what have you planted recently?

It's the rainy season here so it's the ideal time to plant stuff !

If it ever stops raining that is.

First up is my one and only Corpyha that germinated from the seeds that Kris sent me. It was beginning to get pot bound but teh only thing stopping me was deciding on where to plant it.

Finally bit the bullet I hope this spot is the right one

Also planted this group of 4 Hydrastelle flabelatta between 2 Pelagodoxa henryana-- kind of having a "non split leaf" theme going on in this area.

Chambey houilou, Burr. veillardii, Pinanga coronata blunt leaf, Cyphosperma nabutini . . .

Further back?

Have to go to the darkness of what once was . . . .

2 Sabal 'lisa's at my in-law's and an Allagoptera caudescens under their biggest oak. Next to go in the ground is a Copernicia glabrescens.

I recently planted onne Nannorhops ritchiana, a Sabal causiarum and a Trithrinax campestris. This is my third try with the Trithrinax. I've had great success with Tri. acanthocoma (12' tall now), but I keep killing campestris: crown rot seems to get them. I've started with a larger campestris this time, so I have high hopes.

I'm working on it Don.

Gene, I have two smaller versions of those Corypha from Kris. For some reason my seeds had a delayed reaction and didn't germinate until a full year after I received them. Right now they only have strap leaves and they are still in 5 gal pots because I don't know where to plant them. Btw, love that Zamia.

Looks like you guys have been really busy. Corypha, you don't mess around. :rolleyes: That's a beautiful Zamia, Gene. Jeff, lots of variety going in the ground, your collection is expanding.

I've done some planting too, with a little help from my neighbor, Bo. :)

8 Dictyocaryum lamarckianum

3 Carpoxylon macrospermum

3 Areca macrocalyx

8 Licuala grandis

3 Dypsis procera

3 Iguanura wallichiana

4 Calyptrocalyx sp.

1 Wettinia hirsuta

The Dictyocaryum went all around this lava feature.

post-216-0-30958600-1341983307_thumb.jpg

The Carpoxylons, A. macrocalyx, and L. grandis are grouped along a path (in progress). This area is quite rough still, and lots of lava tubes.

post-216-0-78487800-1341983323_thumb.jpg

The clumping D. procera, Calyptrocalyx, and bushy Iguanura went along a fence in hopes of minimizing its presence somewhat. It was muddy work. :)

I have to add two photos here to further illustrate Kim's plantings. The second photo shows one of the recently planted A. macrocalyx to the left and a Carpoxylon to the right. The L. grandis still need to go in the ground. Notice the Clinostigma samoense right behind Kim. Second photo was taken on June 29, 2012. The exact same C. samoense can be seen in the first photo, taken on the day it was planted: May 8th, 2011. There's 13.5 months between the two photos. Amazing growth! :)

Yeah , i love the corrugated leaflets od Zamia Nesophila and will love them even more when they get huge!

I am running out of places to plant the really gigantic palms and this one is surrounded by a lot of Phoenix Sylvestris but I hope this corypha gets a growth spurt and sends out huge leaves soon so it can compete.

Kim's garden in Hawaii is really taking shape and it's no fair that she gets the expert help of BO! ; )

But seriously it's nice to see pictures of Kim in action and the before and fater pics of her palms. Impressive growth I must say. THe liberal use of fertilizer does wonders.

8 Dictyocaryum lamarckianum

The Dictyocaryum went all around this lava feature.

So Kim, these look like they are planted in full sun, is that correct ? I had the impression they needed a fair amount of shade.

Let me know, perhaps the high humidity is a factor with these lamarckianums.

Thanks

Why do all the Aussies hate Phoenixes? That was exactly what Miccles said when he visited : )

We planted a few more blue/grey leafed fan palms I will post pictures of those soon-- just to appease the Australians.

Wal, the Dictyocaryum will be in dappled shade morning and afternoon. Mid-day, they will get full sun, but as you note, the humidity and frequent cloud cover protect them well enough. Deep shade is completely unnecessary and would probably slow their growth considerably.

I apologize for the poor quality of some of the photos that were phone shots; I didn't realize they were so blurry!

They are SO SPIKY!!!! And takes up a lot of room too. And I thought African oil is bad... Besides, you DON'T have to plant phoenix because most palms grow for you and there are nicer stuff out there to plant, like Mauritia if you can find one!! Just a suggestion, if you are running out of room, you have to be selective... and I think I would rather more corypha than phoenix :) :)

My last chance to plant on our farm in Puerto Rico was last week until April 2013. So of course I stayed busy! I can sleep and eat in Virginia!

1. Areca vestiaria

2. Areca vestiaria

3. Areca vestiaria

21. Dypsis saintlucei (dwarf form)

22. Dypsis sp. ‘Dark Mealybug’

23. Heterospathe cagayanensis

24. Heterospathe woodfordiana

25. Hydriastele pinangoides ‘Highland’

26. Hydriastele pleurocarpa (Gronophyllum)

46. Wettinia panamensis

Of course this list doesn't include the non-palms we planted so the total was at least 100 in less than a week. Good thing the soil is easy to work, most plants were small and my husband made some new paths with his machete. These were not paths intended to get from point A to point B. In fact the newest area I've called the switchback which was formerly just the side of a hill.

I do have photos of all of these with the voice memo option on my camera to help keep the names and locations straight. Good thing there's a Home Depot 30 minutes away (they pronounce the "t"in Depot which takes some getting used to) for all those PVC pipes I use to hold plant labels.... I won't hijack this thread with all those baby pictures though. Please keep showing your new additions!

Ari- nah. Phoenix also have their charm. It will be a good contrast of textures to have several Phoenix Sylvestris and one gigantic Corpypha beside them. Visually i think this will be interesting - particularly because this grouping all have blue/grey leaves.

but just to keep you happy:

I planted a few Copernicias around the established Bismarkias

post-1017-0-29369300-1342052273_thumb.jp

post-1017-0-99787500-1342052285_thumb.jp

Copernicia Hospita-- very silver but veru slow growing so eventually this group will have varying heights as well.

post-1017-0-42696200-1342052300_thumb.jp

And a couple of Copernicia albas. These are faster growing so I think they will lean out away from the bismarkia

post-1017-0-99504600-1342052338_thumb.jp

Also planted around the the other bismarkia nearby

post-1017-0-89563500-1342052320_thumb.jp

This one is Serenoa repens-- the silver variety. THis one crawls.

I do like Copernicias yet I only have one. Hmmmm. Great additions to your already stunning collection!

Okay, here are the new Calyptrocalyx spp. I just planted. I took 1 photo with my hand to remind me of the size at planting and another without for each one. My hope is to eventually have each palm larger than my hand at least !!

I also have a very small plant of that blue-gray leaf Corypha (seed came from Kris in Chennai) that I must find a permanent place to plant it in ground. What is the species name of it?

I haven't done a lot of palm planting recently like many of you who have posted here but I did plant a Dypsis marojejyi, commonly referred to as the Mad Fox (Madagascar Foxtail). Here's a pic of it.

Al - I think its Corypha macropoda. Your mad fox is looking great. I also have one that is too small to plant and I have to figure out a good place to put it. The madfox is one palm you want to show off so I don't want it in a crowded spot.

Nice planting everyone!. Boy Cindy you don't mess around getting those little guys in the ground.

Gene, you're going to love that Calyptrogyne especially if it keeps those entire leaves.

Wal, looks like you've been smitten with the Chamaedorea bug, you must have a pretty good source.

Not a palm but something I planted close to a palm and i hope will eventually climb up the trunk of the palm.

Not sure what species of philodendron this is but the leaves are exceptionally narrow and crinkled copared to other of the same species that I have seen being sold over here.
