Michael:

You are probably wise to keep your coin in the old oak chest. In spite of this species obvious allure, it is extremely difficult to succeed with outside of origin. I have fought with mine for more than 5 yrs years; they are maddeningly difficult to grow to perfection, much less transplant across international borders or to succeed with if one does not have a suitable greehouse. I would wager that that Jeff Searle, the good "Wizard of Oz" and the gifted Mr. Marcus would all concur. I have four near flowering-sized, seed-grown plants re-established in California and around 10 in Guatemala and would not recommend them to anyone who is not an exceptional cloud forest palm grower with access to good water and a good array of new generation fungicides.

Pinanga veitchii, while difficult for almost everyone is, indeed, a much more practical challenge for most tropical palm growers. High white Pinanga disticha, IMO, is an even better choice for people who like this look.

Over the years in which many trips were made to see palms in natural habitat, this Geonoma species probably ranks as the #1 or maybe #2 as far as shear beauty, it's unique requirements to sustain itself, variations in color patterns within it's species, and how bloody hard it was to get there to see them!!!

I have yet to see any nice plants in cultivation, BUT, I'm hoping to see them maybe growing at Nong Nooch Gardens at this upcoming Biennial. I have faith in you, Kampon.
