Copernicia macroglossa grows 2 feet overnight!

It would appear so, but was due to an overdue cleanup...  Copernicia berteroana to its left not looking too shabby either! :lol: Who knew these subtropical species would thrive in the Arizona desert? :yay:

Looks like they’re finally staggered enough to appreciate the crowns.  Really nice.

      My Copernicia rigida finally seems to have taken off this year with our record breaking heat waves. It's actually been planted in that spot for about 10 years now from a small seedling,but has just begun producing its first few upright fronds.Its been very slow for me, (maybe too much shade) but I'm hopeful it has an accelerated growth rate from this point forward.

      Had a Copernicia berteroana freeze and die this past winter,so a new planting space just opened up,in an already full garden.Decided to go with another species of Copernicia for the replacement.Here's a super blue yarey I grew from seed I collected in habitat,in Cuba.Let's see what it can do,now that it has space to stretch its roots!

      Still quarantining here in Cape Coral (It's Just Paradise), FL. And it's been a while since I posted any photos. I spent several weeks sewing masks and surgical caps for my son and daughter-in-law on the medical front lines as well as masks for my husband and me. It's also been hot and sweltering as well as drought stricken around here and because of that and that the monthly injection I give myself for chronic migraines ran out a week early, I was unable to spend much time outside. But..... We got a whopping 0.4" of rain this past week (the rest of the FL got 10x that) followed by one last gasp of cool, dry air and I was able to rectify my oversight and take some photos.
      About a month ago someone on PT asked me to take updated photos of my Caribbean Garden in front of the house. Around 95% of the palms in this garden come from that part of the world. The few interlopers are grandfathered in because they were planted before I adopted a unifying theme for this part of the yard. The genus Coccothrinax forms the backdrop. Some of them were planted as far back as 2004 and have weathered multiple hurricanes and tropical storms. If I were forced to plant only one genus of palm, Coccos would be my choice. They are tough yet elegant and the sight of those starlike leaves swaying with the breeze can brighten anyone's soul.

      This is my last drone video from our trip to Dominican Republic. It is Leonel Mera's palm collection at his ranch near Santiago. We arrived a little late in the day and we had a long drive that evening to get down to the south side of the island so we did not have a lot of time here. So unfortunately I was only able to do one flight on one side of his property. The video covers about half of his collection. There were quite a few bigger Copernicias on the other side that I did not get to film.

      The Copernicia genus is spectacular. Even fan palm haters like Copernicias. And their spiny petioles and saw-toothed leaves just add to their charm. You don't want to hug them but you can be in awe of them from a distance. I have over half a dozen of them planted on our property, including two species I collected in the wild on an eco-tour I took to Cuba in 2014. They are not the fastest growing palms in the world but well worth the wait if you have the time. I took the following photos today on Day 7 of our official self-imposed quarantine. If you don't have a mass gathering to attend, have a look.
      Copernicia baileyana - my second Copernicia bought off eBay about 10 years ago. Back then any species was hard to find

      Copernicia alba - probably the commonest species in the genus
