Product description

This is a very rare Licuala species that has only recently been discovered in the rain forests of Borneo. In the southern part of the island that belongs to Indonesia and that is unfortunately also an area that is seriously threatened by logging. It is a small palm species with truly spectacular leaves. Dark green leaves are covered with all kinds of light green spots, creating a striking pattern. This makes the species similar to the long-established Licuala mattanensis var. Mapu. The main difference between these species can be seen in the fruits and seeds. In L. mattanensis these are elongated, while the fruits and seeds of this new species are round and about a centimeter in size. 

The plant needs a moist, warm environment for growth. Therefore, ensure high humidity and otherwise spray the leaves with water regularly. A temperature of 25-30grC would be optimal for at least part of the year, In addition, you can use a well-drained soil that can be kept slightly moist. Avoid direct sunlight. 

Sowing descirption: Soak the seed first for 12 hours in water, then sow in seedling compost at 25-30degC. Keep the soil constantly slightly moist. Germination can follow, as long as the seed is hard. This can take some time.

Mijn zaaimethode: De zaadhuid inkrassen tot die kraakt en dan verwijderen tot je het kiempuntje ziet. (Doe dit voorzichtig met een scherp mes. Je kan van buiten niet zien waar de kiem zit.) Daarna 24 uur weken in water en zaaien tussen twee schone wattenschijfjes in vochtig mos.

Deze methode had bij iemand anders binnen 24 uur tot kieming geleidt. Bij mij ging dat zo hard niet. maar gelukkig is het zaad goed bestand tegen schimmels. dus die kregen er geen vat op. Na een behandeling met gibberellinezuur (plantenhormoon) kiemde het zaad uiteindelijk alsnog binnen zeven dagen.

Ik heb dit zaad op 1 februari ontvangen. En vandaag op 15 maart is de kieming begonnen. Dus 44 dagen in totaal. Ik weet niet of dit sneller is dan normaal maar het heeft gewerkt.

Nu is het afwachten hoe het verder gaat.

I got this seed on January 10 and I have been keeping it in damp spaghnum moss in a terracotta pot covered with a plastic bag with holes and today it came to life. Can't wait to see where it goes from here. Seed is viable!
