Sorry for all the shadowing on the's difficult to take a clear pic in the Botanical Building because of the sun shining through the wooden laths.

Thanks! Sometimes it's a little frustrating taking photos in the Botanical Building...however, it's just a big lath house. The sun does need to shine on the plants to make them grow. : > )

Lovely palm. Believe this one does like some shade, doesn't it?

Yes, it is an understory palm. Here is must be grown in mostly shade or it would fry in the sun.
