    • 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.
    • Server Upgrade Tonight 2/21 10pm EST   02/20/2017

      Sometime around 10pm EST tonight our server will be off line for an update. The time it takes to get back up will depend on your location, but should be less than a day.

As the title says :) who's got the biggest since these bad boys were getting handed out? I'm curious to see if they have remained true to Mother Queen

 I think that MattyB planted a row of them & posted a picture when they were a few years old. Only one of the 6 or so plants was showing any "out of the ordinary" traits that you'd expect to see in a queen palm; and even that one individual was nothing that would turn your head. I can't remember anyone saying they were growing one that stayed true to the mother plant's form, at least outside of normal variability for the species.

Ok here is my Syagrus " abreojos " i received the seeds for this palm in July 2008 from Pogo Bob Robert De Jong in San clemente California. It has grown very fast in the ground and has quite a bit of clear trunk now.  The fronds look a bit more plumose than regular queens.

Mine is not picture worthy, it unfortunately turned into a plain old S. rommy.

@MattyB I remember seeing a picture of a row of abreojos you planted. Those still growing strong for you? I'm curious as to what do they look like now?

Plain Jane Queens is my guess!
