Looks very nice. Green Grin! If I lived where I could PIG some I would. But due to where I live I'm content to grow them in pots training them to be succulent bonsai. Green Grin!

Drooling I wish I could have some. Beautiful family you got there! I have admired those many years ago thanks to ebay. I also wanted a flame thrower palm. Reality sets in more and more these days with what I can collect. Sighing! I cant wait until I get my own botanical garden... Hilarious! Giant glass domes with the perfect climate to provide a home for my worldly travels to bring back! Could you imagine? That would be living the dream... ahhh....

YES Audrey, that would be wonderful!!!!!! I would never, ever sleep inside again if I had that. Out in a hammock among my botanicals.

The bottle palm is a pioneer in our landscape. It's the first plant that my husband picked out all on his own and was actually excited about. It opened the door for more and more plants. Thank you, Bottle Palm!!!

I had to look up the Flame Thrower palm....Wow! That is spectacular!

It is! You should get one and post daily pictures of it for me when it throws a fresh leaf Sticking tongue out If I lived in zone 10 I probably would not be able to afford a home and be forced to sleep outside with my vast palm collection. I like the hammock idea. I have just added that to my fantasy of a perfect life. A girl can dream right? Thumbs up
