John in Andalucia

That famous line made famous by Rolf Harris, is the title to a new quiz. For germinating "palm-nuts" and everyone growing seedlings, the aim is to post an 'emerging' seedling photo but ONLY after you identify correctly, the current photo. Only the person who guesses correctly, can post the next seedling photo, and MUST respond to their post ONLY when the right answer is given. NOTE: You might know the answer, but if you've no plans to add a photo please don't post. Take it away George.. :mrlooney:

It's slow

Likes good drainage, especially when small

The person posting the picture only responds after the right answer appears, so the right answer will be the post directly before. If someone then adds an incorrect reply after the right answer has already been given (i.e. before you get a chance to reply) then yes, you need to mention who was right.

I can't guess at the moment, so I'll ask is it pinnate or palmate?

It's pinnate

very slow, and very beautiful when it grows a little.

Listed in the CITES as endangered.

Would it be cheating for me to say Matt? Well I'll let some others have a guess, I don't have a good seedling photo yet.

No Nick, these seeds are about 1-1/2" in diameter. And supposedly very poisonous. There's a few clues.

Matt, go ahead and guess if you want. Just have your seedling pic ready if you dare!!!!! :mrlooney:
