Copernicia baileyana is a stunner

I germinated these from seeds in 2006. I can’t believe how cool they’ve turned out.

Looks like exquisite copernicia baileyana are attainable in inland socal, showstoppers all.  Nice job, the irrigation must be very effective as they look best when well watered in full sun.

Wow!  That is really impressive growth in 15 years from seed here in California Matty.  A combination of skill growing palms and a great micro-climate with plenty of heat for them.  Great job.

Here's one to compare that's about the same age,I grew from seed, entirely in Arizona. About the same size,but unfortunately,I can't let mine show it's true beauty yet,due to space constrictions.^_^ Hopefully someday...:greenthumb:

Looking great there.  Both of youz.  The Cuban palms are real showstoppers, especially as they put on some size.  It takes a lot of patience and discipline it seems, but man… worth the wait.  Bravo!

Just saw this palm at Scott’s and the pic does not do it justice.  A gorgeous palm, well grown.
