    Chamaedorea 'Soledad'

    I've had mine for over 20 years and they are prolific. Darold's guess is as good as any and I tend to agree. Even the folks who were around RSN back in the day couldn't really give a definitive answer.

    I have heard of Shoeless Joe Jackson but never Shoeless DoomsDave. Man, you have tons of nice palms. Wish I could take some off your hands (or feet). jimmyt
  8. I live in a very dry climate high up in the desert of Mexico. Our days Are rarely cold just the nights in wintertime. I see Queens being grown here on a large scale and IT make me wonder if i can plant out my red latan in the ground and some other less cold Hardy palms? Thanks

    Rainfall was over by noon here. We got 2" of desperately needed moisture. Haven't had any rain since Dorian left less than 2" in early Sep. Hot and dry for weeks is no way to segue into winter dry season.

    If I had to choose just one it would probably be Cyrtostachys renda. But that’s a really tough call. There are so many that would be a close second. Cocos, Adonidia, Roystonea, foxtails... Forcing me to choose just one is cruel.

    Predictions For This Coming Winter Along The Gulf Coast

    ** Veering off topic for a sec, I wanted to pass along something I encourage any ..and everyone to check out when you have some time, esp. if you enjoy storm chasing / time lapse videos. While awaiting the next release from him, Well known ( and respected ) storm chaser / videographer Mike Olbinski is working on getting this year's installment of Monsoon season released. While dismal overall, there were some epic highlights, if you were in the right location, at the right time.. He also films across the Plains, in Texas and New Mexico during " storm season" Have thought about posting one of his shorter vids here, but not sure how much space one would take up. He also posts videos regarding proper technique for anyone wanting to capture such footage themselves. To put it simply, his videos are spectacular. Not sure I'd use some of the music he has, but respect the inclusion. Haven't yet had the opportunity to meet him in person, but can't get enough of his work. Would be great if someone in Florida, the southeast, where ever else.. would start posting similar videos on such a level. ( maybe out there, just haven't come across them myself ) Regardless, some nice eye candy for everyone to enjoy.

    Tree recommendations needed

    I actually found a nursery in Riverside that sells a lot of different trees from San Marcos. A 5 gallon is $40 but at least it's not a long drive.

    And Beccariophoenix alfredii Five 15 gallons at $80 each
  17. Here in California I’ve noticed some of the nursery owners who post their prices here raise their prices for the same palms each year. So I’ve seen the opposite in my area.

    Chamaedorea 'Soledad'

    My guess would be perhaps something like Chamaedorea radicalis x C. glaucifolia. I have a good group of tree form radicalis, but this 'Soledad' seems different.

    Chamaedorea 'Soledad'

    Hello Darold I have Chamaedorea 'Soledad', they are still very small, and so far I see no difference with chamaedorea radicalis tree forms

    Predictions For This Coming Winter Along The Gulf Coast

    For each reference, tough to say.. Both NOAA and the 3 month outlooks posted by the CPC had a good handle on our " non-soon " this summer. Daily 6-10 or 10-14 day updates were off, quite a bit in some cases ( suggesting above average chances for more rain here, when infact nothing, or very little was seen across most of the state ) NMME model data over the same time period was mixed, but you could see a trend as time went on ( X %' age of models used in their particular calculations leaning more in one direction than another ). I almost posted some of their data here awhile back, but with so many maps, figured it might be more confusing to interpret. I myself look over both the month to month data, as well as 3 month data there also ( US Temp / Precip. maps. Analyse worldwide SST. maps for trends also ) Overall NMME data is updated on / around the 8th of each month. One things for sure, and not sure why, but day to day accuracy with the GFS has been poor lately, Take whatever is suggested with a grain of salt ( or two ). I also try to stay up to date with thoughts being shared by different forecasters I follow on Twitter. Judah Cohen, a forecaster in the North East, also puts out a weekly blog over on a site called AER. He's likely one of the best people to follow thru the winter in regards to what things like the Polar Vortex might be doing over a given period of time. As always though, the best of thoughts don't guarantee an outcome. We'd all be rich if that were possible, lol

    Chamaedorea 'Soledad'

    Darold, Years ago, I saw a palm listed as "Veitchia soledad" in a big box store which was actually nothing more than V. arecina. I'm not sure how they go about naming their palms. Like you, I assumed it was a hybrid, which it was not,at least as far as I could tell. Bret

    Thanks for posting !
  23. Hello to all, I encountered this palm at Rancho Soledad nursery. The sales person, Jessie, was unsure about the parentage. Don Hodel's book does not address this hybrid. Does anyone have information about this hybrid ? Thanks !
  24. Bubba - on my iPhone, when I "Create New Topic" or "Reply" there is an option near the bottom of the page that says "Click to Choose Files." From there you will have options like Take a Photo, Photo Library, or Browse. If you go to Photo Library, just click on the photo you care to upload. I believe it will then upload/attach and then Submit. Or Take a Photo right then. Or Browse if Photo or Video is elsewhere.
  25. This might not be anything new, but I've never seen a calla lily like this one before. Thought it was worth sharing. This one had the darkest foliage and covered the entire plant. Most of the ones I saw had the same dark flowers, but with green foliage. A few had darker areas on the foliage, but were mostly green.

    Fruit/Seed ID

    Agree, doesn't look like Tropical Almond to me as well. Fruits on those are typically move oval/ lense shaped, and have a hard, Almond-Like shell around the kernel when you remove the outter skin. Interesting.. stumped myself. There's a page over on Palomar Colleges' website that discusses / has pictures of various sea drifting fruits / seeds but didn't see anything that resembled those fruits.
