I do some experiments and learning in my garden with palms so you don't have to experience the pain! Look at my old threads to find various observations and tips!

Phil was super nice and my plants were all packed like he expected UPS to drop-kick the box to me in Texas lol. I finally got some Lytos, so I'm happy.

Love 'em. Great place to hang out too. Phil always loves to spend time talking palms.

So true and when I'm there by myself I sure don't mind. Go with the wife or my daughter neither have embraced my palm collection habit and all I get from them is impatient eye rolls telling me to hurry lol.  When I visit Jungle Music I like to take the time to walk up and down every isle THEN visit with Phil.  Always come away learning something new.

Another shout out for Phil. All 3 of the palms I wanted were on his 10 day special at the same time, but 2 were only in big sizes. Shipping was going to cost me more than the plants, so he gave me a sale price on a smaller Kentia. Palms again showed up packed so well that UPS could have dropped them out of an airplane and no dirt would spill out of the pots.

If you are a serious Palm collector than you already know Phil maintains one of the single greatest Palm species repositories in North America, if not the entire world. If you haven’t already bought a rare and/or virtually unobtainable Palm yet from Jungle Music Palms & Cycads at some point you will and you will be happy that Phil will be there to help guide you through the myriad of genuses and species that he has endeavored to make his life long passion and so generously share with us all.

Excellent Seller!!!


Thank You Phil and crew at Jungle Music Palms & Cycads!!!
