palms are widely planted for decorative purposes throughout their native region, and
elsewhere in tropical and subtropical regions. They are Its ability to withstand a
polluted atmosphere and to grow well on either moist, well-drained soils or partially
compacted fill dirt makes it valuable as a landscape plant. The roots don't damage
sidewalks or curbs even when the trees are planted in constricted spaces.
note that the Cuban Royal palm in the foreground has the bulbous base. The Imperial Royal
Palms in the background have straight non-bulbous bases.
This species is easily
distinguished from the other Royals in that all the leaves are held
way above the crown shaft, while the more commonly grown Roystenea regia, have leaves that
hang down below the crownshaft. Roystonea oleracea can be differentiated from
regia because of its wide leaflets in a single plane while R. oleracea
has thin leaflets, in a plumose arrangement.
Roystonea oleracea is one of the most beautiful and tallest of all the Royal
Palms, as well as one of the most beautiful palms in the world, the Imperial Royal
Palm, common on the slopes and valleys of moist limestone hills. A tall, solitary
palm to about 30m, with a very solid, white trunk like concrete, wide leaflets, and
pinnate leaves. Often said to be the most attractive of the Royal Palms, despite not being
as common as Roystonea regia.
The Venezuelan Royal Palm is endemic and very similar to the royal palms of other Antilles
islands. Royal palms have adapted to the high winds by easily shedding their leaves. This
leaves a bare trunk that more likely to survive a severe storm than a trunk with a full
set of leaves. The palms quickly renew their foliage after such an event. It grows
abundantly in rainforests that have deep soils.
Likes a full sun, well drained position preferably on limestone based soils and
doesn't mind wet feet.. Seed is easily germinated and seedlings can take full sun
immediately and are very fast growing. A very fast grower once it starts trunking. Mature
trees withstand hurricane force winds, and also transplant very easily. Royal palms are
rather intolerant of cold weather. The foliage will show cold damage at 31ºF (-1ºC) and
the palm will defoliate at 29ºF (-2ºC). Royal Palms may be killed by temperatures of
25ºF (-4ºC). That said, seemingly "dead" Royal Palms may occasionally
"return to life" after severe freezes in the low 20ºF range (-5 or -6ºC), but
there is usually a trunk constriction that marks the event.
All good things take time, so I grow my plants and rare palms in
my ebay store.
Much more to check out or just get a little education on in my store.

As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges
individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the
discount (i.e.: additional items)
My stores' combined shipping is built in for same
items rather than a varied selection. Domestic S/H includes postage, USDA certification and inspection,
proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery. I can't really change any
of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it is hard to discount much as each
different species requires it's own prep, packing, then at USDA each has to be
unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires me to clean and prepare every last
piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. It
takes my wife and I, 2-3 days to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we
drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post
Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if you can understand.

LIVE PLANTS ARE PERISHABLE.
For this reason uninsurable.
When you order a plant we assume you are prepared to care for it.
Please have potting media and a container prepared for your plant
before it arrives. Shipping can be stressful on a plant, and any
mistakes that you make upon arrival can stress the plant further,
which is not good. Proper care is critical upon arrival. It is your
responsibility to know how to care for the plant.
Not every plant that I order through
the mail survives, and I am aware of that and accept the risk when I
order. This is the risk that you as the buyer accept, because there
is no way to know what kind of conditions it will endure in the trip
to your door. My responsibility ends when a live plant is delivered
to your door. Live arrival is guaranteed, eternal survival is up to

Rare Palm Seeds
Seller warrants seed to be of the variety and quantity advertised.
Safe delivery is guaranteed and seeds lost or damaged during shipment will be replaced at
seller's expense. Claims must be made within 7 days of shipment. All other replacements,
refunds, returns and exchanges will be made at the sole discretion of the seller.
Seed is a live product which depends on many important related grower skills such
as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, irrigation, proper use of fertilizers,
weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and reasonable weather
conditions during the growing period. Germination is affected by such factors as
temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media. These
factors are totally out of the seller's control and are the buyer's responsibility and
risk. Consequentially, the seller cannot unconditionally guarantee seed to perform
properly regardless of conditions or the buyer's methods or mistakes.
