The Gerg Posted September 2, 2022 Author Report Share Posted September 2, 2022 Finally my Chambeyronia macrocarpa starting to trunk. I’ve seen much smaller ones than this already trunking. This was one of those palms where the lowest most outer leaf base just doesn’t want to come off. I could tell the inner ones looked pretty loose. So I checked and they just pulled right off and out from inside the lowest leaf base. They were basically already detached but were being held in place by the stingy lower leaf base that still doesn’t want to come off. (One of my two R. regia’s did the same thing.) I think what happens is the leaf base is attached kind of to the underside of the trunk base and therefor as the palm grows and gets more girth it does not really expand that leaf base. That’s my theory anyways. I will need to cut the rest of it off. Anyways, I love the yellow next to the emerald green crown shaft. When combined with a new red leaf these palms are to die for. It’s no wonder they’re probably one of the most photographed palms and most shared palm species on this site. 7 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
