Hello all,

I'm looking for a ptychosperma lineare, dypsis cabada and rhapis humulus in the Lake Worth, FL area.

Need to be at least 5-8 ft tall when planted except r. humilus which can be much smaller.


Many thanks

I agree with Derek to try Jeff Searle. I bought a couple of very nice 4-5' Ptychosperma lineare from him at the 2010 Key West plant sale...I think he stocks this species regularly. Also D. cabadae shouldn't be too much of a problem to find. They are pretty popular down here in the Keys and I think most are Homestead grown, but at least some wholesale producers are growing nice 15s and 25s of this species. I'm sure Jeff also has these.

Thanks for all the leads. I don't particularly want to go all the way to the keys so will look around the West Palm area. I had gotten Caribbean Palm name from Dale Holton.

Derek - Yes, I drive a turbo and used to live in Ft Myers.
