One of the larger Pinangas I've seen, I didn't know they got this thick or this tall.
Palms near Sao Paulo, Brazil
Went on a business trip to a very nice place near Sao Paulo, Brazil. Some seeds made it back home, maybe you can help me ID the species:
The first one should be an Acrocomia. But maybe not aculeata. Not so spiny, no spines on the stems, and the seedlings without spines.
The second one is an Attalea. quite big seeds.
more photos soon
Pal Meir & Kai are a very bad influence.
10 Lyto's will be going in the ground this spring...
The Syagrus which wanted to be a Roystonea
This Syagrus from Brazil thought that he/she was tired already of being just a simple Syagrus and evolved into a Roystonea.

I also found this pic which I posted few years ago here in Palmtalk, within a field of the east coast of Spain. Those Syagrus look pretty cool too:
Those ones also have a bit of a Roystonea feeling, isn't it? Not sure how they look nowadays. But that Brazilian one (1st pic) is just epic !
Another Roystonea looking Syagrus. Add some green at the top of the trunk and it can perfectly pass as one.
Flowering Archontophoenix alexandrae?
Today I notice a strange outgrowth from his Archontophoenix alexandrae. Is he going to blossom? Growing in a container of 12 litres, the age of 5 years. How often this type blooms in containers?
