There are no such things as facts of science. Science is only provisional at best.

Yes, Miami is proned to cold spells, but not enough for it to become subtropical, as defined by Wladimir Koppen.

Wrong. It IS subtropical. Climate wise AND zone wise.

It is SUBTROPICAL both in climate and zone.


This is NOT tAT ALL CONTROVERSIAL AMONG EXPERIENCED GARDENERS.

Koppen was an out of touch with reality scientist. Science has flaws. Science also can be very wrong . In this case he was one man, and he was WRONG.

He had no experience living there.

jack fisher, paul nawrocki and all the other expereinced members of the international palm society ALL say it is SUBTROPICAL. THAT FORUM IS A collection of ALL THE VERY BEST PALM GROWERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD.


THEY KNOW- Koppen was WRONMG. He had no expereince gardening in Miami

The tan you get in Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Belize, etc. ( places at tropical latitudes) is far superior to Miami. It's deeper, richer and is tatooed on you for a long time and several layers of skin. You cannot "shave it off" like in Miami.

Miami is AVERAGE in looks, ability to get a tropical caliber tint to your skin, and just has that PLAIN JANE North American temperate climate look.


Miami people are just jealous of the true tropics. REALITY has demonstrated that Miami does not have a tropical climate , nor is it a truly tropical place. The zone where Puerto Rico exists is DIFFERENT.


When you are in Puerto Rico , Hawaii, Belize , you KNOW you are somehwere special. You KNOW you are in a different zone. A zone where tropical vegetation grows NATURALLY everywhere and thrives. A zone where the sun is extremely strong.

I have WASTED money in Miami for years. It is simply not good enough for me anymore. I want TROPICAL.

When you start bashing a city and calling people dorks your credibility goes down to nil and you are just seen as an egotistical fool who knows nothing. People are laughing at you, keep on with more ridiculous statements I need more laughs today.

lmao, ok so who's fault is THAT? lol and smdh. Go to Hawaii then.

so, my question is when will 'pweople' realize that not many really care about the technicalities of classification re: climate/zone/whatever. Most pweople simply want to visit or live in a place that 'feels' kinda tropical-ish, myself included, cause it's pleasant and nice... couldn't care less whether it's tropical, subtropical, zone, climate, or whatever. it's the closest thing to 'tropical' we can get on America's mainland, and that's what i like about it.

The temperature says 32 degrees ! Look at those TROPICAL WANNABE PRETENDERS. They only make it WORSE by bundling up. They are blatantly advertising and ADMITTING they are NOT the tropics by doing this. Those poeple should be USED to 40 degree and lower weather by now. What dorks.
