My drone video of Espletia species on the Paramo de Oceta, Colombia. Yes I know that Espeletia are not technically palms but they are interesting plants with a somewhat similar look to them.

Here is a link to a BBC news article about the palms many of us saw at the last IPS Biennial in Colombia.

Beautiful palm , in the Botanico Garden of Bogota , know as black palm.
Hello from Cali, Colombia. It is the evening of the Farewell Dinner, but I will take a few minutes to post some pics from the adventure. Bo (bgl) and I spent a few days in Bogotá in advance of the Biennial. We visited the Jardín Botanico de Bogotá and also went up the teleférico to the top of Montserrate to take in views of the city. The elevation of the city is 8,675 ft. (2,644 m.) and the top of the hill is 10,341 ft. (3,152 m.), a good way to acclimate for hiking at lower levels to see Ceroxylon.
