Thanks for the pictures. This is without doubt one of the worlds greatest trees!

One thing that always strikes me with pictures of this species, pictures of them in parks as younger specimens makes them appear huge imposing trees, while the landscape shots makes them appear small and skinny due to perspective. Standing under one of those super-tall beauties out in the field must be an awesome experience!

In the site where these palms occur on these hillsides, is the climate the same as Bogota, or different?

Those habitat pictures are spectacular - they made me order some seeds a while ago.

Unfortunately we lack cooler temps at night from April up to December - so, they are not really doing well over here. 

However, thank you very much for posting - a beautiful species!

Best regards -

Lars

Very telling of the early requirements. I can easily imagine the moisture levels and humidity from this shot.

I can also see why this palm is worth trying in the UK. The problem I hear constantly from UK growers is 'red spider mite', which is why I'll keep my seedlings protected until the the cooler, damp weather returns. (Shouldn't be too long!)

Nice Mauricio. I hope Dr. Bernal and his team raise the $10,000,000 USD to buy and convert the valley into a protected area. Stunning place!

      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.

      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.
