Dypsis I.D. - Need Help

11 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hey y'all.  I've been growing these things for about 4 years now from germinated seed.  They're finally starting to show some character.  They're supposed to be Dypsis oropedionis but I have my doubts.  I've never grown D. oropedionis so maybe they are but they remind me of something else.  I'll hold off on guessing out loud for now.  Can anyone help me out with some I.D.eas?  Ohhhhhh I literally just made that up on the spot.  I'm back baby!

Matty,

My feeble brain seems to want to say it's ampasindavae. But I also have some "hankona" that have the same overall look. Welcome back..

No clue as to the name of your palm, but love your sense of humor!

Is there a heel? I don't think it's oropedonis. They ususally look like thin orange crush that start going pinnate..

Don't listen to him; he doesn't know what he's talking about.

They look familiar like one of the many things that I have had that died years ago but can't quite place it.  Long shot, Dypsis rivularis maybe?  Oro's are usually very dark green with small terminal leaflets and less petiole.

I'm with Rich on this. Looks more like rivularis than oropedionis.
