Pic from farther back. I use the Rhapis as a utility palm to cast some shade on this. I would have no problem cutting out some of the Rhapis as this ages a little more to lessen competition but I feel if I cut back its Rhapis canopy too soon it will set it back in the blazing sun.

I think the Rhapis may be choking the palm . I have a few Rhapis palms and I just cut one of them back , actually I dug up a section and potted it. I was surprised how the network of underground shoots was so thick. It’s just a thought…. Harry

My watermelons didn't go pinnate yet. Glad to hear the red can turn on at a later stage. Mine don't show more than a little blush.

@JLM palmpedia says 28 degrees so I would stay close to that but they also say they don’t like hot dry weather and I’m growing them in Phoenix so that shoots a hole in that!! If. Your low is within a few degrees of that I would give one a try!!

I’m seeing that palmpedia says its good down to 25, and allegedly 20 when it’s mature enough

It now says that but I’m curious where that data is coming from. If true it’s incredible but I’ve haven’t seen reports of it surviving below 25. Perhaps I need to review the cold damage data again here on PT.

Benjamin, any color at that age is a good thing. That means color will be in your future and will definitely get more intense the larger it gets. When you see no color at all on the younger plants, that’s when people have concern. If it’s color you seek, you’re in luck!
 

Ny neighbor has a Flameless Chambeyronia and it looks awesome. Way more rare than it’s colorful brother. To each his own.

20° for a Chambeyronia seems crazy to me. I’m shocked at that statistic.

I have several small ones in my yard - and a batch of watermelon seedlings that will go in the ground this spring. I get 2 leaves a year on these. Took these photos yesterday :)  Lots of chamaedorea in this area, along with heliconia scheidiana and some howea. You can probably spot the larger of the chambeyronia, the smaller ones might blend in too much.

I have a total of four in ground, all are doing well. Here’s my biggest hookeri with deep color just a few weeks ago. My yard is in a cold pocket south of  Wekiwa Springs, Fl zone 9b. Survived 27 degrees two winters ago.

Here’s my largest of 4. It’s been in the ground 3 years from a 15 gallon and getting very thick. I’ve seen photos of another Hookeri that was extremely robust that came from the same seller. The trunk is much fatter than my other Hookeri, don’t know if its the copious water this guy gets or good genes.

Not the best pic, but here’s my watermelon Chambeyronia Macro.  There’s a pretty hacked up B. Alfredii next to it, that was probably planted a year or two later.  They were both one gallons, when I planted them.  The C. macro is probably 10-11 years old.  The Copernicia macroglossa was planted in 2016 as a 3 gal.

To muddy the waters even further Jungle music has them listed as hardy to 23

of course being in 9a I want to believe that it’s as hardy as possible 

They're fine w cold temps it's the frost that's the killer

If you've got some sort of overhead canopy your a go

I’ve got some live oak canopy in the front yard, giant birds of paradise and heliconia got torched about a month ago but are already shooting out new growth so maybe it’ll be enough for a chambeyronia

These two hookeri were like yours until they went pinnate and then became orange/red at that point. You can see they’re young in this photo. I think yours will send up redder fronds each time now.

Yeah I’m thinking about trying it here in Charleston. I have kept a spindle palm alive for awhile now. And that’s less cold hardy than the flamethrower.
