And a huggable little Bactris setulosa!

Excuse me sir?  Are you all right?

"I'm (giggle) fine, yes, dandy (giggle), excuse me . . . "

That is a spiny expletive. . . .

Dave,

You lead a fascinating life :D

And Zac,

since we're talking Chambeyronias in that other thread, here are two seedlings. A "standard" macrocarpa on the left and a hookeri on the right.

I posted something recently about some mystery Dypsis (I know, thats all we need is another mystery Dypsis) seedlings that I recieved from Floribunda as Dypsis Onilahensis. These are completely differant from any Dypsis seedling I have ever grown and are amazingly beautifull! They have a purple to burgandy petioleon yhe newest frond that stays that way for months. The new spear has the same color with vertical lime green stripes. They have stiff droopy leaflets a heel and are reasonably fast growing. Anybody wanna guess?

Orania trispatha, started in a 4"by14" deep pot. This is needed because of the long tap root that it first puts out.

After I posted the above comment (a few posts up) I saw your photo of the D. sp. florenceii. John Dransfield believes this to be Dypsis paludosa. Not sure if he posted this in a previous thread.

Bo,

    Good point. Alot of us still refer to this palm under this name because we still don't know what it really is. So, like others, We will have to wait until the new book comes out.

Mauritiella armata just starting to come up. I have found that these are sporadic in coming up, taking many months to germinate.
