Alex, Livistona?

Rich, pinata?

Right genus, well done. But pinnata is probably way too tropical for us. This one suckers, care to guess again?

Lowey, the second one is Iriartea deltoidea. I saw lots of those in Panama in all sizes, including some with 6-8 foot stilt roots.

The clumpers are on my S list so I am not guessing. They do smell good in bloom....right before the stem DIES!

No you are all wrong so far but here's a hint. The vertical skinny multicoloured thing in the middle of the picture is its trunk. Bruce is the one with the round leaf a drymophleus species ? Rich it looks like arenga australasica to me.

1/ its not a fence, its the battens between the outer walls of the house and the ground. (my house is elevated)

2/ its mahogany not red

3/ the trunk in question is in front of the battens

The specimen in the photo is the only one in that entire genus that I have ever seen in cultivation with a clear trunk. Only In habitat photos of older palms. It's also the only trunking specimen of that particular species that I've seen in cultivation. So it's possibly a characteristic of the species (just an observation though) to have a clear trunk when relatively young.

I on my iPhone now, but will upload a complete image from the hotel tonight

Hey, Alex, you wouldn't happen to be talking about Allagoptera (Polyandrococos) caudescens, would you? That was my first thought when I saw the photo for the first time.
