Kim summed this up very well.  My wife and I own our own business and our work is computer based so we can live anywhere in the world as long as we have internet.  So the Big Island was a great choice for us and we haven't regretted the decision once.  I have seen plenty of shortages here though now that I've been here awhile and it's made me see opportunities.   Not any that I have the training for, but if anyone is a vet or a dentist, there's a huge need!  It takes months to get an appointment for either, and that's only if they are accepting new patients.  Or if you want to learn how to spray for fire ants, there's always a need for that!  

Interesting. I’m a dentist....

From what I’ve heard it’s difficult for out of state dentists to get licensed in Hawaii.

Hmmm, that would be too bad if it’s the case but then again wouldn’t surprise me.

So beautiful and lush Jason... fantastic work!

I am a bit jealous of your Orania.. I think if I can get a big enough one they will make it here.. I had a big one some time back that I planted out not too long before one of our coldest winters... I thought it died during the winter. Late that summer it was coming back and pushing a spear. It started to partially open... then a gopher ate it.. :rant: Taught me to cage everything..

Thanks Bill!

jeff and suchin have some Orania for sale in 4” or 1 gallons but they are nice and healthy. I have one of those I was growing for that spot in my yard and then I found this big 15 gallon. Maybe order one from Jeff, pot it up and protect it for awhile.

Oops, I forgot to mention I picked up a couple of the longisquamas and trispathas from them a week ago. :D  Thanks, Great minds think alike!

Planted a few more palms today.

3 gallon Cyphosperma Balansae

Clinostigma Gronophyllum - I’m very excited about this one.  An incredible stilt-root Clinostigma that I’ve only seen one of at Floribunda.

And last planting for the day was another Cyphosperma Balansae. This one was a big 1 gallon plant that I put in the New Cal area of my yard.

I’ve got company for the next week but I’ll get back to planting and posting after that.

Definitely need to squeeze one in.  Seems like they don’t get too big so I’m sure you can find a spot!

A few new palms made it into the garden yesterday evening. 

Pinanga Declinata:

Another view of Pinanga Declinata to show what’s around it:

and this Verschafeltii was walking out of its 4” pot so I wanted to get it in the ground:

although I don’t like armed palms in my garden, I made an exception for this one as I’ve had the opportunity to visit the Seychelles and really wanted a Seychelles palm in the yard and they are all armed with the exception of Lodoicea Maldivian and I won’t be able to get one of those!

Thanks for looking. Hope everyone is having a good Spring and spending time outside!

more plantings soon....

Exactly what I did when I found that plant at Floribunda on my last trip!  Not many photos online, although Palmpedia has some good habitat shots. Maybe I will start a thread for it and see if anyone else is growing it here on Palmtalk. From the description online it sounds like it might work for California as it’s a higher elevation plant and can take more cold.

@Hilo Jason It'd be great to get more info. Unfortunately it looks like plants and seed are still pretty rare. Can't wait to see how it does for you!

I'll start a thread with pictures of the one I just planted and maybe we'll see some more that way, and get some more info.  Hopefully this grows quickly for me and I can be part of the process of getting more seed out there for this palm.  I have other Pinangas growing very quickly here, so I hope this does the same.

Planted a couple more palms today that were well rooted in their pots and ready to go in the ground. 

Dypsis Heteromorpha:

Will be interesting to watch how fast these are over there in Hawaii.  Your Dypsis heteromorpha in Fallbrook got me looking for one here, and it has been among the faster clumping Dypsis for me, and by far one of the best looking in my climate.  It will also be interesting to see how thick the trunks get.  I remember Matty has a couple of forms, one with skinnier trunks and another with chunky trunky.  He is due for an updated post on his two different types.

Hey Tracy,

In my opinion, the Heteromorpha in California look better than what I’ve seen here. They seem to be more colorful there compared to here in Hawaii. That’s why this is a late planting for me as I finally gave in and found a place for this in the garden. Not like California where it was in a prime spot there for me. 

In Fallbrook this was by far my best growing clumping dypsis.  We’ll see how this one does here.

A few more plantings to update here. The garden is filling up, but I’m always finding places to plant new palms.

Both of these palms below were bought as small 4” plants and were now rooted into 2 gallon pots. 

Satakentia liukiuensis:

Dypsis Marojejyi (mad fox):

the marojejyi was never 100% happy in its pot, so I’m hoping it performs better in the ground.

And just got these today and enjoyed planting them while it was raining lightly:

3 - Dypsis Mirabilis (entire leaf form)

wider angle of the planter they are in with the row of Pinanga Coronata behind them.  Masoala Madagascariensis on the left and Dypsis sp Ambanja on the right.

I’ve been busy planting again, here are a couple updates.

Marojejya Insignis:

planted near my Marojejya Darianii:

In California I grew a lot of Dypsis Ambositrae in my garden and 3 of them that I had there had much stiffer leaflets, more color and were fast growing. Leaflet thickness was comparable to Decipiens, not Ambositrae. Not sure what they were. Hybrids or just a variation. 

I found 2 of them here in 15 gallon pots. Most likely from the same seed batch that came in years ago that my California palms came from. 

46507ED8-52E3-4FE3-9B1D-AFD3D2785701.thumb.jpeg.9b64dbaeb378e622ce8aab6b9e8d5463.jpeg

in the ground:

and this is a double:

planted:

another angle with it on the left.  Dypsis Ampasindavae is on the right and that’s Dypsis Bejoufa in the middle - the slowest Dypsis in my garden!

The stiff leaf Ambositrae?  If so, that’s great to hear.  Such a nice palm!
