I think Chambeyronia, what do you think?


Recommended Posts

Looks like a struggling chamy. I’ve seen a few that look like that. Especially if they’re stunted from being in a pot to long.

I think it looks like a Chambeyronia also. It is struggling though and super confused. Many fronds attempting to push out of the crown back to back. The bulge of the crown base is very pronounced and weird looking. My Macro. Watermelon has a slight bulge to it also. As @Stevetoad indicated, mine was in a pot for many many years before I purchased it.

I’m thinking Chambeyronia, too, but in a sorry, stunted, neglected state. At a this point it will never be normal. I feel sorry for it.

It’s definitely Chambeyronia macrocarpa.

I m from New Caledonia and I m growing all kind of chambeyronia exept lepidota. I can say that it is definitivly a regular macrocarpa in bad condition,,,,,

If you look closely you can even see a little bit of vertical "watermelon" coloration on the crownshaft. Barely noticeable but it's there. Definitely a funky looking one though.....
