Just got this in the ground today after lots of clearing work and much thought about the best location. This is my only one.
Please let me see others!

Yesterday I planted my one and only Cyphokentia cerifera in a prime viewing location between two Licuala mattanensis 'mapu'
I would love to hear and see more about this palm. Thanks!

Annual Rare & Exotic Plant Auction

Meeting Begins at 7:30pm, Auction Preview 7:00pm
With Fall, comes the event season of the S. Florida plant world. The highly anticipated auction of the Tropical Fern & Exotic Plant Society is scheduled for the evening of Monday, Oct. 28th. The auction has become one of the best, entertaining and fun events for bidding on rare and unusual plants. Ferns are a key focus of the evening, but literally any plant may show up for auction. I have often seen plants for auction representing species and plant families that I have never seen before. In addition to the plethora of wonderful plants that find their way to the auction tables, Palm species always seem to find their way into the auction by way of many sources. Follow the link above for more information on the auction and the society. It is always a fun night for the plant fanatics in S. Florida.
I have attended many of the auction meetings and the array of plant material never ceases to amaze myself and other attendees. Of what material may be for auction, I do not know. It really can be anything. Rare plants that first appeared decades ago and thus disappeared, may re-appear at this very event. I have heard that certain rare Crotons may be among the selection. If I do receive info that should be posted (certain plants and the like) then I will post it here. I haven't always been able to post photos from the event, but follow the links below to previous topics where I have. I did post a lot from last years' auction. There should be many familiar faces from the Forum and some incredible plants...

This is a palm I have been looking for on a few trips to Vietnam.
Unfortunately it was a wet morning and I had to climb a slippery slope of clay and loose gravel to get to the forest.
Once I was up in the forest on the slippery trail there it was.
Have had the pleasure of seeing this beautiful small palm in habitat over the last few days. Truly spectacular
Off to Kham Duc tomorrow
Love this country
