mystery Clumping Chamaedorea for ID

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

I have been growing this unknown Chamaedorea for a number of years. It is a clumper with long, skinny stems and I suspect it belongs to a species of "bamboo palm" Chamaedoreas. My problem is I have trouble differentiating between species of bamboo palms. This little darling is a female and this year is loaded with green seeds. Right next to it is a (male?) hybrid Cham named after the late Dick Douglas, which I featured in another topic. Closely related Chamaedoreas sometimes hybridize but more distantly related species won't.

Can someone tell me what species my clustering palm is? And also tell me whether it might be possible that my Douglas hybrid is male and might be the pollinator of my mystery palm's seeds?

To my eye it looks like C. microspadix, Meg... but I could be mistaken. However microspadix and radicalis can hybridise so it would make sense if it has pollinated your adjacent radicalis hybrid.

C. microspadix would be my first guess also, matte finish, slight blueish tint.  Fairly slow growing, only 6 or 7 feet tall

      my guess is Lytocaryum insigne
