Item details

Also known as the red palm, rajah palm, and Malay: pinang rajah, Cyrtostachys renda is a slender multi-stemmed, slow-growing, clustering palm tree. It has a scarlet to bright red colored crownshaft and leaf sheath, making it distinct from all other species of Arecaceae. . This palm will grow to about 9 ft. high or smaller if grown in a pot. It is a beautiful and very different looking palm, one of the most colourful. Because of its bright red crownshafts and leaf sheaths, Cyrtostachys renda has become a popular ornamental plant exported to many tropical regions around the world. Medium sized, slow-growing and slender palm to 30ft in its native range, often only to 10-15ft elsewhere.
As they naturally grow in swamps, they are highly tolerant of flooding and can be grown in standing water.
Although it is not the source of sealing wax, the red sealing wax palm got its name because its crownshafts and leaf sheaths have the same color as the wax used to seal letters close, and later (from about the 16th century) envelopes.
The Lipstick Palm produces greenish flowers which grow on the long stalks from below the crownshaft. It has male and female flowers on the same inflorescence. Flowers are followed by small shiny fruits that turn black when they ripe. Fruit is about 1 in. long and oval in shape with a single seed inside. The lipstick palm fruit is NOT edible.
The trunk is made up of many smaller stems each growing close to each other. They turn to a bright red early in age. The stems are slick and smooth. Its color is so unique for a palm tree that it gave the plant its name. The palms are feather-like and green-yellowish to green. The flowers are hermaphrodite. The palm blooms all year long in tropical climates. The Lipstick Palm is very sensitive to temperatures under 10ºC/50ºF. It can be grown in a hot glasshouse or veranda and inside in winter. It requires a lot of light and humidity and watered regularly. Place it under a partial sun or a good source of light.

I soaked all my seeds in water. They floated at first, then sunk to the bottom after 24 hours. If this is an indicator of viable seeds, I got some winners! Thanks
