    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.

    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 brought this Coccothrinax crinita home in my suitcase in 2009 from Paul and my trip to visit Ken Johnson in Florida. Two spear pulls and 11 years later I finally removed the rabbit cage today.

    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.

    So in 2006 my first palm purchase ever included a 1 gallon P. Torallyi. Not knowing how gig it would get I planted it out. It survived my early years of under-watering ... full sun exposure. Seems to love cold and hate humidity and heat. Thought it was dead several different times, but it is still going. Hard to get pictures of it's size but the growing point is now about 12 feet up. measred around the base tonight and it is 10ft around. 120 inches or 305 cm.

    Overwhelmed by the spectacular display of palms at the Singapore Botanic Garden, I layed down to rest on the grass. When I opened my eyes and looked up, this is what I saw...and instantly fell in love. It truly is the most beautiful and graceful palm I have ever seen.... IMG_0668.MOV

    The Hawaii Island Palm Society was fortunate to have Saúl Hoyes-Gomez tell us about his recent discovery of this insanely beautiful palm. In his own words, with his own photos, this is a half hour presentation of the difficulties and excitement of not only discovering a new species, but a new genus of palm that is arguably the most beautiful palm in all of South America. Enjoy and learn. CLICK HERE

    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
