By BS Man about Palms
After enjoying some recent pics of the stunning size and color of these palms, it brings to mind an observation I had years back. I only recently thought about it again and I realized this Dypsis seems to have a different growing characteristic to any other Dypsis. It seems to grow like a hybrid of a heeled palm and a non-heeled palm. It seems to grow most similarly to a Sabal of all things... at least to my eyes.
What I mean by this is it seems to grow sideway like a heeled palm, yet it never seems to go below the surface like a standard palm. If fact the base just continues to get fatter, splitting the older leaf bases with wild abandon, kinda like most Sabals I see until they trunk.

No tags on this Dypsis I saw at the San Diego Zoo. Anyone have any illuminating ideas on ID? Alliteration always has an alluring appeal!
Howdy, and happy new year.
Seems like I rot my Dypsis seeds, thoughts on how to germinate?
Thanks a heap for suggestions!
I was walking around the garden this morning and noticed my Dypsis ambositrae was flowering. Looks like its not going to set seed but hopefully next time it will. I'm not aware of any others flowering in CA but I'm sure someone's has.
