They look great next to your pond.  Probably will not be able to tell if they ever hybridize, since they look so similar.  Thanks for posting.

Totally misunderstood the title and opened it wondering why anyone would be angry at a palm! ;-)

Nice! Glad to see the B. mad flowering. There's one in St. Pete that shot out some spadices back in 2015 and they still haven't opened up.

They are thriving for you in Florida.

How long in the ground?

Love Beccariophoenix, have probably about 15 total in the ground, some of each. Just a super palm.

Great pictures; they have to love being in that close proximity to water. Especially nice to see the madagascariensis starting to seed!

I just got my first two, both B. alfredii, this past fall. Will put them in the ground this spring!

I have 5x ~6 foot OA Alfredii in the ground now, the only thing that would make me actually mad about Beccariophoenix is if they turn out to be really susceptible to lethal yellowing, fusarium or TPPD!!!  :o :o :o  Otherwise I'm pretty satisfied with my relative level of insanity.

I have only B. alfredii and it is certainly one of my favourite palms. Yours look fantastic!

Does the genus Beccariophoenix and then specially alfredii cope with a few months with temperatures between 0-15C/32-59F?
I really love these species but I need to keep it as a potplant and needs to go into the cold greenhouse during winter.

Here in the Tucson area we have had 9 days this winter where the low temperatures were 32˚ F or below. The daytime temperatures have been between 55˚ to 74˚ F. My 2 Beccariophoenix alfredii seem to have no damage and look as healthy as they did last summer.

Here in Melbourne we have 3-4 months where temperatures rarely get over 15C/59F. B alfredii seems to love it here and B madagascariensis does ok too but it very slow. I’ve heard reports that B fenestralis has also done well but also that they are prone to nutrient deficiency with extended periods of cool weather.

Too cool! Saw those in person years ago and I really loved the garden. Can't wait till my alfredii look like that.

Thanks for your responses. 
The coldest months here are December and January even in a greenhouse without heating because it can be very dark. Before that or after that, also in february for example when the sun is shining the greenhouse will warm up quite easiliy. Sounds like its worth a try.
