Gratuitous palm shot

Recommended Posts

Just for the people who have not grown a Chamaedorea woodsoniana, but know how big a foxtail can get (too big), 

well, it is probably the tallest Chamaedorea and it is not too happy since it punched through the maple canopy, which has subsequently disappeared.

It is about 20'high and like me, past its most attractive age.

Oh man Steve, your post gave me a chuckle. I can so relate to the adage at the bottom of your posts. Palm pic is pretty amazing as well.

Thanks mate, I really just wanted to show people how tall a Chamaedorea can get.

Who else has a tall Chamey?

So many of mine are so tall that you can barely see their canopies but at least the trunks add interest to the garden when there are a few close together.

I was wondering the same, might be rubber, IDK.

It's not a snake - I think it's just some rope that he's using to tie the Chamaedorea trunks together.

Woodsonianas keep growing and growing and growing...until they fall over!

My dad hangs rubber snakes on the trunks of his mango and kumquat trees in a desperate attempt to scare off squirrels and birds!

Oh it’s a snake alright...just not a live one. I move a couple of them around occasionally to “spook” the rats that sometimes are present in the yard.

Nice idea!  :greenthumb:  I saw that a couple of trunks were tied together on the left and assumed that it was the same thing.
