So What Caught Your Eye Today?

 Jason, must be C. hovo time. Mine recently dropped a frond as well, so beautiful. Man you did get a head start and a healthy one at that, already a monster. 

 I planted the one in the garden back in 2012 as a 1 gal., but it’s really speeding up. Thanks for the posts.

I was at Disneyland yesterday and spotted this. Anybody know what it is? Thanks for your help. I thought at first it was a King Palm but the inflorescence and structure is different. Harry

I think these are Veitchia palms - but which species (spiralis/arecina...), I do not know.

Who would have thought, lol. I expected Kentiopsis oliviformis to be slow growing and they are in my back jungle but put them in full sun and bam, very fast, to fast.

My largest Archontophoenix myolensis dropping a frond. The crownshaft is starting to show a little bit of an aqua hue like they are sometime known to do. IMG_0739.thumb.jpeg.27b83854fb2b5dcc685ba9b67f6f4b8d.jpeg

The deep green leaflets and woody brown stems are killer! Eventually distichous and almost looks like something you’d see in Whoville at least from the pics I’ve seen…

I’ve killed 2 so far one 7 gallon left.

The new frond has opened on my teddy bear.  Already very fuzzy on the bases of the petioles, not trunking yet.  The lastellianus nearby is showing a bit of primise too in the new spear.  The color is brighter than the photo suggests, like rhubarb or an almost ripe strawberry.

A few ( of many ) perfect, single trunk Chamaerops specimens seen while roaming the 'hood..

And a nice Mule peeking over a fence nearby...  Specific yard faces northeast.  Particular neighborhood seems well suited for trialing some neat stuff. Lots of extensive, tall tree cover / extensive grassy greenspace belts tucked between blocks of homes.

Areca novohibernica. Similar to A. guppyana, but more robust.

Looks fantastic Jason. That fuzzy tomentum was like petting a puppy, it’s way too tall nowadays.

Dypsis hiarakae. Nice palm, with an interesting leaf arrangement and super thin trunk. A grouping in a smaller garden would look good.

This morning, my attention was snagged by a Licuala (sp Kalimantan?) bearing fruit in a pot.

@Okkidoggi, stunning and perfectly grown. 
 

How long have you been growing it and what type of potting mix are you using?

I've been growing it for three years, bought it from Indonesia. I use standard potting mix from the garden center and topping it with sphagnum moss. It's positioned in the corridor, receiving partial sunlight and rain, and I rarely need to water it. By the way, I’m in Singapore, means I seldom need to water my plants. 

Interestingly, my other Licuala, planted in the ground in a shady part of my garden, grows slower and has longer petioles

Oh, and I believe it's flowering, not fruiting.

This little guy caught my attention yesterday when i was removing a mistletoe infested tree.  Anyone know the ID?  It was in shade but will now be in the sun part of the afternoon, and im hoping it won't notice or even like it better.  I have my thoughts, but specifics are not my strong suit on many of them yet and i could be way off. Growing natively in west central florida dry coastal hammock forest near black cherry, slash pines, eastern red cedar, and various oak species.

First flower on this solitary Chrysalidocarpus Heteromorpha (maybe that name has changed?). 
 

IMG_1054.thumb.jpeg.a79e2dd22eef1150575d92f4401fb965.jpeg
 

Hard to get a picture of the entire plant since it’s surrounded by palms in pots. Really cool tristichous leaf pattern.

Hi,

had the time to stroll through the garden after some busy weeks - 

a couple things (palms "+") caught my eye...

Here we go:

cf0001.thumb.jpg.6d1a6123affb47e043a37e9e75a8cecb.jpg

C. fallaensis is flexing its muscles for the first time. When I had the honor to welcome Bo Göran @bgl over here in 2018, it was 

nothing more than a very vulnerable looking two strap seedling...

ch0001.thumb.jpg.61a24b17d4e1bea2e9a53c0c6b90a526.jpg

At the same time (today) outside behind the wall  - C. hospita starts to get into shape. Seed grown as its C. fallaensis buddy,

enjoying full sun through the day.

Lurking "around" in deep shade and wind protection - 

ln0001.thumb.jpg.8b7b0a46486586762289f708638993df.jpg

L. ramsayi (as always... - seed grown) 

A "side project" - just for the fun of it, I kept a chopped off head of a pine, put in water and then in a pot, planted it out and here 

we are...

pine0011.thumb.jpg.0b5049bec96fd39415ff9cb48df38fa9.jpg

Amazing! Looking forward to enjoy you with some delicious food or beverages... :) 

Al right, back to the topic -

cb0001.thumb.jpg.47a64471913fff4158b9ef3e4e10ce3e.jpg

Atfer having it kept in larger pots for years - I gave myself a push and put it in the ground couple months ago (only survivor of a 

probabaly 10seeds batch from rps) and it seems to enjoy its new environment. It looks strong and promising -

C. borhidiana. 

Finally an eye candy for me -

bn0001.thumb.jpg.7f16a784d23611d4062544f699b019a6.jpg

B. nicobarica lost a boot recently and shows again his amazing gloom...

I feel like this might be what @Billeb and I are growing. Floribunda sourced and labeled as "Dypsis heteromorpha" but it stays solitary and looks like a decaryi hybrid. Curious on Dale's thoughts to whether or not this might be the same palm.

Billy, @Hilo Jason and I discussed the possibilities of this before. As you know, there’s another thread about these plants I have updated with mine. I think it’s a possibility they are similar. The issue is my largest one is from Josh and not sourced from FB. And I’m not 100% sure the ones we got from Ron are sourced from FB either. I’ll ask him tomorrow. 
 

Anyway, it’s one of my favorites in the garden. Trouble free, fast growing, sun tolerant and unique. What’s not to like? Hard to picture right now as the lower fronds need to be cleaned up to appreciate the ringed trunk.
