Did a mental hike around the garden (2 acres) and came up with this list of what's in the ground.  11 are newly planted during June and early July.  That's a total of 75 different palms.  There are a number of more that one planting of the same palm.  Still lots of room for more.  Just need to clear some more areas and check amount of shade for new plantings.  Then there is the problem of enough money to buy more and more and more.  LOL

There are still about 8 more in the shade house waiting for enough energy to dig holes.  LOL

You’ve got a LOT of room for more species. I’m on a measly 1/4 acre and house, pond, and hardscaping have to share space with 135 palm species and about 320 palms total. It’s crowded in places indeed but I love the rain forest/jungle feel. That said, when species like Caryota die out, they don’t need to be replaced.

Yea my palms are all planted about 6-10 feet apart.  No need to cram till I fill the wide open spaces.  LOL  Hope I live long enough to "fill" my two acres.  To bad I goofed off for about 10 years or I'd be alot farther along in collecting.  With 320 on 1/4 acre you must have a nice jungle.

My 0.75 acres went from ~40 dying water oaks to ~400 total plantings in the last 3 years.  I have around 75 cycads, 145 palms and 125 agaves in the ground, along with a bunch of bananas, heliconia, a couple of Magnolias and a perimeter noise/privacy hedge of Viburnum.  I've got the same issue, since I still have about 55 cycads, 110 palms and 60 agaves in pots, with not much more space to plant any of them.  Yet somehow I keep buying more???  :D

That's an impressive list of palms! I agree with Jim, you have room for plenty more, so plant away! I suppose water is a serious limitation for you, but your palm choices reflect that.

Last time I made a full inventory back in February 2016, I had 321 palms of 104 species. Most were planted on one acre with open spaces alternating with denser areas.  It's more garden than jungle in appearance, but the palms are finally boasting some height. I lost a few palms to the eruption, and since added quite a few on the second acre where I continue to expand, though very slowly because it's all hand clearing. I don't expect to ever fully plant out the second acre, but you never know... Thinking of a Floribunda trip soon!
