    Noted landscape architect Peter Strelkow sent me this picture today from Cuenca, Ecuador where he has a second home. That palm is massive, and it's bluer than anyone I've ever seen. I wish it grew here in Florida. If I lived in California, I would grow thousands of these things, and change the landscape forever.

    Got my first rare-ish (ie: not from a big box store) palm in the ground. 15 gallon arenga engleri. I hope you’re all proud of yourselves. I’ve been lurking for months. Stealing knowledge, experience and ideas. Now I have the bug. It’s all of your collective faults.

    Here’s the 2 year update on these Pinanga Coronata. In just 2 years these have gone from 1 gallon plants to seed producing adults! And I’m happy to announce that they are fully blocking the road now which was the goal! 5 gallon paint bucket for scale: Removed the grass that was in between these clumps and made a planter which is filling in nicely. fast growing 11 year old daughter for scale view from the road above thanks for looking! P.S. I’ll probably be offering some seed from these in the future if there’s any interest.

    Was driving through an established neighborhood in the Dr. Phillips suburb of Orlando and found this drop-dead gorgeous mule palm. One of the things I like about it is that the leaves are perfectly flat and not twisted as seen with many other mules.

    I just came back from spending most of December in the tropics and suddenly the gloom of winter in Fresno feels colder and longer. At least this jubaeopsis cheers me up every morning. i snapped the picture quickly before my fingers went numb. (I know, I'm being dramatic.)

    When I moved here 17 years ago this piece of land was nothing but invasive exotics and weeds, plus lots of trash. It's not irrigated, the soil is terrible and nothing is fertilized due to the location next to a canal. The video starts at the newest planting and works down to the more mature area in front of my house. Everything was grown from seed from palms on my property. People seem to think I'm crazy because I work this land and keep it nice, they don't even pick up a piece of trash on there daily walk. It amazes me how lazy so many people are with no effort to improve the area around them.

    All pics in this post are Chamaedorea cataractarum. First pic is a fairly old specimen I collect seed from. Trunking and sections falling over with age/weight. Landscape maintenance people for the building hack off the sections that lay down for aesthetics, like the section on the left side in this pic as it's located on a commercial property. Following pics are a couple specimens from my container ranch sprouting suckers. Seed 1/2 dried and dry in the last pic. Nex

    long aereal roots. During raining season this river might grow 2 m high.

    Some photos of C. tepejilote in habitat (Nicaragua). sorry for the bad quality of the photos in the dark jungle. They even grow on top of rocks with almost no soil.

    Just thought I'd post a few photos of this beautiful little palm endemic to Mexico and Central America. I was lucky enough to get an entire leaf variation, it's an outstanding garden palm. Although it's fairly common in tropical gardens, it's still one of my favorites. The ole shovel for scale. Tim

    Before moving to Hawaii in 2017, I was completely unfamiliar with the genus Hydriastele. Once I started seeing them in gardens here, they quickly became some of my favorite palms. With no personal experience growing them, I was relying on what I could find online to determine the eventual height and I was basing their speed of growth off of that too. Well I ended up planting some of these too close together so some moving was needed. My original idea was to put the slower / smaller species in the front and the larger behind them. In the front were 2 Hydriastele Beguinii “Obi Island form” and then behind was Hydriastele Dransfieldii and then Hydriastele Cylindrocarpa in the back corner. The “obi islands” were growing faster than the Dransfieldii and with the large wedge shaped leaves, they were blocking the view of the palms behind them. So I decided to dig up one of the Obi islands and move to another part of the yard that had just opened up. and here it is in its new home:

    More Metaillca.. Out of focus, Male inflo. Some seedlings.. For all the talk of how much of a challenge it is to hand pollinate these.. never had any problems. Arizona sun? now that's a problem, lol.. Nice, pinnate- leaf form in a fellow palm talker's collection. Sarasota, Fl.
