Which of the following species tiller?

D. cabadae

D. pembana

D. sp. "Mayotte" (is this even a different species, or is it one of the above?).

Just trying to sort out what I have.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Matty B. The first two species do not seem to be tillering, but what I grew from seed as sp. "Mayotte" is definitely tillering. I just potted it up from 3 gal to 15 gal and it looks generally like the other two except for the tillering. I actually have two. One does not seem to be quite as tillering, and it also spit out a second stem. The very tillering one is a single so far.

Thanks Ed. So far the pembanas and the cabadae don't seem to be big enough to start clustering. Only one gallons. The only one so far to split was the one "Mayotte," and that was at about the 3 gal stage. By contrast my lanceolata clustered much sooner and definitely more profusely.

Mayotte discussions have been held a few times before on zee board of doom. I think the upshot was there is no individual mayotte species as such, but a form of lanceolata or cabadae (can't recall which) that hails from the island of Mayotte. If you have a tillering palm, then it is likely to be something else entirely, but perhaps from the Mayotte Island (s).

Any chance of some photos of said palms ?..

The pembana types do grow sideways a bit sometimes, but they dont tiller from what i've seen

Perhaps it is not tillering so much as growing laterally, but there does seem to be a definite downward tendency.
