Hi! 

Just thought I'd share a couple of pics of my indoor gems, generally palms that either wouldn't survive or would look terrible outdoors in my climate...

Chambeyronia Macrocarpa... my favourite... survives in my garden too, but hates the dry winds... and a little Pinanga Kuhli, bottom right.

Adonidia Merrilli (not a chance outdoors), with the Chambeyronia on the right

Hope you like them ;)

Beautiful and well grown. Can any of them go outdoors in summer?

Thanks Meg! Well, some of them probably could, but I'd be worried about sunburn, and especially about the effect of the horrific dry winds we get on this coast sometimes... I think they're happier indoors with the fan and occasional misting ;)

I do put them out in the rain couple of times a year tho...

      I have many palms. Most of them are very happy palms because I love them and we treat them well. In turn, they reward us with bountiful crops of seeds. I've learned there is scant interest in seeds of very tropical palms, esp. "common" ones that grow fast and get large no matter how beautiful they are. Today we got out the pole saw to stop these palms from burying us alive in seeds. We ended up with the pile of aborted infructescenses you see in the photos. Sad, I know, but necessary.
      For anyone interested, that pile includes the following species as I can best remember:
      Adonidia merrillii
      Veitchia joannis
      Veitchia spiralis
      Veitchia winin
      Carpentaria acuminata
      Dypsis pembana
      Coccothrinax sp
      Archonotophoenix tuckeri
      Archonotophoenix maxima
      Ptychosperma elegans

      I've had a skinny, solitary Ptychosperma growing up in my back yard for a number of years. It is perhaps 7-8' tall with a trunk about 1-1/2" in diameter and is easy to miss except that earlier this year it flowered for the first time and produced a dazzling, reddish-purple infructescense. Now I want to know what species it is. Can anyone please tell me? It's a dandy little palm.
      Ptychosperma sp ????

      I love animals, but even at the zoo, plants will always catch my eye first

      It pains me to know that who ever buys these will probably throw them out when they die in the fall and winter...unless they somehow have space indoors??
