New Leaf Thread --we haven't had one in a while

The recent rains have been good to the plants and they're looking a lot more lush. Seems like all the palms are opening new leaves and showing significant increase in size.

Tahina Spectabilis

A recent storm damaged the older leaves (and totally wrecked all the leaves on another one) of this Licuala Sumawongii.

This new leaf is a sight for sore eyes.

What new leaves are opening in your neck of the woods?

Coccothrinax Miraguama but I think this is actually a hybrid

Copernicia fallaensis. The newer leaves are distinctly taller-- had a growth spurt ever since I put it in the ground this year.

I'm not sure what kind of coccothrinax this is but the leaves are very very stiff

Actinokentia divaricata taken last night.

post-1729-12811833312154_thumb.jpg

Taken this morning. This does not happen often as this is a slow palm.

Nice!

First time I've heard of that palm.

Nice!

First time I've heard of that palm.

Gene - it is from New Caledonia. Not encountered often but they are around. Very slow and not on the inexpensive side as well due to that slow growth. sad.gif

Best regards,

MooseKnuckle- That one hasn't made its way here yet.

Jeff in Costa Rica -I like your selection of palms. Gorgeous color on the Metroxylon. I only have M.vitiense only comes out green. Is that unknown Chamaedorea Sp. endemic to Costa Rica?

Liciala Ramsaii-- This onse is fighting for air space. The kerriodoxa is crowding him out.

These two photos show the variations between plants within the same species. J. Altifrons with skinny leaves-- I am even wondering if this might be a lanceolata

Areca vestiara red leaf form. I killed a few because I put them on too sunny a spot and they didn't survive summer. This one might be my sole survivor.\post-1017-12812204691521_thumb.jpg

Everything is looking so nice with the rain, Gene... I can't wait till mine starts... My Tahina is just sitting there quietly, waiting for the soil to warm up & humidity to rise... At least it is still alive after being attacked by horses :angry:

Jeff,

Gorgeous Metroxylon!!

Regards, Ari :)

Gileno- You have enough palms to start a full blown nursery!

How big is the Dypsis pinnatifrons? It looks like it already has fully developed mature looking leaves. Mine are still in the skinny leaf stage and the leaves are still green when they come out. They are suppose to be red when they emerge right?

Pritchardia Pacifica. Probably the best looking speceis in the Genus
