Not sure Bill. I don't recall seeing a palm like this there. 

IIRC it was only there the first or second time I went.. labeled as Dypsis "baby red stem". I may be remembering the sign more than the palm...

Baby Red Stems turned out to be Ambo like palm.

Thanks for this bump Bill, sure seems like what I got as Betefaka.  Seems like these are not fast palms anywhere.  I was hoping to see some Hawaiian giants like some of the other large Dypsis that grow so quickly there.  Maybe we'll see some more updates of some of the palms from this thread now that it's bumped.

The leaves on my biggest two are up to about 9 feet now and starting to accelerate significantly.  Must be over 20 years old!IMG_8862.thumb.JPG.c0be91860a104cf27cb2d

we have betafaka and it is very close to decipiens. ours is splitting as well.

the palm in this thread i would recognize anywhere... we have it as Dypsis sp. ‘honkona’, one with 8ft of trunk (and seeding), and one that is just a crownshaft on a couple rings of trunk (old plant just dwarfed out). beautiful palm that looks a bit like a smaller hovomantsina. the fruit has a distinctive nipple, if i recall correctly. if anyone wants photos i can take some tomorrow. maybe a couple others around, ill have to check.

Hey Mike - I'd love to see those photos, please post them when you can.  And I'll have to make sure to see the palm in person next time I am there.

here you go, apologies it isnt the best lightning for photos right now... all palms grown by Jeff/Su Marcus, in order of size

i forgot we had these two as well:

you can see there is quite a size jump from seedling to crownshaft mode, these two may be competing soon

and then the largest one we have, by a long shot... this one is beefy and seeding consistently, you can see the new (infrafoliar) spadix as well. the fruit are the ‘medium sized  gooey kind’, (i think thats the scientific term for it), and have a distinct nipple

I'd be super-interested to see how that keys out against Dypsis ankaizinensis!
