Really awesome..  your collection is great!   That Tricho...  where did you get that?  It looks so much different than the one I have.. I'm pretty sure mine is a terscheckii but.. is that a terscheckii??   The trachycarpus look way better in your climate than they do here.  Impressive!  How tall do princeps get ? The number of segments make that palm look so much cooler.. does it have wind resistance ?

Nice man..

Thats a good question about wind resistance...

not real sure but they seem to do ok...as long as

the wind isn't blowing-lol


Seriously they seem ok 


Yes on the Tricho...Terscheckii is what it was sold as from someone

on e-bay-

Yeah...the Princeps is a true Prince in the Trachy world maybe growing

to at least 30' from habitat pics I have seen,possibly taller but they do

grow on the sides of cliffs.
