PRIVATE MESSAGING - IMPORTANT NOTICE 01/02/2017There 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.

Sabal pix in habitat
By Yunder Wækraus
Today I visited the Maritime Hammock Sanctuary for the first time. It's about 8 miles south of my house, and I don't know why I waited so long to go there. I only walked two of the three sections. Here are a few pix of palms in habitat there. (Oh, and if anyone knows what the bumpy tree is, please comment with the species.)
Tropical Fern & Exotic Plant Society - Annual Auction - 2016
Tropical Fern & Exotic Plant Society
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden - Garden House Auditorium
Monday evening, October 24th, 2016 (next Monday night)
Auction Preview: 7:00 PM
It is that time of the year again, the highly anticipated auction of the Tropical Fern & Exotic Plant Society is scheduled for next Monday evening, the 24th. The auction has become one of the best events for bidding on rare and unusual plants. Ferns are a key focus of the evening, but literally any plant may show up for auction. I have often seen plants for auction representing species and even plant families that I have never seen before. Palm species always seem to find their way into the auction by way of many sources. Follow the link above for more information. It is always a fun night for the plant fanatics in S. Florida.
Here is a link to the auction topic from last year,
I can't wait to see what plants show up this year.

Serra do Cipó
By Davi Aguiar
I went to Serra do Cipó with my father yesterday, during the Brazilian Independence holiday, and I took some pictures of palms there!
The most common palm in the area we went was syagrus duardei or glaucens, (could be wrong, I am not good at identifying palms).
So I could find these two seemingly cultivated ones which could be hybrids:
Those in the wild were a lot shorter:
There was some of these syagrus which I could not identify:
There were also allagoptera:
There were also these geonoma which I could not identify, as well:
I recommend that those of you who happen to come to Belo Horizonte take a trip to Serra do Cipó, which is about 100km away from the city. Even a one day trip is worth it.
