A wooden stick was also placed along with this plant ,so that all its branches could be fastened together due to travel some are drooping at the moment.Hope they stiffen up in couple of months.The pits were refilled with washed river sand.

In the empty pots we filled it with thread like plants,once it fills up it will become clearer what variety it is..

Well done Kris,

You are doing a wonderful thing for your local park.

The plants will be there for generations to come to enjoy and  to ensure the plants survival.

Great work Kris...

Let us hope others follow your example and never give up on asking authorities until permission is given to provide plants.

Regards

Colin

I have delivered 2 more plants from my collection today,thought it would add the much needed variety to this park..Since this plant was wide it could not be accommodated in my car.So had to hire a 3 wheeler.And here are the visuals.And if you know the name of these plants kindly chime in.It would help us during the time of tagging these plants in the coming years.

This is the place where all of us have agreed to plant it :

Once planting work of the above plants takes place,you will have visuals of that.

Btw Do these plants need full sunlight or semi shade to grow well.Since they were in semi shade area of our house.And has not grown much.

Love,

Kris.

Hi Kris,

The green and yellow plant is a schefflera arboricola variegata.

The other plant likes Tuya occidentalis.

This plant loves full sun,but can grow in semi- shade.

And the same with Scheflera arboricola, can grow in shade but looks better in full sun.

Dear Angel and Antonio,

Thanks for the ID.It was indeed helpful in deciding its planting location.

Lets see today's activity :  Tuya occidentalis Planting work.

      I came across this nice sized Corypha utan on Saturday. It is growing in Rockledge (just south of Cocoa) in a yard facing the western shore of the Indian River lagoon. It has some cold damage but I think more of the damage maybe from wind/salt spray from Hurricane Irma. There are Adonidia/Cocos/Hyophorbe/Veitchia nearby with minimal damage. A Livistona decora is to the right for scale.

      I hope @Hillizard doesn't mind me borrowing this photo of his for this post  He was at the Osher Rainforest exhibit in San Francisco when he took this photo. He was not able to get an i.d. at the exhibit. The photos were posted in @Jdiaz31089's palms of San Fran thread where I asked the palm's i.d. but there were no answers. Does anyone here know?
      Is it a Mauritia species? Is it Sabal mauritiiformis? It's certainly not a Corypha, right?

      In our intercontinental PRA last week ( see Ohana Nui subforum) in Peradeniya botanic gardens I noticed thanks to Ahamed this palm and wonder which species it can be? Corypha utan?
      Strangely I don't remember having seen this tree in the previous visits!

      I haven't been able to find much on growing the more massive fan palms (mostly Borassus and Corypha) in Mediterranean climates.  Many know of the Corypha in Bird Rock, San Diego, but does anyone know of other attempts.  There's a big Borassus at the Zoo, and it's thriving.  Here's some updated pics.  I germinated a few C. utan in the Spring, and they are already pushing their fourth leaf.  Faster than all of my other seedlings.  Soon, I'll probably plant one.

      Dear Friends,
      I welcome you all to another palm planting work,And this time its my favorite palm "Corypha Macropoda Palm". Like always we dug up the soil about 3feet
      x 3feet by 3feet depth since our garden soil is just clayey. All our palms had grown well in washed river sand.So this time we just filled the pit only with coarse grade sandy soil,little bit of coarse grade perlite,And some neem composite since i have here termite and fire ants problem.visuals of that work can be seen in following post.And i call this operation as "Operation Sandy".Once the palm stabilizes in its new home,we will feed it with nutrients.
      And my special thanks to my ranch hand,without who's help this entire work would not have been possible.
      Thanks and Love,
      Kris.
