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,
Hi Matt, I am going to be down at the other Matt's house to pick up a palm, Arenga hookeriana, something I have been looking for a long time, on Sunday morning sometime and was wondering if you are up for a palm visit. I think Larry Black is going to go with me. We have seen lots of pictures of your wonderful garden but have never seen the real deal yet. Would love to see your Carpoxylon in beast mode and your 4 forms of Dypsis Hetromorpha along with everything else. So, we were just wondering if you are up for a visit, if it's not convenient no problem, just thought I would ask since we are going to be close by.
