Default Ruskin, its probably better if you put links instead of pictures...

its hard to read the forum information when you have to scroll down the entire page and unfortunately my screen is the size of a small pea that has been bitten in half and thrown to the floor and kicked around a couple of times..if you know what i mean.

Default That Flame Thrower Palm Tree

Is absolutely beautiful. Talk about a rare palm. Imagine one of those in the front yard. I think everyone would turn their heads is amazement. Flame Thrower Palm Trees are actually a bit cold hardy. They can resist temperatures of 30 degrees which is great for a rare and exotic tropical palm tree

Default Exotic Palms and more exotic palms trees...

I cam across this thread and thought about all the other exotic palm trees which haven't been see, there are over 2000 different palm species out there. The only problem I have is the temperature which I can control. I can grow different palms here in Georgia but recreating the humidity and water for some of those exotic palms would be very costly.

Default I love your collection of palms.

I am a palm tree collector and have been for decades and usually cultivate them from seeds, but I much rather have bought mine from a nursery. I have already purchased 9 of your palm trees and plan to order more in the next months. Thank you again.

Jim

Default Lipstick palm that isn't showing her true color

I recently purchased a lipstick palm (3 ft) from RPT but it doesn't have the red hue to the stems that made it so desirable and me want to add it to my collection. It seems happy and thriving in the large pot on my patio. It has new shoots lots of green color but no red. Same with the flame thrower from RPT-- no sign of that red frond. I'm in Florida just north of the RPT nursery. Similar climate. What do they need? Nutrients? More/less water? sunlight?

Thanks for any advice. I'm willing to do what it takes, knew going in this was a project but starting to think the extra expense for these exotics isn't going to pay off.

Cool lol, I had the same problem earlier

I actually ended up losing two Lipsticks that I bought from a hole in the wall nursery. I also paid alot and thought it would be better buying from a nursery then from this nursery, and I was wrong. Anyways, I bought a 2ft lipstick back in march from here and it was red in the beginning then during summer the red turned red/green, now the red is back and it grew like two feet over the summer and a bunch of small little palms as well. I removed the small palms and was able to make a couple planters with them... long story short I think they turn red and green, I wouldnt fret though...everyone that comes by my home always compliments me on the palm and wants to know where I got it from. I first saw it in Costa Rica and fell in love with it and then I am able to tell them all about my trip to Costa Rica, its a fantastic conversation starter.

During the time I had it I called them and they said just make sure it has fertilizer and put the lipstick palm in a semi shaded area or filtered light area... The more shaded the area the more deep dark green the fronds get. The palms I have in the more sunnier area have a lighter green frond.

Default That happens with most palms or plants

They tend to get a deep darker green when in the shade or filtered light and tend to look yellower or faded in full sunlight.
