The little one I  bought from you last year is looking so healthy and growing faster than any other licuala/Lanonia that I have ever had.  For years  I avoided them thinking they would  be touchy or delicate when for me it turned out to be a tough baby and easy to grow so far.  Actually could you put another one in with my current order please ?  To all my loyal fans and readers out there in Palm Land I can honestly say that if you can grow a Licuala grandis then a dassie will grow for you too.  I have bought a few youngsters from Happypalms over time and can tell you that you will get a very healthy, strong and happy baby palm.

I know L elegans lives in Melbourne but I thought grandis would too. I had them survive the big freeze about 20 years ago. They are only touchy about water for me. Like Kentia, water it one day late and they're a goner. BTW I went to see Remi's second litter on the weekend 4 white boys and a dark fawn girl.

L elegans (L peltata var sumawongii) is actually one I couldn’t keep alive. Was happy in a pot but planted in a spot without canopy and a combination of sun and cold got it. If I have my time again I’d go deep shade and just accept slow growth.

That’s one of the tricks to my garden the canopy combined with the combination of rocks of all sizes in the soil using the thermal mass and sandy soil having the advantage of warming up a bit quicker then other soil types in winter plus the deep shade you can go a lot of understory palms which are generally a lot more tropical looking with so many new ones available
