Hello Andrew,

Your rain forest looks good! c

Can you show us more pics?

What is the very little one in front on pic "front2" a Licuala seedling?

Is the strong palm middle of the first pic a B. condapanna? nice Licuala on this pic.

Pinanga coronata on "front2"?

It probably needs it's own thread, but for now I will debut it under this one. I planted this palm just before Mother's Day.

Steve knows his palms! Question: would you have known that answer, 2 years ago--before Palmtalk?

The little seedling is a Licuala orbicularis, so great guess. My Condapannas are at my father's place and in full sun. Spot on with the Pinanga coronata ID.

Nice work Andrew. Your garden has come a long way. Also nice use of a pot to point out that is not a weed. :)

The containers are there more so to keep feet from getting them. The ceramic one in this shot is protecting my sp. pre pak pak.

I think the strong plant in photo 1 is C. houailou, with a large L. Grandis to the left and what looks to be Calyptrocalyx albertsiana to the back ish right?? I have no idea on the smaller palm in the front centre though or which licuala sp. are present..... Maybe L. ramsayii on the left?

I would also guess the palm is post 14 has C.A as its initials.

Your gardens are looking V. nice!!

Kenny--did not see a guess you got wrong. The initials are correct and Steve is not letting me down either. I will get some more photos up soon, guys.

Not a very hard guessing game when the pics are labelled with a huge clue! Keep 'em coming though.

Great garden & pictures Andrew. So I have to ask: where did your A. rubra come from?

It came from a good friend, and he got it from Reunion(not sure they still send them, but they were defoliated and barerooted--poor survival rate).

Ellis Brown at Redlands has a nice crop of A. rubra and A. Crinita coming up. Maybe he got the seeds at a similar time?

Here is a photo of my two Chamaedorea tuerckheimii. The one in the foreground is the female and the one behind it is a male. They are nestled in between a deckeriana and a brachypoda. The neat little palm to the left of them is a Calyptrocalyx julianettii.

Mandrew,

How long has the P. phillipinensis been in the ground for you? Mine came out of hawaii looking super colorful like that, but have slowly lost their color. I can't figure out it if's light or temperature.

Gosh, I would have to say almost 2 years if not that long. I have a couple others in the nursery--I think they go through stages of color like a Satakentia crownshaft--sometimes you catch it with that great reddish purple, and other times it's just greenish brown.

Thanks! I've had mine for just about a year now, and it's probably only lost a single leaf. I'll keep an eye out once a leaf falls off.

It looks like yours is in very deep shade, which may play a factor too.

Shade, yes--most if not all Pinangas need it. It's not very deep though--you can read next to it :)

The sidewalk in my front yard makes for a nice rainforest path. In 2010, there was not a single palm in my yard.

Some things you might see in the rainforest: a Licuala sallehana with an adult southern ring necked snake guarding it.
