I'll at least pose the question - is there anything in particular that you are hunting for that, if we happen to come across it, would make a good inventory item?

Jeremy, have you taken over running the seed bank now? Just curious since I have extra seed I can donate once in a while.

I’m not sure any of these will be likely to show up on this list. @kinzyjr could certainly advise whether they might be available, but I don’t recall seeing any of these for sale.

@NatureGirl Thankfully, my responsibilities end at being Membership Chair currently.  Basically: outreach, recruiting and communication.  If you (or others) have seed to donate, please contact our coordinators at: Theseedbank@yahoo.com

@Frond-friend42 I can't promise anything up front since I don't collect and donate the vast bulk of our seeds, but I will make sure this list ends up in the right hands.  @Johnny Palmseed is probably right that we're more likely to find a winning Powerball ticket than collect 10 seeds of some of those, but having the list in mind helps greatly.  Sorry about the Hemithrinax.

Double-check the list below to make sure I got the correct species names:

Copernicia cowellii
Copernicia fallaensis
Dictyocaryum lamarckianum
Hemithrinax ekmaniana
Lemurophoenix halleuxii
Licuala ramsayi
Manicaria saccifera
Marojejya darianii
Pritchardia viscosa
Sabinaria magnifica

Yes,  Jeremy. That's the power-ball list. Thanks for taking an interest. I had misspelled some and you have them all correct here. 

Though I think these are mostly tropical. P. viscosa is subtropical (Kauai) may be a little hardier.

Still, you've got some good ones.

Happy hunting, 

Ben

I've sent 2 emails for some seeds with no reply.  Are they all sold out?   Interested in the Carpinteria 20/$5 and the Chamaedoria tepejilote 10/$5.  Thanks

They probably have the email but it’s not a business. It’s a volunteer organization so you might have to wait a few days for a response.

Both of the coordinators work full-time and volunteer as @Johnny Palmseed mentioned.  If it goes past this weekend without a response, PM me please and I'll see what I can do to help.

      We finally had a break in the rain today, so I decided to visit Chelsea Physic Garden. It was my first time visiting this place and the main draw for me was obviously the palms. There are some cracking specimens growing in the gardens, as well as quite a few other exotic plants and stuff that I will post.
      Their CIDP isn't anywhere near as big as some of the other London ones, but still a decent size...




       
      Here is their Washingtonia...



       
      It's labelled as 'Filifera', although I can clearly see red/brown on the petiole bases, so it is definitely a Filibusta hybrid. Maybe I should have corrected them haha. It doesn't get much sunlight either in that spot, which is heavily shaded. I think it was planted in 2010 possibly and it is about 20-25 foot tall now. I should have asked a worker about it.


       
      The Butia is probably the best palm in the entire garden...



      Lots of spent spathes on this Butia...

       
      The Jubaea Chilensis isn't bad either...

      The girth on this Jubaea trunk...


       
      Group shots...


       
      Quite a few Chamaerops on display...


       
      Trachycarpus Wagnerianus...

       
      Cordyline Australis...

       
      Musa Basjoo...


       
      Dicksonia Antarctica...



       
      Opuntia cacti...

       
      Agave Americana...?

       
      Nolina Nelsonii...?

       
      Surprised to see citrus Lemon growing outdoors...


       
      Surprised to see this in one of the glass houses. No idea whether it could be transplanted outdoors at some point?


       
      This is the biggest pepper plant I have ever seen. I'm guessing it is at least 3 years old and has clearly been overwintered.



       
      Unfortunately a lot of the glass houses were shut off, due to the pandemic and 'social distancing'. Some were still open though, thankfully.



















       
       
      One thing I will say, is that this garden has the potential to be better than it is. They could certainly plant a few more palms and exotics outdoors. Perhaps a Brahea Armata for instance, or some more outdoor cacti. Even just a few more Trachy's. I also get the impression they have been understaffed due to the pandemic and thus the general garden maintenance is not on point this year. Basically, it could be a bit better than it was. Lots of weeds growing in places and dead leaves on plants that could be cut back. A very rustic feel, which perhaps is intended.
      Not a bad garden at all though for central London, although the £12 ($17) entry fee is a bit steep, given that everything can be easily seen within 60-90 minutes basically. This isn't a big expansive garden like Kew or Wisley, where you need at least 5-6 hours. This is a relatively small garden in the heart of the city. A place to spend an hour or two on a summer's afternoon. Maybe in other years, when there hasn't been a pandemic, they have had more flowers and plants with more workers maintaining them. I will definitely be back again though, one day, when those palms are much bigger.

      I'm really proud of my husband's handiwork and want to show it off. This year I bought a 3x3x3' portable greenhouse to go with a 2x2x2' greenhouse I already had. No big deal, I suppose but my husband built wheeled carts with shelves for each of them so they are truly portable but not prone to blow away because they are bolted onto their bases. He made sure to leave space between 2x4s so water will fully drain and also between shelves. I will keep these on the lanai and use them to help germinate seeds and protect delicate seedlings. The 2x2 sailed through last winter. I am looking into buying small ceramic personal space heaters (200 watts) to provide warmth during cold snaps this coming winter so maybe I won't have to drag plants in/out so many times.
      While I was taking photos, I added some of the container garden on the back lanai, which is covered by two layers of shade cloth. Many of my young palm seedlings are spending the summer under canopy in the jungle. I just moved 6 A. macrocalyx seedlings outside because they were starting to sunburn even under shade cloth.

      Hi all!
       
      I’m in search of any footage of anything cycad related for a documentary over cycads. Would love to have anything you might have, especially of any plants in situ, their beauty, anatomy, etc.
      All locations and identifying attributes will be censored for the plants’ protection. Give me a quick DM if you’re able to help out. Let me know if you have any questions and I’d be happy to answer.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      I have been growing palms for about 5 years now and I live in a tiny village out in the rural countryside. There is no UHI effect for me out here. My nearest big town, Guildford, is about 3 miles northeast of me. Going by my own records, temperature extremes in recent years have varied from a low of -11C / 12F here in February 2018 to a high of 39C / 103F in both July 2019 and August 2020. 
      Here is a quick tour of some of my exotic collection, starting with a Musa Basjoo, Abyssinian Banana and some Cannas...



       
      Chamaerops Humilis...

       
      Trachycarpus Fortunei and Trachycarpus Nova growing at lightspeed here...

       
      The Washingtonia Filifera didn't even realise that we had an abnormally cold winter followed by the coldest spring on record. Hopefully it kicks on now...


       
      Washingtonia Robusta...

       
      All of my potted Washingtonia's defoliated after being left outdoors all winter long, unprotected. It was a colder than average winter and I had two nights that went down to 20F, as well as a few days that didn't rise above 32F. The pots were frozen solid like blocks of ice on several occasions, however they are ALL pushing new growth again. Unbelievable recovery rates on this species. 

       
      Jubaea Chilensis...



       
      Here is the Butia Odorata. This one has always suffered with some kind of deficiency or sickness, which effects the tips of the fronds. I can't diagnose the exact issue and don't know how to treat it. Thankfully it doesn't stop it growing and doesn't appear to be terminal...


       
      Hopefully my Cycas Revoluta will flush this year, since it didn't last year...

       
      I have a number of Chamaerops Humilis types here...

       
      The CIDP was left outdoors in it's pot all winter, unprotected. Big, strong spear on this one...

       
      The two Queens (Syagrus Romanzoffiana) looked like this a number of months back... 

      Here they are today, pushing new growth. Central growing points look strong...


      The bigger one has pushed out an entire new frond already, with a second frond just starting to emerge...

      The smaller one has a 3 emerging spears...

       
      I have a number of 'outdoor' cacti here too, which sometimes come indoors during winter.


       
      Chamadorea Radicalis...

       
      Archontophoenix Cunninghamiana...

       
      Phoenix Dactylifera planted out...

       
      Rhopalostylis Sapida var. Chatham Island...

       
      Beccariophoenix Alfredii...

       
      Another Abyssinian Banana and Trachycarpus Fortunei...


       
      The Trachycarpus Wagnerianus is coming along nicely...

       


       
      Yes, those are all tomatoes there... 

       
      I have gone tomato plant crazy this year...


       
      I've got more palms and plants to add, but that will do for now...
