    • COMING PALMTALK CHANGES - PLEASE READ   02/14/2017

      In the coming week (probably beginning this weekend), several major changes will be occurring with PalmTalk. The result will be short periods of complete closure, or of limited viewing (that is, no posting - but viewing still possible). These changes are major and unexpected complications are always a possibility. So, please be patient and bear with us. For those interested, the first phase will be a migration of the entire site to a new more powerful server. After this is completed, a major upgrade to the newest version of the forum software will then be attempted. It is hoped that these improvements, along with some new configurations of various parameters made possible with the new server capabilities, will result in an elimination of some error messages and glitches which have been plaguing various tasks and viewing recently. As with any upgrade there will probably be some new and/or changed features, or ways of viewing and/or using the forum. I anticipate these will be minor, and as always if there is anything confusing or needing explanation, we will set up a topic to discuss them.

I live 'bout a mile from Pauleen's house... Whenever I head over to BevMo or Trader Joe's I take the side route by her place. One day last September I hit a red stoplight at this Chambeyronia Hookeri :mrlooney:

Is the D. decipiens under-nourished from crowded root space? I remember it having a much thicker crown-shaft and wider canopy just a few years ago. Or is it a normal trunk narrowing habit similar to old Jubaea chilensis and Hyophorbe lagenicaulis? possibly also from reduced nutrient uptake?

Troy, I suspect the fronds are showing cold damage from winter. I'm certain the gardens are on automatic irrigation.

I thought Jubaeopsis was a little more cold hardy than that. What does it get down to in that area? Hmmmm. Pauleen's place isn't close to the water is it?

That is true. I have seen the Decipiens much healthier in recent years.
