Aquatic?

No, I don't think so. I think a better name is a list of palms that will take flooding.

Aquatic is wholly different.

There could have been some more on that list. Livistona benthamii and L. rigida grow standing in water. (Also out of water.)

Dave hit the nail on the head. Though an interesting read, I agree that most of those palms on the list can't take sustained soaking or have to have a certain portion of their faculties above the water line. When I think aquatic, I don't think Copernicia alba...

Oddly enough, in habitat many Copernicia live in seasonal flood plains. Many individuals can and do live with submerged rootballs for extended eriods of time... Check out these albas!!! :greenthumb:

Certainly not aquatic as fish, but maybe along the lines of mudskippers? :hmm:

Bill, I have my Miraguamas and a Bismarckia sitting in 10" of water the whole summer with tadpoles and the occasional mosquito larvae(tadpole food), but I wouldn't say either of these palms are "aquatic"... Kiddie pools really save on watering plus they add makeshift habitat for the aforementioned.

GREAT IDEA on the kiddie pools - I really need to do something like this :) (Those pools are super cheap, too!)
