View from the shower

I love taking a shower on a beautiful morning. Probably go through to much water though.

Beautiful view!  I must admit that I was really reluctant to click on this topic...not knowing what part of the shower you were photographing.  :floor2:

It's great putting the flamethrowers where you can really enjoy them.

Outdoor shower, anyone? I love the idea.

This open concept is at a hotel on Lombok Island, Indonesia.

Absolutely!  I am keeping one of my larger flamethrowers and a couple of Dictyosperma Rubrum aside for when I finally finish the flower beds outside my computer room window.  I have a nice Beccariophoenix Alfredii in the center and am building my favorite plants and palms around it.  :)

Yes and I love to use it.  Here is the view looking at the shower.  The Dypsis robusta is starting to peak at me as you can see.  The view looking out isn't bad either, I'll have to get in with the camera soon to capture the view.

One of my favorite palms (although there are many of those) is in the 3rd pic above the brown door. Give it a guess.

Is it Dictyosperma album?

Not Album. Furfuraceum. And it is a winner.

I want a shower like yours. My shower just overlooks an opposing wall.

So the view looking out of this shower.  Although it's outside, I use it more than the indoor one because its so convenient when coming back from a surf or working in the yard and it has hot water!!!  So I did cheat and open the door so I didn't have part of the shower door blocking the lower part of the view outside.  Dypsis onilahensis hybrid is hiding a Dypsis crinita on the other side.  Since the onilahensis hybrid is faster growing, I'll eventually see the salmon colored new leaves of the crinita below the onilahensis.  My Dypsis prestoniana towers over the nice blue Encephalartos princeps, with some green Encephalartos down below to allow the blue one to jump out.

Kurt wins. This is a really awesome palm for FL. Smaller, tropical, easy to grow. Really need to see people plant more of these. Mine has only seeded once and I only got 1 to germinate.

That's a great view, Tracy, and it's only going to get better with time. Exactly what I need in Hawaii.

I was going to ask what palm species that is in the third pic! It really grabbed my attention!! :wub: Must find a grower and purchase a couple. I know nothing about Dictyosperma. Are they rare? May I ask where you found yours?

That Dypsis prestoniana is a sight! Do you think it's too wet in S. FL to grow it?

Really full garden

This is the view from my shower. The back of my house faces a steep hill which is now a real jungle.8E00F906-F037-4FB2-97CF-6B2F053FED8F.thumb.jpeg.cbf194cc153f984305299cef64ecfe26.jpeg

I honestly don't remember. I have 3 in my yard, one of 3 places I'm guessing, South FL palm sale, Jeff Marcus or Jeff Searle's. I hardly ever see them in FL.

You are correct. The original plant got too large and blocked the view so I cut it out. Up on the hill are some Foxtail and Dypsis onilahensis weeping form.

I found Jeff Searle's list for "Dypsis known to survive in S FL" and Prestoniana is on it.  There was also one growing fine at Leu Gardens in 2011, though I don't know if it's still doing well.  It seems like it's worth a shot, and it's a really nice palm!

Mine was grown in Florida before it was brought to So Cal and I planted it in 2014.  I'm not sure where in Florida it was grown, but they are faster there than here in So Cal.

I’ve got a few 1 gallon Dictyosperma furfuraceum. They aren’t real big at this point but they sure are stellar!

I see 'furfuraceum' is an old name. Mine came from Floribunda labeled that way, but the current name is Dictyosperma album v. conjugatum.

I know; picky, picky!

No, not picky at all! I thank you for posting this! I looked it up on Palmpedia yesterday and noticed that. It confused me!
