I've been wanting to go out and take photos since New Years but have been recovering from major surgery. I'm up and around for now and have decided to do a photo layout of some of the palm seedlings I've grown from seeds over the past couple years. The list is not comprehensive and includes a Dypsis and Cham turckheimii I bought rather than germinated. Most everybody has seen photos of mature palms but few of us have seen them as small seedlings or juveniles.

2. Dypsis ifanadianae w/heel
3. Drymophloeous oliviformis

This palm just keeps getting more and more beautiful. Just dropped a leaf sheath a few days ago and couldn’t help but snap a few photos.
Region or state：Madagascar Alternative names：Ankaizin de coco The kernel is about the size of a peanut. It contains a lot of coconut oil, the aroma of coconut is five times that of ordinary coconut. It has a sweet aftertaste, which can be called the king of coconuts. The locals in Madagascar collect the nuts and smash them to take out the kernels, which can be eaten directly or after baking. They will preserve the extra kernels by salting them, which can be used as a condiment in cooking.
Anyone grow Dypsis andilamenensis? Anyone know if any are available? kept? How it would best be kept?By Mr_Marojejya
I fell in love with this palm and hope to grow it one day. I think it is a stunner. I hope it will be more widely grown one day. It has been discovered for quite a while so I'm surprised it isn't more widely grown any ideas why? Does no one like it or something.
i find it far more attractive than D. scandens because this appears to have much wider leaflets, what do you think
If anyone grows it, would you tell your story?
(or if you have any seeds...?)
Yesterday we traveled back to the Fort Myers Palm Park in downtown on Martin Luther King Ave to check on the status of two seeding Copernicias. I also took a few minutes to take photos of other palms.
Sabal palmetto Lisa x2: These are the wild Sabal Lisas rescued from certain destruction during renovations of I-75 about 10 years ago. The City of Ft. Myers donated space in this palm park where they will live in perpetuity. Notice that the palm on the right holds on to its boots; the one on the left does not. The palm on the left is my avatar.
Dypsis cabadae: very pretty and elegant
Syagrus schizophylla with seeds
Serenoa repens Silver: well trimmed and flowering
