  2. ...you ask your family and friends on vacation to bring back some palm seeds for you.

    Sabal palms and heels

    Some recent Sabals I’ve come across here in NorCal all of which exhibit a significant heal.
  5. My wife mentioned something similar to me when I told her about the last two coconut seeds which I "happened upon" in my garden (that sprouted not long after).
  6. Hi Everyone I took these pictures of Adenium multiflorum in habitat in the Kruger Park, South Africa.

    If you want to keep the brick wall, kill it immediately.

    Found a 15gal Jubaea Chilensis!

    Thank you! So now I'm considering getting a second 15gal. 2nd one would go into a spot with full morning sun to about 2pm, then partial sun in late afternoon. Is that okay? I assume it would just mean that it won't grow as fast as the other one in the full sun on slope.
  9. They aren't solitary but what about one variety of calyptrocalyx like boalak?
  10. I would like some input to what type of palms may be appropriate for planting outside of my wood fences. I am located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, zone 10b. The wood fence is 6' tall, runs in a north south direction. There is a narrow strip of dirt about 32" wide between the wood fence and the concrete sidewalk along the entire 75' length of the wood fence. Currently I have planted a mix of Simpson Stoppers and Jamaican Capers all along the fence. I would like to plant something a bit taller every 12' or so, may be palms, small palms not too tall, with roots not to exceed 24" deep (there is a sewer line under there about 28" down), solitary trunk type palms that do not spread in a cluster. Any suggestions?

    Hope for Livistona Chinensis?

    Sorry man. I would've been shocked if they survived. Even in Houston, survival of trunking L. chinensis isn't as great as this site would have you believe. Lots of dead ones.

    Found a 15gal Jubaea Chilensis!

    @Christopher Dillman that’s a real nice Jube. Give it both vertical and horizontal space; the trunk will get about six feet in diameter. Full sun if possible.

    Southern Hemisphere Growing Season 21/22

    The weather here has been a bit all over, four separate sprinkles of rain over the past six weeks totalling 17.2mm. But the weather in between dries it off instantly.

    Plumeria season 2019

    X2 ^ w/ " Bali Whril " ...or a seedling of it retained the double petaled form of that cultivar perhaps.. Have seen Aztec Gold and a couple other white / yellow flowering varieties occasionally produce flowers w/ an extra petal or two before. Thought there were a couple other double petaled flowering Plumeria being sold now, but not 100% certain. Honestly not a big fan of double/ triple flowered ~ anything ~ esp Plumeria and Hibiscus.

    Plumeria season 2019

    Could be an anomaly, many varieties put out 3-6 petals at times. Coloring looks a bit like Bali Whirl, the Plumeria world's only 10-pedal bloom. I've had one in my collection for 4 seasons now and this is the closest I've gotten to having a bloom open fully. They can be temperamental.

    Ficus microcarpa is a very common volunteer in South Florida. Old names are Ficus retusa and F. nitida. They frequently start as epiphytes. Is that one growing at the top of a wall with an overhang or ceiling directly above it? If so, I would look for growth above the ceiling and a possible roof leak.

    Hope for Livistona Chinensis?

    I am sad to say the two Livistona Chinensis on the right seem to have given up. One still has green fronds, but they have only emerged about 6” and haven’t moved in months. The other was in the same state, but fronds have turned brown. I’m expecting the “stalled” palm to do the same.

    Make your own zone map!

    I've noticed that people get emotionally invested in what they think their usda zone is lol It's like emotional grandeur applied to climate

    Soil moisture perhaps?

    Winter 21/22 predictions!

    Yes that was the super storm of 93. I was snowmobiling on the roads in my town. It was the only way you could get around .

    Winter 21/22 predictions!

    I saw an all black one in Maine over the summer
  22. Yes please save me some! It would be cool to meet at Raintree at some point. What other species do you have that are not on my list?

    Variation amongst Chamaerops humilis

    Patrick Schafer might still have a few of the Dick Douglas 'mutant'. (coolhybrids@yahoo.com) Be sure to mention that I sent you !
  24. SOLDIER #1: Where'd you get the Livistona seedling? ARTHUR: We found them. SOLDIER #1: Found them? In Mercea? The Livistona's tropical! ARTHUR: What do you mean? SOLDIER #1: Well, this is a temperate zone. ARTHUR: The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin or the plumber may seek warmer climes in winter yet these are not strangers to our land. SOLDIER #1: Are you suggesting palms migrate? ARTHUR: Not at all, they could be carried. SOLDIER #1: What -- a swallow carrying a Livistona seedling? ARTHUR: It could grip it by the husk! SOLDIER #1: It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a 1 pound Livistona seedling!

    Found a 15gal Jubaea Chilensis!

    Sounds like an ideal spot to me.

    Wanted to start planning!

    Yes, rumor has it that it will be held in Hawaii next year. Late summer I believe. Jeff
