My largest Orania ravaka from Madagascar. It's 3 1/2' tall now and has been planted almost 2 years.

It seems as though you position your palms and cycads so they can be shown off in photos.  Thanks for posting such fine examples of palms I am growing (D. onilahensis, carlsmithii, Kentiopsis, Chambeyronia, Beccariophoenix), I can hope mine look like yours someday.  You've certainly got me interested in Zamias and other cycads I am not growing.  Nice variagated Caryota and Clinostigma harlandii.

Hi jeff, you sure do work hard, do you get time to sleep at all ? Totaly amazing and great growth,those copernicas must be more than 5 years old ??? the calyptrocalyx would love some of those protected gardens, C.mara (elegans) will take full sun and are very strong plants, simular to laccospadix (not as cold tolerant ) but you could plant in same situation. same with the C. sp (puah) bright red new leaf. Your ptychosperma lauterbachii looks a little different than the ones we have here, our ones have a leaf like P.elegans but half the length and are heavely recurved, I will send you a photo. Anyway congratulations on one of the best gardens i've seen in a long time !!!!! keep planting!!If  every one put this much work back into the land we all would be living in paradise. [ we can all see you are living in paradise and if we all planted like you - the unpredictable weather could be different - no hurricanes even.]

The old name for this was Aiphanes vincentiana. Not sure what the new species name is. Maybe A. minima.

A grouping of Chamaedorea metallica. There's the normal entire leaf form along with some split leaf form mixed in.

Wow, so much has changed in your garden in 11.5 years. Hardly any grass left now. BS Man about Palms can attest to the big change. :wub:

I'd say put Ryan to work with updated pics, but I'm sure he's swamped with Extravaganza photos!

That was amazing Jeff. Thank you for posting - I had not seen this thread. I would live to see your place in person if you are doing another tour sometime.
