I wanted to get this palm since I laid eyes on them the first time I visited Malaysia. This time, I made sure that I got one and here it is planted in a prime location in the garden. I hope that it will take.

    i think it is ornamental Daturea, and it need wet soils to produce flower .

    Hi Mahmood !!
    I’ve been looking for this palm too. Where did you get it from ??? Any available in bahrain ?

  3. Mahmood says:

    None in Bahrain unfortunately. They have normal palms at the RVBIGS show in Al-Hujair nursery. Tomorrow is the last day so you’d better get over to see what’s left over!

    Hey mahmood, can you help in getting some some plants and trees in Bahrain. I am new and need some addresses and guidance for shopping for my garden.

  5. Mahmood says:

    Hussain there are many garden centres, all of which have been mentioned in this blog before, please take the time to search and read this blog, hopefully it will be beneficial.

    hello, do u know where i can get either a Daturea seeds or plant in the united kingdom, england? id like it for my window garden, do you think it will grow in englands varied climate? or do you think il need to grow it under lights?

  7. Mahmood says:

    I really doubt that it will grow naturally in England. But good luck if you decide to try.

  8. Mahmood says:

    just an update. the palm never took. it died soon after it was planted. I think it was far too affected by the pesticide the quarantine dept drenched it with.

    Mahmood,
    Have you tried another Cyrtostachys renda in your garden since this one died and if so have you any luck with them?
