Re: Chamaedorea Radicalis

I also have one Ch.microspadix beside the Ch.radicalis under canopy and it also seems to be
very tough against frost. No damage so far at -5/-6 C°.
But I don't think it can take lower temperatures than that. It just might be the border line.

Re: Chamaedorea Radicalis

I was wondering about these microspadix too, a couple have been sat in pots for 18 months with the intention of planting them under the canopy of trees I have here in semi-shade. One thing and another they never got planted out this year. ...

Re: Chamaedorea Radicalis

The problem with microspadix is that it is a martyr to slugs and snails. The leaves of radicalis are very tough and virtually mollusc resistant. I've grown several radicalis outside here for a good 15 years or so and they withstood ...

Re: Chamaedorea Radicalis

I'm trying Chamaedorea Microspadix from seed, supposed to be reasonably hardy. I sowed them a couple of days ago.

Re: Chamaedorea elegans hardiness

... To be honest it hardly grew, looked bad and sulked most of the time. It was planted under evergreen shrubs in dappled shade (well protected) c microspadix ? I will never know-grew 2 beautiful plants through the summer only to be stripped of foliage by birds in 3 weeks-no surprise they died ...
