Congrats. I love the palms I just got but if I lived in Hawaii I think my order list might be quite different.

You sir have good taste!  It could almost be verbatim my list.  Except I would have added Cyrtostachys bakeri and Cyrtostachys elegans.  Congratulations.

Mahalo, my biggest problem is I live in a desert w/abut 20" of rain a year and lots of strong sun.  All of the above come from quite wet climates.  Good thing irrigation water is not to expensive and I live on an lot w/a cess pool.  If I was connected to the city sewer system those idiots would assume all my water goes into the sewer system and charge me for that as well as for the water.

Couldn't wait any longer.  Planted the first of my birthday present today.  I cleared the terrace a few weeks ago and have been watering twice a week to keep ground moisture up.  Today I tore out the old irrigation line that went in something like 14 years ago and replaced the drippers with 180* spray heads.  Pressure looked good each sprayer reacing about 2/5 feet off center and they are overlapping.

One down and 16 to go.  LOL

Did some more work on the irrigation replacing drippers with sprayers.  Planted two more today.  In the third picture showing both you can also see the irrigation water spraying all around.

Pinanga coronata and Welfia Regia

Been watering once a day w/the irrigation system to build up ground moisture.  Today I dug two holes mixed in some 12-4-12 fertilizer and approx. 1/2 of a 3/4 cubic ft bag of black cinder in each.  Soil had a nice moisture content, not dry, not mud down at least 18". Planted these two babies:

EuterpeSpOrangeCrownshaft, Pinanga coronata

Everytime I walk back there and look at the rock terraces I built I wonder how many tons of rock did I move back when I was young and had a strong back.  LOL   LOTS AND LOTS.   LOL

Two more in the ground.  I think that's 7.  That means 10 more to go.  Taking much more time this time planting by researching SIZE that the palm my reach before selecting planting location.  Today it was Licuala grandis and Chamaedorea geonomiformis

Watered the area for two days to insure there was ground moisture as we've only had 10" this year and only about 0.3"  this months.

Dug the hole after breakfast and planted after lunch.  Mixed in a fair amount of black cinder and a bit of palm fertilizer 12-8-12 (I think).  Got a stake in there as well as the palm tended to fall over.  It will get morning sun til mayb 10:30 and then shade the rest of the day.

Ravenea hildebrandtii

Two more in the ground this morning.  Relaxing after lunch now.  Later I gotta plant a Magnolia tree for shade in another location.  Shade is important here in this Hawaiian Desert.

Dypsis rosea
