Did you go along the walking track that goes up the mountain behind the gardens? It's worthwhile, there's some really tall Lepidozamia hopei. That species is the tallest growing of all the Cycads.

No, but I want to do that. I only had a small amount of free time. I leave for another work trip to Papua New Guinea soon, but when I get back, I want to explore the area more fully.

    • How To Get An Adrenaline Rush
      By PalmTreeDude
      Step 1: Walk into room.
      Step 2: Look in bags with palm seeds. 
      Step 3: See the little spear coming up.
      I love seeing these! They are Medjool Date Palms, basic but always fun to grow from seed!

      By Rose
      Anyone familiar with nurseries, garden centres near and in Cairns,  North Queensland? Im looking for unusual palms, foliage plants, Cordylines, Codiaeums that sort of thing? Will be there next week and would like to visit a few good ones in between diving amongst the fishes. Most on the internet seem to be either mail order or wholesalers. Any info would be very well recieved. Thanks.
    • Growing in the Rain
      By PalmatierMeg
      TS Alberto is scheduled to wash out Memorial Day weekend here and so far has. The past 10 days have been exceptionally rainy here so my palms and other plants have shifted to growing overdrive. I can't work outdoors during frequent downpours. Yesterday when the rain briefly cut back to a drizzle I grabbed my camera to record the start of an explosion of growth.
      First off, photos my three Latania species:
      Lantania loddigesii (blue, left) and L. lontaroides (red, right)

      Latania verschaffeltii - yellow Latan

    • Naturalized Palm Hot Spot, Florida
      By PalmTreeDude
      I found this area in Florida and there are all kinds of naturalized palms growing in this wooded area, I don't know if it used to be a palm farm or something but it is interesting to look around in on Google Maps. 


    • Golden Penda (Xanthostemon chrysanthus) blooming
      By paquicuba
      My on-year-old seedlings have started to bloom. I'm hoping these rare to South Florida trees will grow large enough to impress my neighbors.
