All palms in ground is at our weekend house, about 30 km east of the city. There is few palms in pots.

Sabal blackburniana (an old irregular name. I picked seed from palms in Zagreb Botanical Garden. I don’t know which the acceptable botanical name for this Sabal, maybe is S. bermudana)

Sabal palmetto

Also I have some young palms and seedlings at my balcony

Yes, super nice, Henoh! :D

I especially like the photos of the C.humilia cerifera WOW!!!! :shock: and the Waggie

Thanks also for the Phoenix comparison pics.
My seedling P.Deglet Noor also have incredibly long leaves (twice as long as my Medjool seedlings).

Nice photos! Are you going to be planting the N. ritchiana "Kashmir" outdoors?

Yes, P. dactylifera 'Medjool' looks much robust than 'Deglet Noor'.

@Cameron, I will plant one N. ritchiana "Kashmir" or “green” form next spring outdoor for test. Robert Lockner from Bad Deutsch-Altenburg zone 7b (Austria link http://exoten.dyndns.org/cgi-bin/archiv ... D6DD589A8E and after winter http://exoten.dyndns.org/cgi-bin/archiv ... 1779944ED3) had some success with overwintering N. ritchiana with passive protection (without artificial heating) so I hope I have chance.

One tough thing about growing these is that the first winter they go into they need to be bone dry
then stay that way all winter and most importantly-they need to be kept dry in spring until it hits the 80s.

They also have very sensitive roots,(soil needs to be warm)so they cannot be planted in spring-
lots of issues but a worthy palm for sure.
Here is the history of one I had.....


You can see by the moldy leaves(last picture) that these are intolerant of moisture on them-

It did start growing in spring(May)but as soon as it received rainfall it rotted out and died.

Jim your second from last pic looks like what my Chamaerops humilis cerifera is doing.
Could it be that ALL waxy-covered palms (blue palms) don't like water on their leaves?

Sad about your nannorhops.
