Looking fantastic this year, aloes look great!  I like the dry look you’ve got going on, more time for relaxing. You’re going to love the new bromeliad when it blooms.

Hello,

Thank you much :)  yes i planned to order online new palms that i'm going to plants in springtime: dyspis decipiens, sabal yapa, parajubaea sunkha.

But the thing it's my 9a 8c USDA zone, i have a limitted choice on what can i grown, but as spring comes i'm going to try to plant an achontophoenix illawara, i love this palm so much and i'd like to have one in my garden  :) 

 

have a nice day

Thank you much, i'm happy you like it ;)  no i didn't try yet, but the aloe i got here are very fast to grow, so if the striatula is faster its so cool :) i'm gonna check if i can find some on them and try them :) thanks for your tips :)
