    Thought my little trees were looking especially happy this morning, after a few afternoons in a row of rain. All of the winter dust is definitely gone now. There are 4 individuals in this pot, about 20 yrs old.

    Really a pretty little palm purple and looking very healthy. Is this is as big as it gets? I guess it is if they are 20 years old. I am simply amazed at the number and variety of plants that you have, especially after looking at the multitude of plants you have contributed to the database...you could be a plant museum. I hope you have lots of space:like:

    Wow, thanks for sharing that. I have a parlour palm that I shift from my bedroom to the front balcony (for more sunlight). It's my only non-work 'pet' plant. I have other palms that spend time in my room but they are awaiting distribution for my tree business's marketing.

    Mine's smaller than all of yours but much younger, I'm guessing. It only complains when I forget to water it for two weeks.

    Thanks & thanks! These keep getting bigger, so IDK what the size limit is. Vitrsna, not all of the plants I've photographed are mine. Many are spotted "in the wild" on flower/plant-hunting excursions, but TY!

    Brisbane, I'd love to see your cute plant! Mine has been moved around central OH a few times, then to AL about 8 yrs ago. Seems they'll put up with about anything! Especially loves being outside under the big trees for summer though. Here's another pot with another pretty big one, and some more recently acquired babies.

    Oooh!! I think I have one of those! I'ver never known what its name is, but it looks just the same. It's gotten a lot bigger since I bought it as a tiny little thing. Stands about 2 feet now, and it's just big everywhere, really spread out.

    When yours puts out new shoots, does it start out as just a pointy stalk looking thing? And then the leaves slowly unfurl?

    Oh sure!

    It doesn't look as big in this image as it actually is! :)

    And here's the stalky thing I was talking about, that your photo illustrates so well. It's already just begun to unfurl, so it doesn't look quite as sharp as it starts out.

    Yes, that does also look like a parlor palm making a happy new leaf! Cool! TY for sharing your lovely plant. :+) Keep up the great work!

    Love your kid art!! I wouldn't trade my kids' masterpieces for any Picasso or Rembrandt.
