Ha Ha Troy, yes you are right, I have about 20 but because they are all so small it is not worth showing them, they all look the same.

But here are a few more that may also look the same. :)

This has been a labour of love. I am not a photographer,typist or a computor person and it has taken me all day to do this, and I don't have many days off, I would not have finished it without the aid of alcohol and excuse the spelling it is from memory.

Thats a great collection Steve. I have been looking for C. woodsoniana and tenella for years, you lucky duck. Believe me, you arent the only person who has paid good money for a blue pritchardia and ended up with a green hillebrandtii. I finally got some blues but only after many many disappointments and a lot of wasted money. Your place looks really good.

Very, very nice. I love the Chamaedorea collection you have. I also like the ornamental details distributed along the palms. :greenthumb:

Steve,

Nice collection and thanks for posting! And as far as the blue Pritchardia, I have never seen at Pritchardia that really impressed me as being "blue". I guess people have different ideas about color... :huh:
