Great selection. Your yard should look like a tropical oasis.

Just a caution: Rhapidophyllum may be burned to a crisp in your desert sun. They are SE forest understory palms that grow in partial/full shade.

Nice collection, it's going to look great in a couple of years.  I would think some mulch around the base of the palms would be helpful in retaining moisture and keeping the weeds from competing for resources.  It looks hot there!

@James760   I see you have drippers set up on the palms.  How often do you have to water in your locale?   Nice collection BTW!

Thanks everyone for your comments!

@PalmatierMeg, The Needle is in late afternoon sun only ( which isn't great) the plan was to have the Brahea SS block the sun as well as other palms. That's not going to happen anytime soon lol! I jump the gun, but I do have a tree to the west also blocking late afternoon sun but your right, it is gonna burn still. I'll have to protect it .

@Chester B, I usually buy mulch by the truck load but its been closed. Your right, it is hot here. We're having an unseasonably warm spring. I should just go to Lowes & by some bag's :greenthumb:

@jimmyt, Thanks! Right now am watering 40mins wait 15mins then another 40mins so (80 minutes) once a week..  In summer i do the same process but 45min ( 90 minutes) twice a week. I also water by hand every now & then but the more thirsty stuff like Queens, Sabal Minors etc. I just spray the mulch around a bit, keep the area moist.

8B palms

A really nice collection of hardy palms. Did you start them from seed or where did you purchase them from? Jungle Music?

Thank you! Most were purchased. I have got a few from Jungle Music in the past but of the ones posted I've purchased from Kevin Weaver in Lake Elsinore, CA,  Josh in Vista, CA , Discovery Palms from Joe in San Marcos,CA, multiflora palms in Fallbrooks & PlantDelight.com.

I'm growing alot from seed (most acquired from people on palmtalk) but they're not quite ready to be planted yet.

The Acoelorrhaphe Wrightii, looks really cool, been trying to find one of two of those for a while myself, do you know if your source for those offer shipping, can you recall the price range. Your Brahea armata is also amazing.

He does offer shipping but I believe there's a minimum order of, I want to say $300? He ships a bunch of cycads mostly but if the price is right he'll do palms. I believe Texascoldhardypalms has 5 gallons available & he ships. He's here on palm talk as well :greenthumb:

Syagrus Microphylla, another zone pusher.

      I schlep through my neighborhood often because I'm one of those dog walkers twice a day.  Yesterday and today I did something a little different, donning a custom made face mask, I took a real camera with me to take some photos of some of the neighbor's homes.  So are a few of the homes I walk by regularly and I skipped quite a few only because eventually the dog got thirsty and I didn't bring her water bottle.  First stop was the park and Lake Leucadia.  Did I mention it rained a little here the last few days?

      I have no wish to bring up the 800 lb gorilla sitting in most of our living rooms. My father was in the FBI so I grew up with 800 lb gorillas. Suffice it to say my husband and I are old and afflicted with conditions and ailments (type A blood anyone?) that render us both high risk. So, voluntarily, we have self-quarantined at our home on one of the larger residential properties in Cape Coral (0.61 acre - don't laugh). But we are blessed to be surrounded by 100s of my beloved palms and tropical plants that provide a cooling oasis and privacy. It's so restful to work in the yard, lots to be done to take my mind off the woes of the world.
      I thought I'd take some time to share photos of our little palm paradise as it looks like we won't be going anywhere for a while. I started outside the front door and continued into our 3-lot Garden Lot, which is fully planted except for our 10x16' garden shed.

      So one of my Washingtonia robusta started to go yellow and then the edges went brown and it slowly died. Then, two of my other Washingtonia have started to do the same thing a while back, but are still alive. Now, my final healthy one is starting to show the very beginning stages (slight yellowing in the oldest leaf). Then some of my Saw palmetto seedlings started to show "symptoms" and now it seems like my Archontophoenix cunninghamiana is showing it a little bit, although it fortunately doesn't seem to be progressing much. I can't tell if this is some sort of disease (I don't understand how potted palms indoors in Virginia would get a palm disease) or if they have some sort of fungus. Should I completely soak them in copper fungicide? I'm not going to lie, I am kind of freaking out a bit. Any advice would be helpful. I am not new to growing palms indoors during the winter and have been watering them each as I believe they should be watered while indoors (for example, Washingtonia get the least amount of water, to prevent rot). What could this be? Can I save these? I never had this problem before.

      Living in the Azores since 2015 after spending most of my adult life in New England, I've had a chance to explore most of S. Miguel island as a hiking guide. I've also started growing several palms in at quinta minuvida orchard lodge, our business. Most of them are looking pretty good by now.
      Posting here some images of my palm garden, the neighborhood and the island. I've found that pretty much everything grows since the climate is even, with high humidity and rain. I don't fertilize or water any of my palms or fruit trees.
      Please feel free to ask questions.

      The Roystonea on the forefront has been on the ground about three years now from 1 gallon container.
