The main objective of today's trip is to go to swamp zone and take some pics of my favorite palm 'Nypa fruticans'.

As I know, Nypa fruits are floating object on water. In habitat Nypa fruits float, sprout, grow and flow along on river until they catch someting. This is why they expand quickly and widely!!

Thanks

That's a beautiful place and those are great pictures! I think Nypa is a very difficult palm to grow unless you can replicate their natural environment, and not too many people can do that. I tried a small one, but it didn't last long!

Metroxylon is a different story. They do like swampy areas, but can be grown successfully in drier (but tropical!) areas. I don't have any M. sagu, but M. warburgii, vitiense, salomonense and amicarum all thrive here.

Excellent pics! Those Satekentias are awesome! It would probably take 30 years or more to grow one that big in So Cal. I saw some beautifull Nypa Fruticans growing in a swampy pond area on the island of Morrea. A very beautifull palm for sure. Steve

Hi Jeff, Bo, Steve, Colin and Paul

Thanks for all comments.

Bo, now I have just two seedlings, I will try once  :D  ,very love Nypa.

Steve, good luck that I have some Satakentia seedlings, but worry about to wait 30 years old, so sad  ~>.<~

Paul, next week I plan to take more Nypa picture at another place. But now if you love see more, ok ok

Komkrit,

There are a couple of noticeable differences between D. leptocheilos and lastelliana:

1) lower fronds on leptocheilos tend to be more or less horizontal, while lastelliana has fronds that are very upright. See photo below (of lastelliana)

2) lastelliana has a thicker trunk than leptocheilos, and is a more robust palm in general. May be difficult to tell unless you have one of each side by side, or unless you have seen a number of each species so that you can memorize the basic differences

3) and this obviously is no help, unless you grow them yourself: leptocheilos is probably twice as fast as lastelliana.

Forgot to say that the one in your photo definitely looks like a D. leptocheilos. And that's a very impressive Copernicia baileyana!

bo i agree,that c.baileyana is fantastic.i was reading up on it in "the encyclopedia" & it said they are more interseting when young & one can really appreciate

the most striking feature--the leaf bases.i tend to agree after seeing the one at the home of ralph velez.

am i just splitting hairs,here? i guess i just felt a bit

"verbose" :P
