    • NEW FORUM - PALMS IN POTS   01/23/2016

      CHECK IT OUT BELOW I think it is self explanatory - it's right below the COLD HARDY PALMS FORUM.
    • PALMTALK PERVERT   02/01/2016

      Just a heads up to everybody - there is a "pervert" trying to crash PalmTalk with vulgar language and discussions of having sex with palms. It may be coincidence, but someone also called a palm seller I know and started asking him questions about "having sex with palms."  I have a possible name and location. His IP was from San Diego Cox and it geolocated to around Mesa College. I won't divulge anything else because sometimes this type of information is not accurate. But I do have a name and address. But I just wanted everyone to know, and ask that you inform me if you come across any information, or see anything that should not be on PT.

According to the Orlando Sentinel - three hundred plant fanatics were lined up at the gate before opening. That is amazing! Appears that this sale was a huge success. :lol:

Anybody take any photos? :huh:

I was in a hurry so I didn't get the chance to :( Also I was hiding in shame because I didn't buy a single palm (got a Bauhinia yunanensis, Two nagi trees, and some maidenhair ferns)...

The paper does not lie- I was there at 7:15 on Saturday to start labeling some last minute stuff and had to park a considerable distance away as there were already a bunch of early birds lining up and talking plants. Great event and thanks to all who came out to enjoy the great selection and the beautiful weather.

It seemed like there were definitely more people this year than last year. I picked up a few A. vestiaria's from MB Palms, and Dypsis scottiana and ovobontsira from Leu, among other things.

It is a popular event. And being sunny and low 80s doesn't hut either.
