I don’t remember seeing a bottle palm set seed in California before. This gal is very happy.

How long has that Bottle been in the ground? It looks fantastic and is taking on the “Seus” look that we viewed in the older Bottles at Fairchild more than a few years back.

I have no doubt that you play a paramount role in extending the boundaries of Tropical palms that can be grown in Southern California. I would imagine that you have many more specimens of other varieties that are outside normal parameters!

Sweet Matty.  Love the ring spacing on that specimen, it shows it's happy with that vigorous growth.  I have a neighbor up the hill from me with a Hyophorbe verschaffeltii that sets seed regularly the last few years, but I can't recall seeing his Hyophorbe lagenicaulis set seed.  Are you sure you didn't take that photo somewhere else and just claim it's in your garden????:floor:

My 20 + year old sets fruit like crazy.  Not so sure they mature.  Here's a pic from 2019.  Loaded again now.  Will take a pic tomorrow.
