RE: Some more pics

Nice pics, love the ferns wish mine were growing to be that large. The cacti are looking great, missing the O. imbricata. I have never seen a A. parryi look like the one you described as blue parryi. It looks more like some type of americana. The washys are looking great been thinking of getting one but seems like I have enough to worry about right now. So that will have to be a replacement if I loose something.

Great job.

Great pics! I love the ensete, but I have to say that those ferns really are amazing! I love how big they have gotten! They look like they have been grown in the tropics!
Thanks for sharing! Looks like your off to an amazing growing season. Hopefully this heat keeps up for a while!

Thanks Chad

Although less cold hardy than Trachys,the Washys really produce
some amazing growth and they love the heat!

Alex

The T.ferns are one of my favorite plants to watch grow...so unique!
The nice thing about them is that,with enough water they will
grow fast in a cool or hot summer!

The C.brownii is the fastest one I have seen and if it makes
it a few year swill be an absolute monster!

Jim-
Looks great, I love the ferns. I dont think enough people on this forum think about ferns but they add a tropical look and really don't need any winter protection. Mine are turning a little brown in all of this heat with no rain.

Andy

The ones I have are Tree ferns and are not hardy.
Although the D.A's could probably handle 20f -maybe lower.

The larger Cooperi are crispy below 27f.
