I have 2 thornless floss silks, really wanted the one with the thorns but were the only ones i found back then and it was at a steal of a price so i took the only 2 they had. I also heard that the thorny ones lose most thorns as they age, not sure on the accuracy of that.

Cool! What a coincidence...

I was wondering around a local nursery the other day and found these green trees with gnarly thorns. I thought it was so cool. This is what the trunk looked like except smaller

They get big and fat like a Jubea, something to contemplate when selecting an area to plant.

I've seen them around here in many places. There's one in my neighborhood. There's these really old ones in a golf course and they are pretty big, but I haven't seen one with a huge bulging trunk yet. I wonder if that has to do with the climate around here. 

Also I was thinking that I can keep it under control by trimming the tree and never letting the canopy get to huge. If that doesn't work it can always be replaced by something in the future. 

I really like this tree. Its different. Its green. Cool thorns. And puts on a show of pink flowers. I gotta get some pics of the ones around here before the flowers fall off.

It is definitely Malvaceae (Bombacaceae) but I don't think it is a Ceiba.  Where is this tree?  I might have to break out my Barwick book.

Maybe Ceiba pentranda?  We have a tree we grew from seed that supposedly came from a C. pentranda.  From what I've read the trunks are "usually" spiny, but ours isn't.  It has about 8 ft. of trunk, the flowers are a creamy white & inconspicuous as in jardinier's photo.  The flowers are certainly nothing as showy as in other Ceiba species with their pinks and reds.

The pods of the C. pentranda in Foster Garden in Honolulu are like the ones in the first photos, but have never been in Honolulu when the tree blooms, so haven't seen its flowers.  The ground in the garden is covered with the white "kapok" when the pods burst open on the tree.  Quite the sight.  The trunk is enormous (no spines) with great buttresses.  Sorry no pics!

Aloha,  Karen

Those flowers 100% are Kapok, Ceiba pentandra.  They come in various shades of orange-ish to pink also, but white is the most common.

I agree that the flowers look exactly like Kapok, but the trunk looks nothing like it.  Perhaps it experienced repeated damage to force it out of its usual straight single trunk.

Here's a few pics of the one I was talking about. The one with the cool thorns!

Here's another one I saw at Lowes. If I decide to plant this tree in my yard I will try and keep it smaller like this one.

I've seen lots of them on Google search. This one was one of my favorites. I really like the fact that I can thin out the canopy to my liking or needs.

      Does anyone know what variety of avacado tree this appears to be? I grew it from seed and I know the actual tree doesn't end up being the variety of avacado it cane from. Does it even have a specific variety, or is it kind of like a "wild" avocado since it isn't grafted?

      On PT I see all the stunning photos and descriptions of past and future travel with the International Palm Society. 
      Here’s the group of us on the unforgettable Sarawak, Borneo pre tour in 2016.

      I recall times I almost did not sign up due to time, family and work constraints and costs involved.
      However every time it is only the trips I missed that I regret.
      And the friendships I have made across the world are at least as important as the sights and experiences.
      I took my first IPS trip using hoarded airline points through a country I had to find on a map (Qatar) to a place of my dreams (Thailand) in 2012, based primarily on comments by Palm Talk users I had never met.
      I am asking all of you now who have traveled anywhere on an IPS sponsored trip to post why you loved your trip(s). 
      Photos always welcome, but not required.

      What is this plant? I am sure it is an easy one but I have never seen it before, it's planted at a pool. I like the looks of it.

      So I completely forgot about my Bald Cypress seeds left in the fridge from last fall. Just one week and two days ago I put all of the seeds (that were in the fridge) in a big community pot and did not think anything would happen. Then I left to visit family for a week. I came back and four sprouted. I heard these can sometimes take months to sprout and they have bad germination rates (which is true, I had over 50 seeds and only four came up, so far). I thought this was pretty cool.

      I have a couple of these Cussonia spicata growing since I liked the coarse texture of the bark for epiphyte mounting.  The one pictured has been in less than a full year now, but has really taken off (photos are 4 months apart).  The growth habit is the same as on the other one I have which is straight up with no branching.  I'm wondering at what point do they start branching?  Anyone have any experience with this species?
