Planted these as a small 3 gallon. I know Kim asked me for some Satakentia pics...

Andrew,

Actually, how far from each other did you plant these Satakentia? cheek to cheek or one feet distant?

An update on Pinanga philippinensis. Loves water everyday. No problems to report... she came with a lot of color, then lost it, and now she is gaining it back.

This is a rare palm for South Florida. Not sure why you don't see more of these, other than people may not have the watering requirements, available to it... can't think I have seen another, locally...

Last shot for this update. I always love when a palm grows taller than me.

These look great! In fact many of yours are much bigger than mine and I actually live in a rain forest! 

Must take dedication and a lot of water!

I just thought this was a nice shot, taken from the road, looking into my artificial rainforest. The plants, animals and my boys think it's real...
