could be veitchia arecina? that's a commonly used plant in interior-scapes in nicer hotels

Looks like Ptychosperma elegans, a perennial favorite.

It's too skinny to be an Adonidia, in my opinion. That same species also does well outdoors.

Hard to tell from the photos but I would guess Adonidia--Dave, in a small container with little light, they can resemble a Ptychosperma elegans; have seen scrawny look-a-likes a bunch of times...

I'd vote Ptychosperma elegans. Based on the little "bite" off the ends of the leaflets.

Veitchia gets my vote as well!

How well do Adonidia do inside long term?

I had an Adonidia inside for a few years but it got too big. They're great indoor plants.

The lighting isn't doing the identification any favors, but I have a feeling that it's an Adonidia. There are a bunch at USF in the student center subject to 65 degrees year-round that look about the same.

Google images is a wonderful thing: pelican hill lobby palms

Unfortunately, none of the images are very high resolution, but I may have to change my vote... :mrlooney:

Indoors, Adonidia stretches out and has skinnier trunks due to the lighting.

Thanks for that picture. I'm now very sure that they're Adonidia.

I have never seen these for sale anywhere. I would love one inside if I could find one decent size.

Seeing that 2nd picture makes me vote Adonidia too.

Btw, my sister in law used to work at this hotel. Fantastic facilities, hospitality and location. If you have a chance to stay there, you will love it

Bump. These look like super old indoor Adonidias. Not much natural light in here.
