Beautiful pictures Meg. Everything looks the picture of health, nice & green! I didn’t know that there was such an Adonidia cross. Very cool. Do you have the impression it’s any more cold resistant than straight Adonidia?

Much like Japan, you use the limited space very efficiently.

I've had it in the ground only 6 months so this will be its first winter. It's doubled in size since then so is very fast growing.

Can I ask where did you source this hybrid?

For two winters. I planted it when it grew too tall for my birdcage. It's under deep canopy to protect it from direct sun and cold. Last winter we got down to 34F and it did fine. Its leaves are thick & leathery too. Tough palm for a Heterospathe and I recommend it.

Good eye. They are. I plan to give them their fall tune-up and post photos soon.

No, the mother was planted in my yard in 2010.

Are you serious or am I blind? I see the same coconut tree in both pictures. 

Are you joking of what?? if you're not, then someone out there is copying you...

Wait...I see what you mean, the bird on your landscape is facing right and the one in the image I attached is facing left. Gotcha!! yeah, it's not the same palm.

That is the same palm. The photos were taken in different years and the bird moved. The palm in the Craig's List ad you posted is in Homestead, which is located down in SE FL. My dwarf red spicata was planted in my yard in Cape Coral, which is west of Ft. Myers in SWFL 150 miles away. The Homestead palm is also advertised as a "red Malayan" & "dwarf Malayan."

Yes! They took your picture and are not advertising it as a a red Malayan.

Meg,

It looks like the seller in Homestead is selling container (Red Malayan?) coconuts and using your tree as an example of a mature specimen.  Maybe they took the photo themselves of your tree or more likely they "borrowed" one of your photos from the internet.  What they are selling may or may not be this type of coconut palm.

You are correct - I studied the photo more closely. He cut out parts or my photo, i.e., landscaping, car, that might help ID it. God only knows what garbage coconuts he's selling for what he charges - certainly not red Malayan or red spicata. This isn't the first guy that has stolen my photos to peddle his wares. I've had my 2008 photo I took of a wild Sabal Lisa used to hawk seeds. Same with my mother Sabal minor Blountstown dwarf. I always take my own photos, never "borrow" someone else's.

Thank you for sharing!

Wow, Meg, well done! Everything looks super healthy! I admire that you are planting from seed. (I lack the patience and vigilance.)  One would never guess a hurricane went through there not so long ago.

      This afternoon I took photos of my largest garden area, which I call, no kidding, "Garden Lot". We bought this 125' x 125' 3-lot site in 2011 before Cape Coral began to emerge from the Housing Bust, during which the Cape had the 2nd most foreclosed real estate market in the US. Houses remained vacant for years, residents fled the state and no one would spring for vacant land at any price. We bought this barren patch of weeds and fire ants with the intention of creating a garden that would block the view of the newly built LCEC electrical substation, also known as "Osama bin Laden's FL Vacation Compound" for its sandy pink stuccoed concrete block walls. The erector set is installed but to this day the substation remains unfinished and inoperable. Par for the course in Cape Coral.
      The first palms we planted were 5 Bizzies in 3-5g pots. We later added another Bizzie as point because it was so purple. Now it is silver and huge. Juxtaposed with and behind the Bizzies we planted Livistonas. We wanted all decoras but ended up with 2 decora, 2 australis and 1 mariae courtesy of a nursery with suspect expertise that shall remain unnamed. Fast forward 9 years and what you will see in the following photos is what you get.
      Vacant End Lot: Sabal sp and flowering bottlebrush & Cocos trunk, bananas, bottlebrush

      Garden Lot Views: south side

      Leaning Coconut of Irma

      Livistona mariae

      Sabal palmetto of unknown age. Lot mowers had hacked it to the ground 6x per year for possibly decades. It just barely fits inside our property line so we decided to give it a chance to grow. This is what we have after 9 years.
