Here's a super slow grower for me-- Copernicia Hospita

post-1017-12816866148377_thumb.jpg

Probably just 2 leaves per year

post-1017-12816866456794_thumb.jpg

it's been in teh ground for a couple of years now and still hasn't sped up

My C. baileyana are not doing anything either, Gene. I wonder sometimes whether it is worth growing... and I should just plant something else in their place...

My Baileyana sped up after a year in the ground. They are slow but each new leaf coming out is distinctly taller than the last. THey are definitely beautiful enough to be worth the wait.

If you can get Copernicia Fallaensis that seems to be even faster. And I think it gets to be twice the size of the baileyana-- plus its bluish.

Hyphaene coriaceia -- not sure how that is spelled.

This is probably the slowest grower for me-- even worse than the cubans. Its been in teh ground 6 years and it only pits out 2 or 3 leaves a year. And the size of the leaf is practically the same each time-- no growth spurts.

THis one gets a bit of shade protection becuase it is in the midddle of a Metroxylon and a Carpoxylon but I think they do well in full sun just as long as you give them a lot of water. These grow in swamps and the bluish color in pams is suppose to be and adaptation for intense heat. The ones I had in really bright light showed the best color-- nice silvery blue

Ari,

These palms and Mauritia flexousa basically share the same habitat. Which means they do well with lots of sun if they are kept well watered. The name of the Mauritella here is Buritirana which mean Buriti like. The buriti is the Mauritia flexuosa.

This C. houailou has really started to take off. :D New leaves are a light salmon color. Seems to be a much faster grower than any other of my Chambeyronias.

When you buy another one, Gene... make sure they are almost purple when they are young. Then you will have silver bismarkia.

Five spears at once? that sounds like a record! A few more panoramic shots of that bismarckia, bill ?

This view from my front door is a little dark, the sun was on it's way home.

post-3769-12833135847742_thumb.jpg :unsure:

It gets clearer if you blow it up. There are two Bizzies; can't see the one in back.

Here's a shot of the two trees from another angle.

post-3769-12833145089915_thumb.jpg

The grassy area below is the site of a planned fishpond; don't hold your breath on it though.

Thanks for the pictures.

My red latan spear opened this afternoon. It has a fluroscent green colour inside, much like a cucumber. And of course it's very, very sharp on the edges

Your kainlas is nice, Bruce :). Mine is about the same size (maybe... hard to tell without any size comparison. Next time put beer bottle next to it :winkie: ). I am still too scared to plant it out though... Maybe next year.

That last one of yours... I kept thinking I should know it, but I can't think of it. It might come back to me...

Regards, Ari :)
