Palm YouTubers

8 posts in this topic

If you watch anything about palms on YouTube, who do you watch? I know if you do watch YouTube videos about palms you probably watch a lot of videos from different people (I do too), but if you ever come back to certine channels, which ones? I mainly watch BananaJSSI and The Palm Fiend. Also the IPS has a channel but I am not sure if they use it these days, here is the link. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkcr0EhbVXmIp80dtFdqhjA

It doesn't look like they use that channel anymore (IPS Youtube channel; last video was 2 years ago!). I currently watch hardly any Youtube videos about palms (I don't watch that many Youtube videos in general anyway though).

I watch many palm and tropical plant related YouTube videos, as well as upload my own. The last one I uploaded was in September of 2017, just three days before my property was ravaged by Hurricane Irma. I had planned on uploading a Hurricane Irma aftermath video, but just haven't been motivated enough to do it yet. I lost a few palm species, and some large trees. Also, I lost about 10-12 large slash pine trees. They weren't blown down, they were traumatized to the point where pine bark beetles infected and killed them.

Nice video, sorry to hear about the damage from the hurricane. Please upload that aftermath video! I browsed some of your videos and they are really well made, I like them!

I think I will try to start making the post Irma video this week. I have pics and video both on my cell phone and camera. I need to upload all of them to my video editing program. My biggest loss in palms was my tallest Syagrus botryophora, followed by the loss of my shorter one. Both were snapped in two halfway up their trunks. I had big mature queen palms also snapped in two. My county was second hardest it in Florida, as we were in the right-side of the eye (the worst side).

He's a low key member of ours. Honestly humble.

And he's spot on with his videos!

Yeah I have seen his videos, they are really good. I like how when he talks about a palm he finds one and shows it to us. Speaking of him being a member, I am surprised Banana JSSI is not a member here.

I believe there is a pnw palm forum?  I have never checked. Is so, he may be a member there.

    • The Palm Fiend Youtube
      By ParkerK
      Anyone else hooked on Christian’s Youtube channel?
      https://www.youtube.com/user/TheCfkingfish
      If you haven’t seen his videos, I’ve been watching since dia uno and this dude’s leading the front on palmy vlogging.
      Thought I’d bridge the blog-vlog platform, support his efforts and commerate the guy for the time he spends on these videos, his channel and his willingness to share the information he knows through this entertaining medium.
      @cfkingfish lol hope this didn’t embarrass you, not my intention. There’s a bravery in what you do and I think it’s radical. Big ups bruddaman. Please keep the vids flowing.
    • Is It a Palm Seed?

      I found this seed in Florida and am wondering if it looks like a palm seed. I don't know if it will grow or not but I'm going to try to germinate it, whatever it is. 

    • Florida Palms! (West Palm Beach Area)
      By PalmTreeDude
      I am currently in Florida (West Palm Beach area). I am making this thread to share a lot of the palms that I see. Most of these palms are pretty common (especially to people who live in Florida). So here they are. I will post new pictures on this thread over time. 

    • Australian Palms In Habitat?
      By PalmTreeDude
      Do any Australians (or people who visited Australia) on the forum have any pictures of some Australian palms in habitat? I know there are scattered pictures around the forum but I thought I should make a thread specifically about them. Please post your pictures if you have any. Also, what are the cold hardiest Australian palms? 
    • Any Native Palms In South Korea?
      By PalmTreeDude
      Are there any palms native to South Korea? According to this map, it gets to zone 9 on the mainland and zone 10 on an Island (which I know has palms planted).
