Re: Tampa Bay/fat plants

Thanks for the reference, Noreen. I just placed an order with Amazon [$85.00, but it's probably the only way I'll keep them straight].

Weather has turned delightful today--after near frost for the last several weeks. Today, there is a warm southern breeze off the Gulf.

One interesting exhibit at the Show yesterday was by a grower of piccabeen palms [Archontophoenix cunninghamiana]. They are nice palms, a lot like the queen palm but with more class, more stateliness. Anyway, the grower told me that he has had them survive brief periods of 27-degree weather in 3-gallon pots. If true, they would likely survive brief periods of 25-degree weather when planted in the ground [roots get much colder in pots than they do in soil]. And that would mean it's worth chancing them in coastal Georgia and South Carolina, as well as all of the Gulf states.

Jim, are you into caudiciforms????? I didn't know that. I'm totally
fascinated by these plants. I had several before I knew what they were. There used
to be just one email list pertaining to these plants, that has now (last year
or so) broken into two......Fat plants, Fat Plant Bonsai. There is an
excellent book, although somewhat expensive, on these plants:
Caudiciform & Pachycaul succulents Gordon D. Rowley.
