      There has been some confusion regarding the Messaging System on PalmTalk - and what is private and what is posted publicly. I've been asked to explain the two. There are two forms of messages - what I will call "Private Messages" which are Private, and "Activity Messages" which are public. A Private Message is designated with an envelope icon. It is available at the top of every page (click it and use "Compose New"). It is also accessible by hovering over a User's name or Avatar and clicking the envelope icon. Or it is also available on a User's Profile Page - at the top - again, with the envelope icon. Anywhere you see this envelope icon, you can click it and send a Private Message. An "Activity Message" is public. These are the "What's on your Mind" and "Leave a Message on [User X's] Feed" boxes where you can leave a public message directly as a Status Update (on your Profile or Main PT Page) or on a User's Profile Page - which updates his Status Update and also posts on PT's Main Status Update Page. These are "Activities" and labeled as such on the Profile Pages.  What is confusing is that both options (Private and Activity) are available on a User's Profile Page.  Just remember, that if you want to send a Private Message, use the envelope icon link - wherever you see it. That will get you to the Private Messaging Center. Any other "Status Update," like "What's on your Mind," or "Leave a Message on [so-and-so's] Feed," is public. I would make it less confusing if I could, but I can't.

I went to Gran Canaria back in April 2015, and I took a few pictures of palm trees with my bad-quality smartphone. ^_^ Here are some of my photos (plus a bonus landscape picture):

I'm not sure of the palm species in picture number 5 (the palm in the central part of the photo), anyone could help me please?

Nice photo's.

I think the palm on the fifth photo is a Roystonea regia.

      I found this on YouTube, it is a pretty interesting video, I believe it was filmed in South Florida judging by the Saw Palmetto and Sabals in the background.

    • Stalled potted coconut palm growth?
      By Stethoscope
      Hi everyone,
      I have owned this coconut palm since mid July and it has not grown a single centimetre. I bought it directly from a nursery here in Toronto, it is of the Malaysian dwarf subtype by the nursery/brand loco coco. Do you guys think it's healthy? Any gross potassium or magnesium deficiency? 
      It did have a fungus gnat infestation 2 weeks ago, after which I didn't water it and let the soil dry out while keeping it outdoors to prevent spread of the critters, they have thankfully not returned. 
      The soil is 50% perlite and 50% regularpotting soil. 
      Thanks in advance.

    • Coconut Range In Florida - Does Anyone Have a Map?
      By PalmTreeDude
      Does anyone have a Map that shows the areas where coconuts can be grown with success in Florida? Also, do coconuts do well in 10a? I see them everywhere in 10b + but not as much in 10a. Buy the ones in 10a seem fine.
