Palm Seedlings in Cape Coral, FL: a photo essay

Recommended Posts

I've been wanting to go out and take photos since New Years but have been recovering from major surgery. I'm up and around for now and have decided to do a photo layout of some of the palm seedlings I've grown from seeds over the past couple years. The list is not comprehensive and includes a Dypsis and Cham turckheimii I bought rather than germinated. Most everybody has seen photos of mature palms but few of us have seen them as small seedlings or juveniles.

1. Ptychosperma sp 'Cartegna'

Very nice! And many of these do great in the ground and should be grown and planted more.
