Looks amazing Tracy. I need to come by for a visit the next time I’m in California. I’d love to see it in person.

Looking good Tracy. When one fills up that final spot in the yard it’s time to buy another house with another yard to create your work of art. Because we all know it is impossible to stop buying palms and other tropicals. It’s our addiction.

I can relate to this as I’m closing escrow this week on another property here on the Big Island!  Palm addiction really messes with the mind (in a good way!)

I can't quite get this view anymore since this deck was replaced with more house... but if you look below, you can see a similar view looking out now toward the driveway and toward the small planter I have between a covered patio and the garage now.  Until that Pritchardia goes up more you can't even really see the driveway anymore.

Jason congrats on the new additional property on the big island!  One rental is enough for now for me.  I've helped one of my son's gardens with a Dypsis lanceolata and a Rhopolostylis sapida he and his wife picked out.  They are in a townhome for now so didn't have a lot of space for much more.  Perhaps if they get something with more yard eventually, I'll be able to donate some additional plantings though!

      Does anyone know what the overall growth rate of W filibusta is and how it compares to Filifera and robusta?

      I planted this palm about 2 years ago. It immeadiatly lost 80% of its fronds. It has been unchanged ever since- not a single new frond. I recently stuck a camera in there and it looks like the new growth is stuck somehow. Should I try to dig it out? Any advice on getting this to grow new fronds again? Thanks.

      I was looking at the new flushes on my Encephalartos arenarius x woodii as they near there full size and realizing how much this cycad has grown since I planted it.  I searched for photos of when I got the plant as a 15 gallon and found the one below pictured still in the pot.  The photo was February 2011 and I planted it within weeks of the photo being taken.  7 years later one of the pups would dwarf the caudex of the original 15 gallon plant.  The third pup is now flushing 5 leaves, while the larger pup has pushed somewhere in the high teens of new leaves.  I'm optimistic that I'll actually live to see this be a large cycad at this rate.  Chalk one up for hybrid vigor !

      Hello everyone,
      I was curious to know what all your fastest growing palms are and what conditions they are growing under.
      Most of my palms are still seedlings but my fastest are Washingtonia and to my surprise, Chambeyronia macrocarpa. Currently they all grow either on windowsills or in my grow room where temperatures rarely drop below 15 celcius (59F) and on sunny days it may hit 20-22c (68-72F) in summer it will be much warmer - up to 30C/86F (indoors) My grow room has lighting most of the day and the windowsill plants just receive natural light.

      Does anyone have before and after pics of their Washingtonia growing? It is interesting to see their growth after years.
