Yet another very interesting and informative article.

FYI I have a P. Baronii in a pot in my lanai in Naples, Florida and it is quite happy here.

Just wondering if you have heard of the spines of P. Lamerei being poisonous? A friend was 'stung' by one and had a very bad reaction.

Thanks a mint Geoff. I have a young P. horombense raised from seed & some other species I am about to try germinating. Can't think where else I could have found so much useful info. As usual, the pictures you've gathered for the article are amazing too.

Geoff,
you have one of the most entertaining sites. I love all your photos and your info is so...informative.
I reside in the Point Loma San Diego and have a couple of Lamerei, one of which is getting to a nice size, about 4 ft, and a Namaquanum, and a Geayi. I am happy to report good news on the Lam and the Nam but the Geayi have been a challenge. Too much water i think.
I will get more and control myself with the watering thing better.
Thanks for the advice and guidance.

PS we have a truly wonderful pair of Bismarckia palms at Balboa Park if you're ever here, go see them, they are by the Botanical Garden (slat house)

Sincerely, DZ

I should have known it.
I wish I had room in my yard for some of those beauts. I'm not much of a palm guy but Bismarckias are truly exceptional and well worth the real estate.

Ditto; nice orientation to pachypodiums. I was considering trying to start some seed and am looking (around DG) for some tips. Like that awesome article about aloes- have my first successful attempt at aloe seeds- (half-dozen A. polyphylla)-couple look like they are going to make it.
