My beccariophoenix is growing a bit quicker,but looks a little bit sad and yellow,I'm not quite sure why it's not happy,but I am hoping it will improve when I repot it.
how big is your beccariophoenix?
Not very big unfortunatley,I thinks it's in a 2l pot,last time I looked,the leaves hadn't started deviding.A tip I got off redsquirrel about germinating seeds...they sprout ,when you stop looking at them :) .
great tip lol

Important that they are fresh, I believe. I've been looking for a supplier of plants locally for some time ...

You could have a look on GeorgiaVines - perhaps ask them to let you know when they have fresh seed in stock?

But even they charge $10 a seed ...

Here is the picture....(becc. on the left nann. on the right).I have had a good look at the beccariophoenix,I found signs of scale insects,so that was probably the cause of the sickly looking leaves.The new growth looks healthy.I don't know how long it is going to take before the leaves go pinnate but it will look much more impressive when they do.
The seedlings you can see in the pot,are self sown echium, I will remove them and pot them up,in spring.

Half hardy, what temperature did you germinate the Nannhorrops, I have seen some recommendations of +35c, a bit higher than I can obtain. I guess 25/27c is about the max I can get and how long were yours before sprouting, a couple of months, a year?

What palms to propagate

Post by Salvia » Sat Sep 14, 2019 1:00 am

Hi everyone,
I'm new in this foro, I live in Chile, I grow and collect some Chilean plants and also some other exotic ones that I use in my garden.
I have some fresh seeds (2019) from Juania australis that I would like to sell. They were obtained from a small plantation, they do not come from the Juan Fernandez Islands. Anyone interested?
Please contact me by private message.
Regards
S.
