    Don't complain, I only got 1mm out of it and by now the sun has burned all of that off.

    How to climate control an indoor palm room

    Did you ever figure out why your Christmas Palms weren't too happy?

    Dypsis lanceolata

    Interesting. I have a single trunk Lanceolata and it is way less hardy/robust than the multiple trunk version and tends to struggle (I did post it in the earlier thread you started). Here attached is the same picture of both side by side. The single trunk version is on the left and it was purchased in 2002 at Plant Depot, a local nursery in Dana Point. The pot it was in had a JD Anderson label, so it may have come from his Fallbrook nursery at the time.

    Some of my palms after the rain

    hahaha Yeah! my only casualty was the wodyetia, which toppled over last fall and was hanging on with only 2 roots. An injury like that on a marginal palm was sure to lead to its demise.
  10. I'm going to cheat a little because it was an exciting find. The base of the inflorescence sheath on a Dypsis onilahensis hybrid (unknown x). It's the first time and was a bit difficult to get in to photograph because of an adjacent palm. So not seeding yet, but part of the process of producing seed.

    cold hardy palms in houston

    For the right price they make great potted patio palms. There’s been one growing in the ground at the Kemah boardwalk for two years now. It won’t be long term, but it’ll be interesting to see just how long it lasts.

    cold hardy palms in houston

    If anyone has stimulus money to burn and wants to do extreme zone pushing in Houston Joseph's nursery in Pearland has a new shipment of Manila Palms for sale. They had big ones and small ones last year, but so far this year they just have the big ones.

    Palms in the California rain

    Same here DD. Just under 3 inches of rain this week here in MV. I'll take it!! My palms (and happy weeds) are loving it. Although the sun is out for now, should get another inch or so tomorrow through Friday.

    Cool Double Coconut

    Where/what the heck is this "Old Monkey Jungle"? I've never heard of it and I can't live far from you.

    Guess That Genus

    Wow, that Nannorrhops is awesome! How old is it? Your stretch out Riverside looks sweet! It kinda resembles a Mexicana to me. Riverside's are pretty hefty but I've never seen one that size. Still could put alot of mass on

    Palm’s Throughout Destin Florida

    Your Queens look good to me. I wouldn’t worry about little anomalies here and there. As long as you have spear growth and everything is green, you’re good. Whatever is causing it, they’ll surely grow out of it over the summer.

    Rain (!!!) In Darwin, NT Australia

    The northern Wet, whilst generally poor this season, is hanging in there. Massive downpour in the industrial area between Darwin and Palmerston this morning.....98mm ( 4" ) in an hour or so from one report. This pic is of the Stuart Highway at the 11 mile ( Pinelands ) Where I'm located 10klm ( 6 miles ) away in the Desierto de Leanyer I scored 50 points ( 12mm ) Sigh....

    Palm’s Throughout Destin Florida

    It came in a 2.2 gallon pot. I have no method really. I just stick them in the ground and add a little bit of garden soil or peat moss mixed in with native soil. After that I keep everything mulched and try to make sure they get watered twice a week in the summer, when most of the growth happens. Also give them some Palmgain two two three times a year. I have seen several recent Queen plantings here where after planting the palms just sit there many many months doing nothing and turning yellowish. I suspect that’s because people add fertilizer in the hole when planting thinking it’ll help them get going faster. When in fact the opposite happens and the roots just get burned by the fertilizer.
  23. - 5:33PM - I didn't know where to go next, but I did hear something about the Jade Vine, Strongylodon macrobotrys, flowering, so I headed to the pergola near the driveway. I found a couple of newly emerging pendant racemes on their way down from above. There were spikes heading down through the leaf litter, so more blooms were on their way. This particular raceme would be pressed into service during the second weekend of the sale. - I heard voices and followed them. In any other situation this may be scary, but not on a garden tour. I crossed over the driveway and decided to catch up to one of the groups heading west through the front yard. Passing in front of the garage once again, I noticed the setting sun illuminating the Bismarck Palms, Bismarckia nobilis, that line the driveway. A cool shot, I always try to take it when the timing is right. (B) I made the turn by the garage and noticed Judy and Darryl had made it to the new planting area in the front yard. - In the newer planting area, there were all sorts of surprises that were continually being added to the plot of land. A young Tahina spectabilis, how is this possible? A mystery indeed. - 5:37PM - Along the fence, a rapidly growing Bauhinia bidentata was putting on a show of colorful flowers and bronze-orange foliage. Unlike the tree forming types of Bauhinia, this species is strictly a vine. Ryan

    First is the backyard queen, second is the newest edition, and last but not least, the largest queen. All with new growth!
  25. Leonel Mera's farm will definitely give you a palm overload! So many species,too little time... I am very thankful to both Leonel Mera and GMann for providing me this once in a lifetime experience.Danger seemed to be lurking around every corner for us, as the terrain was unforgiving to be sure, but we made it. aztropic Mesa,Arizona
