    Sabal Louisiana Growth

    I think because the fronds are collapsing and old fronds cut then currently mine would be approx 8' wide but new fronds are 6'+ so if they were to lay out side to side it would be 12'

    Southern Oregon - Brookings

    @Alex High Shelter cove is very similar climate to Brookings, only bit warmer year around and less rain. This water year in Brookings starting last Oct, we have had 72 inches at the Agriculture Station. Small but diverse microclimates are hard to imagine the differences in just one mile. Places like these along the coast can have incredible different averages something like an Island. For example three miles north of Brookings at Whales Head this years total water year is over 100 inches with average temperatures 15 degrees less. Data and climate information of these areas represent in most cases a single station in a single location, climate just a mile away from these stations can be very different.

    I just bought a Thailand Giant EE

    Elephant ear. It's the common name in the US for nearly anything in the Colocasia, Alocasia, Caladium, or any other Aroid genus with big heart shaped leaves. Such as the OP's Leucocasia

    Bambusa space requirements

    Your bamboo should start producing mature size culms for that species in 7-10 years. With that, each will continue to grow outward in an attempt to establish a forest. This can be kept in check by thinning the older inner culms as well as removing the ones that grow up on the outer edge of the clump. My recommendation for planting if it is done as a row and not open, individual specimens is to plant them no closer than 8 feet apart, as within 3 to 4 years that gap will disapper.... Overall I have eight varities of clumping bamboo. Bambusa Textilis gracilis Bambusa pervariabilis viridistriata Dendrocalamus validus

    Jacksonville,FL Queen palms

    That one could be an anomaly, but I think its all about location for this one. There's an old pine stump next to it that could be supplying the ground with some well needed nutrition aside from my normal cycle of fertilization, but that's just a theory. The other three I have in the ground remained potted for several years and even now once in the ground they are barely 6 feet tall overall. Which leads me back to nutrition, as I recall two queens I planted at my mom's from 3 gallon size grew super fast with much more frequent feedings of granular fertilizer.
  9. I got a juvenile plant under this name and turned out desperately slow. Besides petioles are armed with very tiny spines, initially they were almost invisible and one could feel them only by the touch. No they are visually more perceivable and can be caught in a picture, but they are still tiny. Is that a common trait for this sp or only related to certain ecotype(s) or strains?

    Bambusa space requirements

    Not side by side, but I am still undecided as to their final siting. I would like to see your clump if you are able and willing at some point. How long has it taken to reach the 6' of span? I am starting with some surprisingly robust 1-gal plants that I got off ebay out of Florida, near Gainesville.

    Jacksonville,FL Queen palms

    Smaller palm next to the Tiki is Jubaea chilensis and the larger one beyond that is a Butia hybrid.
  12. Leelanau Palms

    Washingtonia Filifera seeds

    You might want to get a thermometer and check out the temps at both locations

    Free Chamadorea radicalis seeds

    Let me know if you want some . I also have C. Microspadix. I already have many babies from both so …. Harry

    I don’t have many potted palms but it looks like it has the right mix. Harry
  15. A local mall has them in planters out front of a restaurant. They are already fading and looking terrible. It’s like they went to a dollar store and bought them . I sent a picture to one of my cycling friends who also collects palms and we both had a good laugh! Here in Ventura County , where we can grow a lot of very low maintenece attractive palms …. Harry , not fond of the plasticarum species or phoniecarum either

    Is this Livistona Chinensis?

    I have one and I planted it down on my hill due to the teeth . It was apparent early on . So there are varieties that don’t have these teeth? My L. Australis has them as well. Both are down there for the same reason. Both are full sun on south facing slope and beautiful but not friendly. Harry
  17. Dominion 2L works great. The key is to treat plants before you see infestation.

    Really nice Kim! My Hovomantsina recently dropped a frond as well and revealed its first flower.

    Nice work
  22. Jim in Los Altos

    Is this Livistona Chinensis?

    Many L. chinensis have no teeth or very tiny ones. Most of mine have smooth petioles both in shade and full sun.

    Is this Livistona Chinensis?

    my shade growing Livistona chinensis grows petioles without any "teeth"....

    Southern Oregon - Brookings

    That is within the area called “the Lost Coast”. Very remote and isolated, I think of anywhere in the lower 48.

    Spectacular. Both those trees are virtually a no go here in CA. Well done. -dale
