Biennial 2016 Coco de Mer

Peter Timmermans

Recommended Posts

Still sorting out my 8000+ photos of the 2016 Biennial and Post-Biennial. Both trips were a perfect mix of cultivated palms and palms in habitat. I had a great time, so a big thank you  to everyone who organised and attended the trips! One of the higlights was of course the iconic Double Coconut with leaves up to 10 m2 growing in the botanic gardens of Singapore and Darwin. An amazing palm considering the poor conditions in which it grows in the Seychelles.

What do you mean by "poor conditions", Peter ?

Personally I wish some botanic gardens or lucky garden owners would be inspired by the beautiful ecosystem we can see in Vallée de Mai.
