Doesn't seem like he's answering emails right now. Anybody know what's up? He usually answers within a week or two. I have a few emails unanswered for over a month.

I touched base with him for an order mid summer and he was prompts at replying. Perhaps he taking a few months off as I imagine this is probably a pretty slow time for palms. (although he is into other plant material as well). As always patients is key with Patric.

He's unprofessional and unreliable.  I tried to place a large order with him several years ago.  During 2 1/2 months of back and forth he was constantly changing the sizes,  numbers,  and prices on the palms that I had ordered.    When I finally thought he had finalized the order I asked for a total with shipping.  I never heard back from him!  I even sent him an e-mail asking about his health and why no reply.   Very unpleasant experience to put it politely!

Whoa guys...slow your roll.  Patric is a hobbiest that is nice enough to spread some of his incredible creations around, when he has the time to do so.  Let's first check the e-mail you are using, as he has changed it.  He always responds to me within 24 hours, and I see him regularly as he is using my yard to hybridize...but he is all over the place doing what he does, so please be patient and know he is not a professional seller or running a business.  He has a life outside of palms.  Moderate expectations accordingly.

Patric is one of the lions of our hobby, and many of my hybrids simply wouldn't exist without him.  There are yards full of palms that wouldn't be without him.  But you should know he's simply one of us and not trying to run a business.  Consider yourself lucky if you get some of his creations.

I agree w Ben 100%, i have nothing but admiration for his work. Patrick is not a store front,  he's not advertising or using this site to push sales. Simply, he's a hobbyist who sells some of his plants. If he chooses not to sell his plants, that is his decision to make.

Let me send you what I'm using to see if that's the problem.
