 Today I went to Floribunda Palms to pick up my order.  A little sad that Jeff was sick so no palm tour from him he did drag himself out of bed and show up as I was loading my new palms in the truck.  I did get a quick walk-through with one of his workers to see the garden.  It’s been along time since I’ve been there never enough time on my vacations to do anything.  Well I took a few photos that I can share.

 Not available yet but hopefully they will start producing seed soon.  Only reason I know that is because I asked if there were any available.

 I was thinking of a number in the photos so people could identify the ones in it and make a list because I have no clue only two of them I can identify lol.

   And some of the photos there are so many palms each photo would probably need a list of which palms are in it.

 I do know I want them all :D

Great list you picked out.  Thanks for the pics.  Crazy to think of how many of my plants started out in Jeff's hands.

I recently bought some of those Euterpe 'orange crownshaft' too, couldn't resist the color. You will enjoy all those palms, great list!

      Morning walk into the jungle and, ouch, here is one of my Clinostigma samoense.  It was fine the day before, like its siblings in the background.  There was no wind, no heavy rain overnight.   The trees are about 12 years old.  I don't recall seeing insect damage or nutrient deficiency.  I have seen Alexander palms here in East Hawaii have a complete crown lean-over -- tho not a collapse like this -- which I think is nutrient-related.  Do any of you more experienced palm growers have idea what might have caused this?

      Looking for recommendations on palm rich botanical gardens or other palmy public spots on Oahu.  Staying on the north shore for a week this month and will have some free time to explore the island.  Thanks!

      I am looking for a Socratea exorrhiza. Preferably a plant but might be interested in seeds as well.
