Hi there, I own a Kentia palm (2 stems actually) which I found in a bin a few years ago and is growing back well.
I want to ask you guys for advice about the position they are currently growing, which is a bit inconvenient to place in my house.
As you can see from the images they are kind of V shape positioned so the foliages are spreading horizontally more then vertically. I know that Kentia are particularly sensible about repotting and messing with roots in general so my questions are: Do you think it possible to split and reposition them in a more vertical manner? If possible, can you advise me how to deal with the roots and the process? If it is not a feasible option could you suggest me a technique to "direct" the stems? Thank you very much in advance for your help,
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!
Last evening my son and daughter-in-law took me out for an early Mother's Day dinner at Bonefish Grill in Cape Coral. While we waited outside for our table to be ready I noticed a solitary Chamaerops planted near the entrance. It was 6-7' tall and perfectly grown with bluish leaves and prominent gold spines. Chamaerops grow well here but are not often planted because most people prefer more tropical looking palms. But I would plant one like this in a heartbeat.

I've been admiring this huge cycad for nearly 30 years at the German American Social Club in Cape Coral, FL. It has 3 trunks and is about 15' tall and wide. I have no idea what genus and species it is so maybe someone can tell me. I've been meaning to take photos all these years but never had a camera close by. Today at our outdoor band rehearsal I got my chance.

I posted this already on palms in pots but some people directed me here for more help. I just want to know if My En Lehmannii will say blue in South Florida. If the rain is to much can I just being them in and out side as needed to keep the blue? These are my questions. Plus I have this Dioon Spinulosa pup with roots. The leaves on it are from a old flush before I bought it (so I am told), Will new flush come in July/ Juneish? I know I wait but I am curious and new to cycads. Thanks everyone
