Comments and Curiosities

Dypsis "Big Red." It came by way of Mardy Darian, so no telling exactly what it is. But it is certainly related to Dypsis lastelliana, and starting to get the color after which its name came from. Up unitil now, it was almost a black fuzzed crownshaft - notably different than a "normal" "Red Neck." And it still is only the newly exposed area that has for the first time exhibited this color. The rest of the crownshaft is still almost black. (Dean Ouer)
