It's a beautiful Palm. It's bigger than it looks in the photo. I will do my best to keep it alive.

Thanks Troy

I just planted all 3 and the distances are 90 cm from each other...

I don't have the best soil and drainage but I tried hard to amend the soil with compost and gypsum ...

Another thing is I thing the palms might get 1-2 hour sun during the day and then shade...I hope they can cope with that as I didn't install any shade cloth ?

Really nice! I think most of the palms on your list should be fine on Sydney. I'd make sure to protect Latania loddigesii, Carpoxylon macrospermum, and Hyophorbe lagenicaulis, though.

Having small available space to plant palms made me search for every possible corner ...

I just planted my small Laccospadix australasica beside our walk way to home ...

I amend the local soil with compost as much s I could ...

I hope it has the reddish new leaves ...

Looks like it's growing very well. Looking very healthy. The trouble with them when they eventually get big, there fronds are so heavy when they drop they can damage plants planted underneath.

Really , if they can survive there they should grow here, I thought they are tropical?

Hi Mohsen

2 Marojejya insignis are growing well in Wollongong Botanic gardens,  one was an original planting 3 years ago, put another in the ground  18 months ago because the first one grew so well

Hi MohSen, 

The Hyophorbe lagenicaulis will grow if you put it up against a protected Noth facing wall in full sun, preferably near water. They are growing in the RSBG and mine is seeding this year, took 22 years though. 100 k's south of Sydney on the coast

Regards

Colin

Hi Steve

Mine are fine so far ( unless my Howea forsteriana in pot and my  Howea belmoreana in ground which already been burnt :( )

I kept watering 2-3 times all my palms especially my  Dypsis carlsmithii and  Dypsis lepto in bags... so far so good :)

Hi Mohsen. 

I planted one about 2 months ago. It's in filtered light and is happy so far. I will see how it goes through winter. It was outside last winter in my shade house and did get a few marks on the leaves. I hadn't noticed any colour in new fronds so far.

IMG_5030.JPG

IMG_5031.JPG

Update on my Ravenea rivularis : 8-3-2017

it has several new fronds and now is 2 m tall...the new fronds are longer and more vertical...I am very curious to see if it will see trunking stage as it is not in real ground but on rock filled with soil...what do you think about the fate of this Ravenea rivularis ?

I think that it will grow well until the roots fill the rock space then it will slow right down and eventually blow over in a storm.

Unless it can find some good cracks in the rock. :-(

or if you are lucky you may end up with a nice bonsai. :-)

My guess is your right

the only fact I think might bring some hope is that I cut down big stablished thick trees there before ( don't know their name ) maybe if they could get that big this majestic palm can do too?
