Inguanura paddle leaf var learning curve

Recommended Posts

A tricky little palm the inguanura paddle leaf var definitely a humidity lover along with water one of the problems I have is when I purchase the plants from far North Queensland is acclimatising them to my environment once they get there new leaves it’s not a problem and I can see in the first new leaves some freight stress from being shipped in a box not with all of them but definitely with some of the more exotic tropical varieties so there is some evidence of shipping stress they do recover but it is noticeable a new palm that certainly needs some different growing techniques perhaps the soil is completely different from there native habitat or even the bore water I use being high in iron that is a challenge to learn

Very pretty. I have never been game enough to try one. If yours lives over winter I might try one.

They have lived so far one winter time will tell if they are a winter winner I have one inguanura var major in my garden survived one winter but you can’t be fooled until they really put on some good growth some palms just sit for a few seasons then just drop to decline and give up growing and die with the gardening thinking they would survive but definitely you have to push the cold limits of palms you just never know what will live with so many new palms available now I hope my marojejya darinii can make it to the garden it has survived two winters so far in the hothouse

Richard, having had Iguanura in the garden for awhile now, and talking with others who are growing it, they can be very finicky. It seems they need almost the perfect conditions to thrive and even then, just a slight change in temperature, rainfall, light, or whatever, they suffer appearance wise. The leaves are very tender as well. You’ll need to move it around and find the perfect spot and then just leave it there,

I’ll snap a few photos and post them.

Hi Tim thanks for the grow tip I suspected that they were a little bit fussy and a challenge I have been growing palms for a few years now and the iguanura so far have been the most challenging test i g my grow knowledge if something goes wrong with a palm it’s even more of challenge to figure it out and can result in the palms death by simply trying to fix the problem I will persist

I feel the pain. This has to be in my top 3 favorite genus. I love them but they don’t like me. Hopefully u find the right spot for it and it flushes

I have to also agree. A very difficult genus to get it looking how you would like it to look. So far, I haven’t managed.

Thanks John so it’s just as I suspected a tricky little palm that wants to test a grower’s ability

I will persist with them it might be time to move them from the hothouse to the greenhouse I shall accept the little inguanura challenge as a definite learning curve and your struggling with it in Hawaii that’s saying something for it’s temperament basically the palm is saying don’t muck with me and get it wrong

Here are a couple of photos, one of the larger ‘var. major’, and two smaller standard type. The canopy was trimmed over the large one causing some leaf tip burn.
