IPS has posted it's pre & post tours. Unfortunately, the do not go to areas where you can see the Spiny Forest, Succulents, Baobabs. Of course, it is the palm society so they are focused on palms.
Is there anyone out there that would like to join us on Madagascar tour that would take us to see the iconic plants that I listed above ? A tour company will customize. and provide a quote So let me know if you are interested, and preference for either before or after the biennial in Reunion.

I understand the 2020 IPS Biennial will be held in Reunion Island. Do we have firm dates yet? When will the travel details be available?
Hello from Cali, Colombia. It is the evening of the Farewell Dinner, but I will take a few minutes to post some pics from the adventure. Bo (bgl) and I spent a few days in Bogotá in advance of the Biennial. We visited the Jardín Botanico de Bogotá and also went up the teleférico to the top of Montserrate to take in views of the city. The elevation of the city is 8,675 ft. (2,644 m.) and the top of the hill is 10,341 ft. (3,152 m.), a good way to acclimate for hiking at lower levels to see Ceroxylon.
Old Man Palm from Jeff Searle in Flo-Rida. 12 years in the ground from a 1 gallon size. Slow and steady wins the race. Who has one in California??

I just wanted to give a shout out to Jeff Searle. We lost a lot of our palms last year due to Hurricane Irma. Last week Jeff spent half of his day with us helping us pick out lots of beautiful palms to go back in our garden. I will post some pictures when this wind stops and we can get them in the ground.
Thanks again Jeff.
