First steps in palm growing. After moving into my new home in central Florida a year ago, I created a new landscape outside my veranda using native palms and tropicals. Thes pictures document how my palms are growing. Species include Florida native Coccothrinax Argentata, Sabal minor (Dwarf Palm), Zamia Floridana (Coontie), and the non native Chamaedorea cataractarum (Cat palm).
30 years in the making... I sketched this house design when I was 18, and 'nursed' palms and other exotics over the early years to plant out here. A passion and fantasy that came true. Built it in 2006, left in 2015.
Here are some pictures of my newly constructed tube vivarium. It has a central structure made from melted ABS pipe covered in epoxy/clay and Epiweb coated in soil/clay mixture acting as conduit for irrigation and electrical. Access along the seam of the rolled up Polycarbonate sheet. Will showcase various Epiphytic plants in a natural arrangement.
