Did you use to have a different Palm Talk name like Ag Agent? If so, did/do you still have a parajubaea in Las Cruces? I'd be fascinated to see how those palms fare there.
Do you know of any horticultural or palm clubs/groups in El Paso/Las Cruces area? I was just asking Chris Anderson from Albuquerque if he knew of any palms groups around the area. I used to live in Las Cruces when I was in Jr High. Then went back to Juárez when my dad finished his grad school. Now I live in LA but go back to visit my folks in EP regularly. I've always been interested in palms and other plants that can do well in our high desert climate, including palms, cycads, eucalyptus, agaves, citrus.
Btw, I will check to see if I have any other P. theophrastii's hiding amongst other plants back in EP. Let's keep on chatting.
All the best,
