This one went in the ground earlier this year from a 15 gal pot after I got the stump ground from an ugly African Oil Palm (see thread on Least Favorite Palms); hard to get good pics with sun and other palms in the way.

I visited Floribunda Nursery yesterday and took some pics. I thought of this topic when we passed these palms. Here is D. carlsmithii. with MattyB for scale.

I guess they all don't get to be monsters. Mine is doing fine, just doesn't have the caliper...

It can't need more water--gets a ton of it, and it's super healthy--not a bad leaf.

Crazy how big this flower is, in comparison to the trunk height. Been feeding it bloom food, so that might be part of it. This 

has the possibility to produce a huge amount of seed.

@Josh-O what’s the update on this palm? Do you have one at your vista garden? 
 

Just doing my nightly palmtalk research and thinking I need a Carlsmithii now…

Haha haven’t made purchase yet. And just like you, I’m way past the asking for permission phase. Buy it, sneak it in next to the other potted plants, she never knows the difference.

That would be wrong and I’d never do that! :D

That’s exactly where I’m at.  Wife: “Did you buy more palms?” Me: “No, I just moved them around.”

I have 4 little D. carlsmithii’s in pots. I want to plant them but these ones are a little difficult for me. D. prestoniana is an easier big Dypsis grow, but I love the carlsmithii’s so eventually I will try one in the ground.

Planted my "baby" from 1 gallon pot back in March.  No change yet.  LOL

Second Carlsmithii bump. Here’s the new purchase. I’d like to see some updated California garden photos… if they are out there…

      If patience is a virtue, then I feel I've finally won some sort of a prize!
      These two D. carlsmithii were planted out from small cones back in late 2008 and honestly, I'm surprised they even survived. They have chugged along steadily, getting fatter, taller, more colorful, and finally started trunking. Actually, slow to trunk is a good thing, as it adds more time to enjoy what will become a fairly large palm. Being at eye level for such a long time gives plenty of time to admire such a special palm.....surely that's the real prize.

      Just got my Dypsis carlsmithii  in 45 Liter bag, thanks to Ben ( Palms for Brisbane)  ( with 27 other palms   )
      , I want to plant it in ground and will dig in yard for it...it will be in full sun...any suggestion or consideration I should know about ?
      I have read that  ( I think Dypsis Decipiens) should not be plant in ground  deep? I'm not sure why , is that because of its heel root type?how about Dypsis carlsmithii ? should I create mound ?
      Thanks in advance, this is the picture of the Dypsis carlsmithii  and where I want to plant it ...
