Not many palms aren't growing somewhere in Orlando these days.

Since no one has posted pictures yet I'll bite. Be forwarded though mine are probably nothing special compared to other palm tree photos on this site.

A Syagrus Romanzoffiana  (Queen Palm) which I salvaged out of an abandoned lot near Lakeland. It didn't look to good when I first planted it, but since then has took off like a rocket.

A cluster of Adonidia I got from Home Depot. While of decent size when I got them I've been battling to keep these from getting too yellow.

A set of three Chamaedorea cataractarum I used to replace a dead bush on the front of my house and form a privacy hedge. 

And finally my Hyophorbe Lagenicaulis I'm sure some of you remember from my redneck greenhouse thread.

    • Why Are Sabal palmetto "Not Native" To the Myrtle Beach Area?
      By PalmTreeDude
      Why are Sabal palmetto not shown as native to the Myrtle Beach area? Is it because there isn't that many wetlands there like in the southern coastal portion of SC? But you would still think that they would hug the coast line tightly. I have been to the area many times and I remember seeing them out in the woods by a swamp (one of the moments that sparked my palm interest) but I don't know if they were naturalized or not, but it was by a gas station, not hotels or anything like that. What is up with this?

    • Anyone Know of Any Good eBay Seed Sellers?
      By PalmTreeDude
      Does anyone know of any good eBay seed sellers? I keep seeing Sabal minor seeds for sale and then in the picture it is a Sabal palmetto or Sabal etonia, and I don't trust that, I want to make sure I get the seeds of the plant I wanted. Any really trusted eBay sellers anyone can refer me to? 
    • Phoenix dactylifera Hardiness?
      By PalmTreeDude
      I heard that Phoenix dactylifera is hardy to zone 8b, is this true? For example, in this picture of the S.C. USDA zones would it do fine in all of the highlighted zone 8b areas? 

    • Anyone Growing Acoelorraphe wrightii?
      By PalmTreeDude
      Is anyone growing any Acoelorraphe wrightii? If so how cold hardy is it, I am assuming 9b or a warmer 9a? Pictures? Habitat picture? 
    • Mold On Germinating Date Palm Seeds!
      By PalmTreeDude
      There is mold growing on my date palm seeds! Even after making sure they were not wet and getting off of the sugary date stuff off they still grew mold... of course... I noticed this last week and was just going to trash them. But even with the mold they are starting to germinate! What do I do? I thought the mold killed them? Or not? SOS! This is a really sticky situation.
