    Which Geonoma sp is this?

    You are right. I also don't know what else it could be.

    Make your own zone map!

    Would you mind reposting this? You did a great job, but photobucket doesn't want to cooperate anymore.
  4. Nothing beats Palm Gain IMO. I've used it three times per year for the last three years and the results are spectacular. I have a lot of organic material in my soil as well but, since the use of Palm Gain, all my palms are healthier and growing at a higher rate of speed. Last feeding of the year is mid October.

    What’s going on with my Queen

    If it was planted a couple of months ago, my opinion is shock. Queen palms are often growing in swamps in their natural habitat so it's really nearly almost impossible to overwater them.
  6. Chorisia **Now Cebia** speciosa does well in 9b and is at least worth trialing more in favorable 9a areas. Obviously you'd want to grow them up a bit before planting in 9a though. C. insignis, one or two other harder to find sp. from South America, and possibly another species from the southern region of Sonora in the N.W. area of Mexico might also be acouple others that would come close hardiness-wise.

    Rhopalostylis sapida pics

    That's interesting. There's plenty of ancient nikau growing under two very large old Kahikatea (estimated around 700 years old) in a swampy gully not far from where I live. I took a few photos when I first saw those impressive trees a few years back. Sorry for the bad photo quality but It's pretty dark down there and my cameras not very good, but better than nothing I guess. I don't think Rhopalostylis sapida can ever get too much water.

    Happy Bithday, Kris!

    Dear John And Dear Ed, Thanks very much for your wishes. Lots of love, Kris.
  10. Anyone know any trees in that subfamily that can tolerate 9B? Also is there any species that can tolerate any colder?

  13. Btw, I don't believe this to be a argument, but a fact. Mist of the Phillipenes GDP relies on it.

    Remarkable palms of Tampa Bay

    Majesties As I've noted elsewhere, there are some big majesty's growing in NW Hillsborough. There must be something different with the soil to where they're able to prosper. I just stumbled upon these tonight and thought you all might want to see.

    It appears to be Mammillaria camptotricha (decipiens subs. camptotricha) Hi 95˚, Lo 73˚

    TRULY cold hardy palms ? For zone 6 ?

    Plant trachies along foundation of your house. Youll never have to winterize!
  17. Biggest CIDP ever, from a Taco Bell in Jacksonville, FL, and then some other palms from Orlando and cocoa Beach. Another CIDP at Disney, and some Queens? At Cocoa beach. Some small palm, not sure what it is, from a hotel next to the Taco Bell in Jacksonville. I have a lot more from Bogota, Florida, Miami, and Myrtle as well, and from Hunting Island State Park near Hilton Head, SC. I need to make a Palm album
  18. That’s in North Carolina? It looks pretty good!
  19. Nice! Thanks for the info! That one looks pretty trunked, but the ones here in NMB definitely looking a bit healthier! Lol. I think the CIDP’s here actually look better than the ones I saw in Charleston, strangely enough. I think North Myrtle Beach has great soil, and dedicated gardeners.

    15 gal B. alfredii 4 sale

    $80 is a steal for those. I'd be all over them if I were in LA.

    Potted Cabbage Palm

    Yes, the pot had one 1" hole in the center and we added at least twenty more 1/4" holes. In the bottom of the pot, I had a terracotta saucer the perfect size that I turned upside down and drilled another twelve or so 1/4" holes. From there, I filled the pot with a lot of professional mix and additional perlite. I ran out of mix so I added peat, fine nuggets, and a humus/compost mix. The tree is potted to the original dirt line from where it was dug up. (BTW, the palm was "hurricane cut" for shipping.) I have drenched the pot and water runs easily out the bottom.
  23. Wonder how this one turned out https://www.google.com/maps/@33.8845109,-78.451548,3a,75y,312.05h,85.74t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1suelZuevflJtXC2rmfZVaQw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  24. Sabal Palmetto are quite a bit hardier, and their native range is larger than the areas on the east coast than where you can reliably grow CIDP. Sabals when not faced with ocean winds can be found in Virginia beach and Norfolk and as northeast as Raleigh NC though they are more marginal there. trunking Canary island date palms are seldom seen north of southern coastal NC . heres one Big one I found in Ocean Isle beach NC.. Ones this size seem to be rare north of myrtle beach while small non trunked ones seem more common until Ocracoke . https://www.google.com/maps/@33.8903651,-78.4255413,3a,28.7y,132.55h,91.65t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sH_ENNB15kYEBasOAUK_I4Q!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
