I have many palms. Most of them are very happy palms because I love them and we treat them well. In turn, they reward us with bountiful crops of seeds. I've learned there is scant interest in seeds of very tropical palms, esp. "common" ones that grow fast and get large no matter how beautiful they are. Today we got out the pole saw to stop these palms from burying us alive in seeds. We ended up with the pile of aborted infructescenses you see in the photos. Sad, I know, but necessary.
For anyone interested, that pile includes the following species as I can best remember:
It pains me to know that who ever buys these will probably throw them out when they die in the fall and winter...unless they somehow have space indoors??
Hey guys. For the past few months my Washingtonian adonidia have been growing quite happily. I'm just wondering if I should move them up to slightly larger pots now?

Just thought I'd share a couple of pics of my indoor gems, generally palms that either wouldn't survive or would look terrible outdoors in my climate...
Chambeyronia Macrocarpa... my favourite... survives in my garden too, but hates the dry winds... and a little Pinanga Kuhli, bottom right.
Adonidia Merrilli (not a chance outdoors), with the Chambeyronia on the right
Ptychosperma Bleeseri, Caryota Mitis, and Ptychosperma Elegans (at the back)
Hope you like them
I hope that with enough sun, that palm will grow well and be strong !
