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!

Luis ,

How long have you been growing the plant?

That is a fantastic plant! I had a surprise the other day a Macrozamia I thought I had lost is fluusing again.

11-11 was my birthday so I decided to pay Randy Decker a visit in the early morn. I ended up buying a massive E. Kisambo off him! It's at least 15'' in size. I promised him a pic when it was planted, so here it is! Thanks again Randy for the green monster!
