Love these, such an easy grow and perfect for my climate, great coastal palm. Low maintenance palm, should be more widely used in home gardens.

Cheers

Some flowers just popped on my Coccothrinax crinata, Old Man Palm. They are very fragrant but they don't last long.

Hi,

it seems we have a little progress over here...

My six(!) year old C. borrhidiana last March...

cb04.thumb.jpg.e8c0eb7ceec9b2f19521760f7677723b.jpg

...and right now - photo taken minutes ago.

cb01.thumb.jpg.7a7fa1c612d34be523fe4d0e228d2eca.jpg

It gives me hope somehow. 🤞

 

regards

Lars

These all seem pretty slow when little babies, but some seem to pick up speed as they gain a little size.    Your's looks great.    

I got this discounted "borhidiana" thinking it would stay low and slow for a while.    It turned out to be a hybrid and it gaining hight way too fast.   Still I think it looks cool and like it a lot, but my landscaping plans for the future did not go as expected for this spot.

The various others continue slow and steady.   Reliable little growers, though slow...  

Miraguama ssp roseocarpa got put in the lawn last week...  I'm going to see if I can score some more of these and make this a triple group....

Coccothrinax crinita ssp. Brevicrinus. A four year old plant with a close up of the trunk. These are grown from habitat collected seeds and are the 'real' brevicrinus sub species and not the hybrid C.crinita X C. miraguama.20221113_110758.thumb.jpg.75cb51cd71255d8e9d727897d130f92a.jpg20221113_110809.thumb.jpg.1a325aab83e67ccae435223aeb5485cc.jpg

Coccothrinax macroglossa. Fast growers,bullet proof desert palm, very stiff fronds with heavy silver undersides; currently has hundreds of seeds just starting to ripen. Birds seem to love the fruits!

A neighbor of mine is selling his house and knows I love some of his Palms.  He has an 18 foot Crinita (Old Man Palm) in good condition.  How much do you think it’s worth?  Seek Advice

Only worth what you are willing to gamble at this point. It still needs to be dug and moved... There's always a chance that the dig could kill it. :wacko: Value would go up if dug then reestablished for a year in a moveable box container.

Hi,

no highjacking intended, but these two flanking ones have fattened up so massively in one year - completely of the grid IDing them (some Archontophoenix??) -

and even the Cocothrinax has kept up somehow...  Jesus, that is an incredible growth rate of both species. 

However, I would let it run a bit more - as you said - and see how it will turn out.

 

Thanks for sharing and all the best -

 

Lars

Satakentias.   That spot gets a lot of water, with crisscross irrigation sprayers hitting it from both sides, and I water them by hand on top of that.   It also gets full, all day sun there, so it’s a bit of a hotspot.   I expected that cocco was going to be a borhidiana, that would stay compact and slow for a long time, but it turned out to be a hybrid (I’d guess with miraguama?), that stretched out pretty fast.  
 

This little hybrid is supposed to be borhidiana x crinita, and is super slow….

This one is supposed to be miraguama x crinta, and is also slow…

This has been my favorite genus to collect. Here’s some photos of a fraction of the Coccothrinax I have.

Ouch,

not being to able to ID those Satakentias is a set back - I am living AMONG them here in Okinawa... Your palms looked very familar to me, but their speed of growth especially the thickness

of their trunks after one year kept me in the dark. However, thanks for clarifying and explaining your watering schedule - I had no idea that it has such an impact on this species.

I think I will keep a closer eye on my own ones from now.

My argentata is pretty small but looks like it is trying to flower. And chance it will make some viable seeds when it is this small?
