in Sri Lanka it's a common species: Bentinckia nicobarica.

When young, you can enjoy the color of the trunk. later you'll have to fly for that!

A little Bismarckia, the colour has never been any different since I had it gifted to me by Mosen a couple of years ago.

Is this normal, are all young bizzys  purple/red?

Here's the newest leaf on my Areca vestiaria in my sunroom. In the background are Schefflera pueckleri variegata (Tupidanthus calyptratus) and Philodendron warszewiczii.

I've been thinking all day about those of you being impacted by Hurricane Irma this weekend. Some of my favorite places on this planet (and best memories) center on Florida, including, but not limited to: Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden | Miami Beach | Key West | Gainesville | Orlando | University of Florida.

The great thing about gardeners is we're future-oriented, so I hope you all are able to look past this to the regrowth that will certainly follow.

Dypsis species... subtle coloring, but nice both on the newly exposed ring when an old leaf drops, and again on the new spike and the petiole and rachis of the newly opened leaf.

Attractive little palm Tracy, nice color.

Here's one of a Dypsis coursii snapped during a light rain. Such a great leaf arrangement.

Couldn't help it, here's another one. 

Dypsis sp. Metallic. It's the name I acquired it as. This is the first leaf since planting it out, still a bit stunted, but I was surprised at the color.

It has similarities to Dypsis marojejyi which is another very attractive Dypsis.  I love your D coursii, but given the difficulties we have with D marojejyi, I suspect it will be a tough grow here.

It's my understanding that D. marojejyi is now called coursii, and they are not separate species.

Name changes and spell check...both very frustrating!!!  Thanks for the clarification Ando, at least I know why it reminded me of a marojejyi!

Can I still call this one Dypsis crinita for a little longer?

Everyone's first red leafed palm = Chambeyronia.  This one is a hookeri.  Since most photos posted are of full plants or full leaves and everyone has seen them, I liked this leaflet in transition photo.

New leaf detail on potted Areca vestiaria 'Red'/'Maroon'. It came out much more green in the pics than they actually are. They're actually quite red. The most red I've seen yet. This palm sure loves heat! I sure love the palm! :greenthumb::wub:

I know that is a bit of a struggle to see colour here after all of the previous offerings  .... but 

it is my Hyophorbe indica, the old leaf just came off and it is a subtle colour.

it's quite rare to see Hyophorbe indica here on Palmtalk, would you start a "Hyophorbe indica thread", it would be great !

Nice observation and examples of how fast that transition from red to green can occur with hookeri.
