Hi,

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.

    • Coconuts In The Desert?

      Is anyone in a desert region growing coconuts? If so how well do they do and do you have any pictures?
    • Rapha Farnifera in mainland Spain?
      By Dondequiera Jeff
      As near as I can tell from looking at my palm books and on the internet, this palm is a Raphia farnifera. It is growing in Parque de la Paloma in Benalmádena, Málaga, Spain. I was surprised to see it as I assumed it was too tropical to grow in this area. Although it is a 10A area, it is cool for several months in the winter, with average daily highs only about 62ºF or about 16.5ºC. I have never seen another palm of this type in Andalucía. By the way, a few weeks ago we had temperatures down to about 2ºC but this palm seems completely unaffected. Can someone confirm that it is actually a Raphia farnifera? If not, any idea what it is?

    • Can somebody help me ID this coconut palm?
      By bbates123
      I planted this from a sprouted coconut a few years ago.  The leaf stalks look more yellow than my Malayan coconuts and other small sprouted coconuts.  Can anybody tell me what this palm is?

    • Are my coconut palms OK?
      By bbates123
      These palms have been in the ground since June 2015.  Overall they seem to be doing fine but I've been noticing the edges of the fronds turning brown, even newer growth.  This also happened last winter.  Is this just a normal thing that happens during the colder winter months when they get less light during the day?  Using a cheap moisture meter the gauge reads plenty of moisture in the ground.  They get hit with soaker hoses twice a week.  They also get in ground fertilizer injections 3 times a year from a professional service.  Do I need to worry about lethal yellowing?
