I always sow seed from my Butiagrus in a garden bed just in case. Here is a 2 yr old plant from a sowing of the seed. Looks like a Hybrid to me, what are your thoughts.

I am not an expert....x the unknown factor and spurt being a drip under pressure....but I think the middle one looks like a baby mule palm.

Peachy

I came. I saw. I purchased

Looks like it from my "non-expert" eyes. Are you thinking it's offspring self pollinated from the Butyagrus, or do you think pollination is from another?

I have no idea if it was self pollinated or polliated w Butia (growing nearby the Butiagrus) or S. roms that are around. I collect all the ripe seed and sow in a non-palm area of the garden. This is the second offspring from the Butiagrus. Or it could be a wayward seed ...

Hi, Nigel:

Sincerely hope all is well with you and yours!

Usually seed collectors here in Florida get a quite small number of mules when they collect Butia seed in quantity and plant them out.

Best Wishes,

Hi Merrill, yes all well here thank you, local nursery guys are waking up to this concept, throwing syagrus pollen on butia inflorescences and picking out the butyagrus seedlings to grow on. Nothing sterile or particularly scientific about the process but it is working.I exported my first 4 Butia eriosptha x Syagrus rom santa ctarina mountain form in 100 litre pots this week, made by this technique, beautiful plants...........
