It's in a beautiful forest to the east of Kon Tum growing with Pinanga kontumensis and declinata.

Even a nice flowering begonia growing as a groundcover

Now to find a sports bar in Danang to hopefully watch a bit of Ashes cricket

Tomorrow I hope to track down Nenga banaensis

      This is a palm I have been looking for on a few trips to Vietnam.
      Unfortunately it was a wet morning and I had to climb a slippery slope of clay and loose gravel to get to the forest.

      Once I was up in the forest on the slippery trail there it was.

      Hello, I'm planning a trip to Chile this November and am interested in seeing Juania australis and/or Jubaea chilensis in habitat. On Juania I haven't been able to find out if the remaining wild specimens are still visible by regular visitors to Robinson Crusoe, and if so, exactly where (though there don't seem to be many hiking options to begin with). For Jubaea, it seems Parque Nacional La Campana is the best spot, at least as far as large protected areas, but I wanted to make sure that there aren't any better but more obscure/still accessible locations.

      I was in Brownsville this past weekend and stopped by the Sabal Palm Sanctuary to see some nice old Sabal mexicanas.  The Sabal Palm Sanctuary is a 557-acre nature reserve and bird sanctuary.
