Seeds or small plants to be shipped to me.  No SoCal road trip on the schedule at this time, 

Also, has anyone divided an adult plant ?  I have one very large clump.  Thanks !

Hi Darold,

I can’t help with sourcing small C hooperiana, but I’ll add that I’ve been splitting up my large C costaricana successfully for the last couple of years. Also C brachypoda. I’m going to try to split my C hooperiana this coming Spring; the arching stems tend to take up a lot of space and it’s always nice to gift or sell split stems once they’ve established to other collectors, win-win!

Thanks to all for the 126 views. 

I was fortunate that a local palm nursery received a large shipment of palms on Thursday, including C. hooperiana.  I purchased two plants yesterday,  and was able to select a gendered pair !
