Dew's Palm Gallery

Not that PDA thing. Palm here refers to a kind of plant. My interest in this species started from Kaset Fair 2007, when I walked around and saw a few cute ones. I bought back some of them. They were so small and seemed never grow up at all. Some took months before showing a new leaf. I felt like a challenge to take care of them. So I acquired more from Chatujak market. Now the whole place are occupied by all sorts form EU, Cuba, Brazil, AUS etc. Below are some pictures of them. Among my favorites are the Chamaerops, Butia, Bismark and date palm.

There are a few things to learn in order to plant palms successfully. Most important is to know their habitats. Many species require full sun, though some are understory types so they enjoy shaded area. Paurotis loves abundant of water, while Blue Hasper palm does not. Planting a palm tree in wrong environment may prove fatal. Fortunately, cold hardiness is not an issue for tropical region like Thailand.
