    Here is a picture of my 5 yr old S. uresana. The blue coloration is becoming more prominent. As you can see by the picture two plants are growing side by side, I will more than likely cut out the smaller of the two palms.

    People don't plant enough of those. Along with S. mauritiiformis, those two are my favorites. While very slow as juveniles, they eventually speed up.

    Scott thats great growth and a great palm, I recently germinated some seeds and had about 10% come up albino, hopeing maybe some get some chlorophyll and turn variegated, anyone else experience this with S. uresana?

    I've got some three gallon uresana they have tolerated the florida weather better than the pumos. I think pumos prefers a more montane climate. I am going to plant both of these out none the less. It's good to see Scott's doing well in the ground after a few years. I was also recently gifted nearly thirty mauritiiformis seedlings from a neighbor. They are awesome. -Justin

    Very nice coloration on that Scott, I wonder who sells these with a little bit of size in Florida?

    I have never seen them for sale around here, so I raised them from seed. They have been very slow growers so far.

    I've been growing these for a couple of years now, and I'm just amazed on how silver/blue they are as a small, 1 gallon size plant. They really do have great color for such a small palm.
