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.

Hmm... Palms more of the "exotic" type that do well there?

    • Trashy Spear Fully Pulled
      By PalmTreeDude
      Well... My Trachy spear pulled from the worst cold snap we have had here, the funny thing is my Butias, Mediterranean Fan Palm, and of course my Needle Palm are all thriving right now. I put most protection on the trachy and it is having the problem. The inner spear pulled but some fronds on the outside are green. Will it survive or is it likely dead?

    • A visit to an Oasis above the Old Pubelo
      By Silas_Sancona
      As mentioned in an earlier I thread in the "travel" section, I made another trip south to Tohono Chul to snap some pictures of the Palm Canyon exhibit, and various other things to share with everyone.. as well as pick up additional hard to find plants for my on going landscape renovation at the house, and colection. Additionally, I made a brief stop at a well respected cacti and succulent nursery on the far East side of town.. no pictures from there though.
      While a hot day by mid spring in Arizona standards, there was enough of an upsloping breeze to take the edge off. The trade off is its easy to forget to drink enough water. Anyway, a nice day for walking the grounds. 
      For those who have never been, this out of the way park/ garden is a Tucson treasure nestled further up on the north side of downtown among the areas famous thermal belt. Many years ago, Orange, Date, and Olive groves dotted the landscape before succumbing to a falling water table. While not as extensive today, there are still a few remnants of the areas past. One thing I found interesting when reading over a historical article related to this area's climate was that both Mangoes and Papaya were supposedly cultivated as well. For what it's worth, Guava, Citrus, and Quince were brought to the area when the Spanish settled north of Mexico.
      First up, Palm Canyon, a smallish replication of the Sonoran desert's tropical origins that exist down toward Guaymas and San Carlos. Many of the plants and palms are the same species you might encounter on a trip to Nacapule Canyon outside San Carlos. Others can still be found in places around the southern half of Arizona, and California.. if you know where to look. Ofcourse, Mexican Fan Palms are everywhere.. enjoy

    • Best Universal Palm Fertilizer?
      By PalmTreeDude
      What do you think is the best universal palm fertilizer? I have two Pindo Palms, 1 Mediterranean Fan Palm, one Needle Palm, one Windmill Palm, and soon some Sabal minor. Does anyone know of a palm fertilizer that will affect each one of these palms in a positive way? At the time I can not afford separate fertilizers for each palm species. Thank you for any help! If I can order it, can you please include the link to it as well? 
    • Spring/Summer special Palm list
      By Mark M @ S. Oceanside palms
      My Busy time of year for surfboard repair is quickly approaching but I finally had some time to make a list of available palms for sale. Many of you got your palms from me in the past as I have been growing for over 15 years and although I have downsized drastically in the last decade, I still have thousands of palms for sale. Most are in liners, one gallons and five gallons but I do have some larger things.  I started growing to "support my palm habit" and still just love growing palms.  I believe the most gratifying thing about a palm is growing it from seed but I understand wanting something just a little bigger.  I just don't really understand the gratification of buying something really big.  It's like adopting a teenager.....yuk.   Ha ha  Sorry I'm too busy to ship.  I am in Oceanside Ca.  at 1601 Griffin St. 92054  thanks, Mark  P.S. forgive my spelling or new names for palms, it's all from memory.
