Re: Tetrapanax ills.

Thanks for the thoughts. I have come round to thinking/hoping that perhaps it had grown a little too much and stressed itself somewhat trying to throw out quite so many leaves. The torrential rain of the past month not having helped the stress. I am about to try some sequestered iron based feed and ...

Re: Tetrapanax ills.

Looks like a lack of iron to me. Is the soil limey? Of course Bonemeal, and Chicken pellets increase the pH slightly. I would use sequested iron, or a multi-tonic. Having said that the first leaf of the season looks like that here and that is the cold. :roll: Another potential problem is the rate of...

Re: Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Steroidal Giant'

Fingers crossed Steve Jacobs of Pheonix will have his variegated T.Rex propped soon and that will be a must have. It really was a stunning looking plant ( sorry no photos ) and he said he was thinking about getting it possibly Micro propped. Has anyone who went to Pheonix kept in toutch with Steve t...

Re: Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Steroidal Giant'

Thanks for the input Sue, really helpful :D It changes our plans for and where we're supposed to plant it out. I do hope we'll get a good sized specimen out of it as it's lovely in it's own right but as you said just expect for it to behave like a perennial.

... climate. Anybody growing it where the winters are mild would probably end up with a very impressive plant. Below is a pic taken in August 2006. Tetrapanax SG.jpg All the best. Sue

Re: Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Steroidal Giant'

'Rex' itself has at least two clones probably deriving from the Crug introduction BSWJ1925. It is likely that 'Steroid Giant' is another [independent] introduction of a similar form. Kobakoba make it all clear [but they don't mention 'Steroid Giant']. http://www.aump26.dsl.pipex.com/tetrapanax_papyr...

Re: Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Steroidal Giant'

The first year mine was in the ground I thought I had lost it but it sent up three growing points from ground level

so would have thought it was possible to cut back to keep it nice and bushy at eye level.

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. I noticed that the large swathe of the bog standard T papyrifer planted out at Architectural Plants had been coppiced this ...
