Re: T Rex growth

Hi, thanks for the response. I tried palm centre and couldn't find any (it is tetrapanax papyrifera isn't it?) At the moment I have a musa sikkimensis and musa basjoo sakhalin in a raised bed with black bamboo, and heavenly bamboo forming a backdrop. All are small ...

Re: What's on your wish list?

I second that Barrie, a long warm summer, with plenty or overnight rain!!

Other things - Butyagrus - although that should be sorted later this summer, plus the normal Tetrapanax papyrifer.

Beyond that i tend to find things i like as i go.

Re: Targets

Not exactly, but i quite fancy a Butyagrus. Will have to save my pennies first though.

Also the normal Tetrapanax papyriferus, i know a few members have this - so hopefully lots will pup this year 8)

Beyond that not sure yet.

Tetrapanax papyrifera

Now everyone raves about the rex version etc. But i really want to give the normal version of this a go. Where to get one?

I know Melissa and Keith have a very nice one, but does anyone else grow the normal sort?

-5C in God's Own County

... I wouldn't be too concerned but I took a few risks this year with Puyas, Agaves, Pseudopanax, Nanas and Protea. It will be interesting to see how Tetrapanax P. and T. P.Rex fare. Both have shaken off -3C from two weeks ago without any concern. Is it me, but when we hit -5C we seem to be entering ...

... as that's only borderline hardy. Looks like the T.rex has had some frosts already. Keep it frost free too till planted. We've got a small Tetrapanax 'Steroidal Giant' (which some say is the same as T.rex) and it only holds on to two leaves at a time since being put in the greenhouse, yours ...

I believe that the ordinary Tetrapanax papyrifer comes from Taiwan but I'm not sure about T.rex. Wasn't it propagated originally in the UK? I'm really hoping that the flower on mine will open before the frosts get it. Its taking ages but ...

After googling it seems there is more than one type of rice paper. There is the edible one made with rice and one used for art and pressing flowers etc. made from tetrapanax papyrifer sap.

You're obviously into flower pressing Bodster :lol: .

Mick, my Tetrapanax (probably not Rex), took a while to get going and then exploded into growth around September time. (Planted June). On UKO someone commented that they sometimes take a while to find their feet. I now have a ...
