Talipot Palm flowering @ SBG


Got news of the Talipot Palm (Corypha umbraculifera) flowering in SBG, so I went down with my friend to check it out :)

After flowering and producing fruits, the palm will finally rest in peace after maybe a year or so?

Lipstick Palm  (Cyrtostachys renda) - the flowers certainly didn't smell nice... they smell like raw veggies :P

I will be back again when it fruits! :D
