Nice Dave, not to user friendly that Aiephanes,  I got a vine climbing up my PIggy, not too keen

on taking it off.

That Pritchardia any idea where it came from or what it might be. I think P. lanaiensis was

grouped into another specie by Don Hodel, canʻt remember if it was P. glabrata native to  Lanai or not. or there

was a mystery Pritchardia in the town square of Lanai city, which I think was brought over from some collections.

P. laiensis was renamed a while back, and everyone covets that thing. It's my favorite big Pritchie. Love the flaring straight trunk (need a pic to show that)  and that big, fat crown of leaves. My specimen keeps trying but failing to set viable seed. I can't for the life of me recall where I got it; if I could, I go back and try to get more.

Trachycarpus wagnerianus

20200605_131942.thumb.jpg.8952d5e5d0ad7e70cb2b650cc3a019a3.jpg  Bought as something much more exotic 10 yrs earlier, however it was not...

Trachycarpus fortunei

20200605_132015.thumb.jpg.39969b0b9e6128af1080660f0c449655.jpg    It was moved here and sulked for about 5 years.

Cocothrinax inaguensis

20200605_132051.thumb.jpg.b3b5cbdee82e01e1766694009d0430fb.jpg     Quite undemanding, i.e.  It receives no care at all.

Chamaedorea plumosa

20200605_135429.thumb.jpg.2e60f3548363e8a888e709d88efa6abb.jpg     Interesting mottled trunk, 12ft tall and seeding, my smaller ones are still all green.

Dypsis pembana

20200605_135524.thumb.jpg.7e3cbc2b7440cd54a48e0be4ddbf5c06.jpg  A single, fast and again no effort, no attention like everything that I have.

Chamaedorea benziei

20200605_135630.thumb.jpg.163700e1293d6f3718713945bdb54aa8.jpg All of mine pushed out of the ground and wanted to fall over, plant them deep.

Dypsis rosea

20200605_135653.thumb.jpg.718f7d1e4e8f36c5aba6b412e0261423.jpg  Like Dypsis scottiana it is very skinny and needs to be planted in a group.

Hyophorbe indica

20200605_135728.thumb.jpg.d2ec3525a96dbbf3f96cc850e22bd6b7.jpg  In flower at the top at the moment, a beautiful strong fragrance lasting for weeks.

Chameaodorea  Normamya nornnbii

 

20200605_135813.jpg  Too slow for me 

Areca triandra

20200605_135832.jpg Looks ratty up top, Gets wind blown here.

Chamaedorea benzei  (both)

20200605_140043.jpg    pushes itself out of the ground.

Chamaedorea microspadix,

20200605_140136.jpg  beautiful seed display for months.

Chamaedorea oblongata 

20200605_140248.jpg  I know, but they are trucks!

 

Dypsis pinnatifrons

20200605_135954.jpg  a bit blurry.

20200605_140322.jpg    I could be anything but it is Howea bellmoreana

Chamaedorea elegans

20200605_140410.jpg  The much maligned parlour palm, I love it.

Wodyetia bifurcata

20200605_140554.thumb.jpg.43b7d00cf114c2ce50c260ce128f7664.jpg  The one in the shade is half of the size.

Howea bellmoreana

20200605_140616.thumb.jpg.250f1d0ffc827ad1b8270144e01d9bf9.jpg  Slow but about 10 times the size of the one in the shade shown earlier.

Cyphophoenix elegans

20200605_140640.thumb.jpg.6f25174b9d5dd5e39817f36fc86c5fe7.jpg  not as fast but handles wind better than the Cy nucele

Dypsis leptocheilous

20200605_140705.thumb.jpg.a6370642bc39491ae872328d6b915cc1.jpg  It is in more shade than it needs and is very slow

Chamaedorea ernesti-augustii

20200605_140736.thumb.jpg.0c0ca2ec7c41e6672530e62db50c0942.jpg  Like old people,  passed the most attractive stage, but is still in seed.

Caryota mitis

20200605_140849.thumb.jpg.e6465201f1a3a33caeb67a5c8f614ff8.jpg  Near the end, it has started to seed at the top, a couple of more years tops.

Chamaedorea Klotzschiana

20200605_140913.thumb.jpg.def0a7107684bf360f92b548714dab59.jpg  Of my 2 doz odd Chamies  this has always been the most hard to spell.

These Clinostigma samoense, in my opinion, were the most beautiful palm trunks I have ever seen. Unfortunately, they are long gone due to crown rot and the possibility of damage to 

a neighbors property during hurricane season. I've got a couple more though, so all is good.
