Anything to win in this competition ? :P

Maybe it's blooming part of a palm ( don't know the name :( ) ?

Ok, to avoid being misunderstood: :P

(1) Which part of a palm is taken on the photo?

(2) Which genus does that palm belong to?

(3) And to which species of that genus?

It's a bad picture of the detail of the top of the third leave your Sabinaria magnifica.

I won 1/2/3, I WON!

And the answer is …: It is NOT a BAD picture. :rant:

The correct answer would be: It is an EXCELLENT MAGNIFICATION of the detail … etc. :mrlooney:

Okay, Missi, only for you. :innocent:

As we have already deep night here in EU I had to use a flash: #1 the glossy green surface of the first two leaves; #2 their silvery underside; #3 close up of the tip of the 3rd leaf.

Do you mean the character saying "Excellent"? That is Mr. Burns from The Simpsons cartoon. Certainly a monster!

Oh, thank you for the ID, luckily I haven’t met him yet … :sick:  At first I believed it might be a kind of a Dutch cheese monster which has haunted the palm ( @Kai) ?

No, that’s not a monster, I guess it’s a friendly nice giraffe ^_^ ( @PalmTreeDude is my ID ok?) …

No Dutch cheese monster Pal. ID has been given. A kind of evil character and nuclear power plant owner who, when things are going his way (which was my intended referrence), rubs evilish his hands together and says "excellent"...

Growth of your Sabinaria is simply...excellent...

"Smithers, don't release the hounds yet"

Oh, I’m sooo relieved … *sigh* ^_^

But what about your Sabinaria? Did you repot it too? And no setback I hope? :huh:

Yes Pal, I repotted it and I'm glad I did. Comparing it with your Sabinaria, I'm sure it has had a setback. No above-ground deterioration though, and it's growing again. I will post a picture asap.
