Toilet Paper Palm Tree

Recommended Posts

DoomsDave

Okay 

A friend came to visit and they noted the spines on the Acrocomia and others.

A kid said, “Look Daddy a toilet Paper Palm tree.” 

Great comedian!

Mine actually came from you Dave. It was a little one gallon. She’s a vicious thing. She’s bit me more than once. Flowering this year but no seeds.

Hey Jim,

In your 5th picture, did I see a rather large Carpoxolon macrosperum that you have been holding back on us!

It's a little hard to figure out where to plant dangerous palms, isn't it? We want to admire their weapons but not be impaled by them.  Of course I use hills but then climbing to photograph some becomes a challenge. 

Here's Aiphanes horrida AKA the burglar palm.DSCN1278.thumb.jpg.2872d19ba2bf0b90f8a4969c17fa85fb.jpgDSCN1279.thumb.jpg.9be5b581895ddfc637ffc7a6ce1360a0.jpg

With my only remaining Phoenicophorium borsigianum I think that's all my seriously spiky ones.

Yike a rooney, you've got some formidable TP there . . . .

And the tongue-twister of the day . . .

"She sells sea shells, by the sea-shore in the Seychelles."

Say it six times fast, extra gold star if you can do it after some Vino . . . .

I can see you’re taking good care of my hard to love baby!

I got 2 from you at the 2012 banquet. One for me and one for my father in law rocky. Unfortunately acrocomia doesn’t grow spines on its root as rockys got munched by gophers. Everytime he comes to my house he looks at mine and says “ I’m not sure if I’m sad or happy mine died”. Personally it’s one of my favorite palms.

Oh yeah, now I remember.

Hope Rocky still rocks . . .

I don't have any more to sell or give at this time, though my specimen is loaded with seeds now.

So glad to hear yours is doing so well. They're not always the easiest thing to grow and keep happy.

Hey Jim,

In your 5th picture, did I see a rather large Carpoxolon macrosperum that you have been holding back on us!

If you mean the one with the flared and ringed trunk, it’s just a Euterpe edulis. A fairly robust one at that. I wish I had a nice sunny hotspot to try a Carpoxylon though. I still doubt it would be terribly happy though.

It certainly looks like a Carpoxolon macrosperum!
