    • COMING PALMTALK CHANGES - PLEASE READ   02/14/2017

      In the coming week (probably beginning this weekend), several major changes will be occurring with PalmTalk. The result will be short periods of complete closure, or of limited viewing (that is, no posting - but viewing still possible). These changes are major and unexpected complications are always a possibility. So, please be patient and bear with us. For those interested, the first phase will be a migration of the entire site to a new more powerful server. After this is completed, a major upgrade to the newest version of the forum software will then be attempted. It is hoped that these improvements, along with some new configurations of various parameters made possible with the new server capabilities, will result in an elimination of some error messages and glitches which have been plaguing various tasks and viewing recently. As with any upgrade there will probably be some new and/or changed features, or ways of viewing and/or using the forum. I anticipate these will be minor, and as always if there is anything confusing or needing explanation, we will set up a topic to discuss them.

Which Areca is this?

8 posts in this topic

I picked up these seeds, here in Cronulla, from under a medium sized, to large, thick clump of what I think was an Areca something?

They took about 6 months to shoot. Top of leaf green and silver under. What is it likley to be?

Man you have got no idea just how good you are. As a coincidence perhaps that link that you included to your reply to 'pacsoa'

showed two pictures, the second one was submitted by Ian Edwards, and it was from under that very clump that I got the seeds.

Arenga engleri YOU ARE RIGHT. Respect! :)

Good call Bill, I new it wasn't Areca and thought maybe is was something from South America. The gemination wasn't the same and pics of

Arenga seeds I could find were more rounded. The only Arenga I have is hookeriana.

The shape of the seed is similar to Wallichia oblongifolia (densiflora).

Helo, this seedling is from genus wallichia.

See my wallichia disticha seedlings.
