    How happy was I yesterday when I saw my newly planted Ptychococcus paradoxus throwing out a new spear with blush coloring on it? I didn't know that this was one of the great characteristics of this beautiful palm. At some point, I'll have to get some trunk detail pics. CAM00295.jpg CAM00296.jpg CAM00297.jpg CAM00298.jpg

    As I am unfamiliar with that palm, I didn't know they had such a nice new leaf either. Overall, that is one beautiful palm - and grown well too. I would enjoy some trunk detail if you get a chance.
