Nick's right, it's a Ravenea hybrid. Wanna take a guess at the species Nick?

Matt, care to share which hybrid that was? For the record I have never grown a Ravanea! No harm, no foul!

Ok Nick, your slackin'...I'll get this game going.

Naaa-aaame that palm!

OK, for some closure to my seedling it's R. glauca x R. hildebrandii. R. glauca is the mother/seed plant. These seeds came from Gary Levine shortly after the fires happened and he didn't have time to mess with them. BS Man and I are germinating a couple of them and I've given one back to Gary now so he can grow his baby up. Thanks Gary.

I couldn't think of a Livistona that is that deeply cut that's not L. decora.

Is it L. mariae? Just a wild guess.

Hey, you just gave it away and didn't even hide it with the cough.

Was wispy a clue? I didn't get it.

Ok I'll go.

Well that explains it....The Wispy Palm!!!

OK, so Washy or Pritchy dosen't really narrow it down much William. I need a specific guess, Genus & species, on this one.

Surely your not growing a common, for out there, W. robusta? So I am gonna guess Pritchardia thurstonii
