GROWING PALMS IN CENTRAL FLORIDA
Transplanted from Washington D.C. (where the only palms I ever saw were the ones attached to human hands stuck in my face at every other street corner) I moved to Florida in 1991 and started growing palms at my new home during the summer of 1993. As of August 2000 I have over 100 different species growing here, each one with it's own unique characteristics and story.
WHILE THIS WEBSITE DEALS MAINLY WITH PALM GROWING IN CENTRAL FLORIDA ...
any palm grower be it professional or as a hobby will be able to pick out certain ideas as well as palms that are worth trying in their own corner of the world.
The same palm seed ???
Sorry about the picture quality, I will re-do and post soon. But in the meantime each of the seeds in the above picture are from separate Syagrus romanzoffiana (Queen Palm) specimens. The one on the far left is an uncommon variety (at least around here) with obviously large seeds. A quarter is used for scale below each seed. The middle seed is the most common or typical queen palm seed size. And the one on the right is a seed off the Santa Catarina variety.

How To Stay Out Of The Rain In Central Florida
Plant yourself a Bismarckia palm just as these young men (in the above pic) did! The palm itself is barely older than my sons, 6 yrs & 8 yrs at the time of photo (Summer '99).
