They look great! I'm always surprised that waggies aren't used more as bonsai specimens! They look so great at all ages!
Thanks for sharing!

Thank you Alex! I just purchased a five gallon waggie from jungle music.net - I've been looking for a good size waggie for a year now and haven't found any due to their rarity. So I'm so happy that it's cooing in the mail this week!

I think you'll be happy with your new waggie from jungle music. Thats were I got my bismarkia. I feel that its a little on the small side for a 7 gallon palm though. I was thinking about ording a waggie from them too, they gave me a 1 gallon for free with my last order.

Beautiful palms.....I REALLY love that Waggie.

They are such great palms-why don't I have more!

Nice palms. Now get em in the ground.

RE: New Members of the Family

When I get ground to put them in I will hahahahaha! For now they are in pots making trips from the guest room to the balcony. When I move again I'm definitely going to have yard space. The Waggies are definitely my favorite cold hardy pal,ms out there, because of their stiffer fronds and beautiful appearance. The waggie I ordered from junglemusic.net was a 5 gallon. Phil said that the crown was about 18" tall. I'm most likely going to treat as if it were a child of mine.

Wow, that's about 3 three times the size of the 7 gallon bismarkia I got. Difference in palms I guess. I might have to order one now.

Did you have to pay for the phyto certificate? It cost and extra 35$ cause N.C. requres verification that plants don't have slugs or other crap in them. Shipping cost me more than the palm!

RE: New Members of the Family

I didn't have to pay for a certificate.

Love all your palms! You remind me alot of myself about 10+ years ago when all I had was a balcony. Theres not going to be alot of room for you on your balcony soon! haha! THere was room for me, my partner, and maybe 2 others out there at any given moment, the rest was all plants/ garden, and palms. =o) Thanks for sharing them with us. Keep us updated!
