I’ve been waiting a little over a month for it to open up. Nice! That actually seems like a short time right now to me. My Chambeyronia hookeri had a spear that appeared to be ready to pop open back in November. The cool wet winter here really slowed it down and only a few of the leaflets have cracked open, meanwhile the spear behind it kept on pushing. My best guess is that I will get close to back to back leaf openings on it as temps begin warming up. Other New Caledonia palms in my garden didn't seem to be as impacted as this particular palm has been by this unusually cool winter/spring here. The normally very intense color has faded from red to green on the base leaflets that have opened very slowly but I can see red in the leaflets that are barely cracked open. I guess this stands out because I'm always checking on it to see if it has progressed. It reminds me of watching a flush on a Cycad that is pushing slow! 5 33.0782 North -117.305 West at 72 feet elevation Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
