    Joseph, I notice you live in the Tampa area. If you would like to grow a Butiagrus Palm (Mule) I do have a real nice potted one in need of a home. Scott

    Proud of my restraint when the sample lady at Costco insisted that Acai berries only grow on a special bush in Brazil, denying that it A: comes from a palm, B: can be grown in Hawaii, C: is anything but what her boss and the internet told her. I said cheers and walked away after two tries.

    I don't remember dreams often but last night I had a very vivid and intricate dream which involved hunting down a certain Pritchardia species... I think I may have a problem!

    I have a nice Pritchardia bakeri for you, it should do really well in Manoa, just keep it wettish at first. I hopefully will soon have a collection permit from DNLR to allow me to wild collect, since it has just now made the endangered list, and is recognized as a separate species. aloha

    Hey Rafael, how is it going? Any new updates on your garden? This February has been under average in much of Iberia, any major issue in your place? Regards!

    Hopefully make it back over to Kauai soon, I would love to go hike up powerline, but have heard from a running group, that it is basically impassable. If you are ever on Oahu and want to go see P. bakeri and/or P. marti there are some at the top of our valley, Kuliouou, in east Oahu. Lots of pictures of bakeri in palmpedia encyclopedia that I have taken. aloha Colin Peters

    Hey Ben OK...I see you're from the great state of OK...I have for its second winter coming up a McCurtain County Sabal in ground and ready for winter number two...stupidly, I ordered it online in January...it arrived promptly and not having any place to adequately winter it, I put it (still in its pot) under my protected Medi-Fan (see shelter palm below) and it did so well I had to keep an eye on it over the winter to make sure the pot didn't dry out...sent its tap root right out of the bottom of the pot...anyway...it's in ground now...nice blue hue to it...

    Chris, I have one 15 gallon D. onielihensis for $250. It is very tall (about 6 feet) in full sun but is not profusely clumping. I bought it for my yard a couple years ago from Rancho Soledad and then my Onielhensis X baronii really started growing and I have very limited space left to plant so it is still in a pot. 760-420-5982

    I need to check this site more often than once per year or so! Here's a few more pics of the Becce fenestralis in my yard. If memory serves me well, a big if, it went in the ground about 17 years ago from a 15 gal pot. I think I got it at a CFPACS meeting. It has been at least as hardy as the Royals in the yard and did not miss a beat when we had the two lousy winters a few years back. No luck with viable seed yet. That's ten ft of clear trunk; pics taken yesterday from on top of the roof.

    Looks like a little bit of rain on Thursday, at least enough to clean off the dust with really clean water.
