Re: Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Steroidal Giant'

That would seem to make sense Mark. I read some posts by Kev Spence on GOTE a few weeks ago where he described how he thought he had lost his T rex over winter. Subsequently is started sprouting from ground level.

Sounds a bit risky now that I think about it.

Re: Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Steroidal Giant'

Sue, did this come from a pup of your plant? Any chance of a photo of the mature one?

Re: Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Steroidal Giant'

Not much help was I :lol: No not really :lol: Kidding! I've compared both SG and normal papyrifer and the latter has more deeply cut and lobed leaves as well. Andy's photo shows it too. I'm glad that there's a high possibility that the leaf shape are indeed different as it makes SG a unique cultiva...

Re: Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Steroidal Giant'

Is it possible to control their height by coppicing them or do you just have to let them grow as they wish? I have one in a pot and I'm trying to decide where to plant it out.

Re: Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Steroidal Giant'

No idea Mark but less lobed/ deeply cut leaves are more akin to the regular T. papyrifer from what I've read. I've planted what I believe to be regular and rex this year to see the difference. Melissa is growing both in her garden and showed me more established plants and it was clear. Not much help...

Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Steroidal Giant'

Some say that this Tetrapanax is just an American name for a tissue cultured T.p. 'Rex' i.e. they are the same plant. Some say they're different. We've got one (Thanks to Sue from Ireland :D ) and we're pot growing it for now to see ...

Re: Tetrapanax papyrifer "Rex"

£30 - £35 sounds a bit hefty, I bought one from Andy at Mulu for a tenner at the meet, I think it was HTs but could have been an Oasis meet.

Re: T Rex growth

Hi lesinge2k, T Rex is just a shortened way of saying Tetrapanax papyrifera 'Rex' 8) A bit of play of words too, as it has massive leaves it's likened to T-rex the dinosaur :><:
