I planted this hybrid Coccothrinax in February 2018 and everything looked normal. There was a small plant in the pot with it which was from a second seedling of the same plant, so i was getting 2 for 1 I thought. Well fast forward and the main plant kept leaning to the side. Attempts to straighten it were unsuccessful because it was solid, not flopping over. I thought I was going to lose the plant, and finally decided to prop it on a decorative rock once it was essentially horizontal. I finally can see what was making it lean to the side, it was growing a doinker which was pushing it the main trunk off to the side. It's very strange. I ended up looking up to see what species of Coccothrinax clump and see that pumila and fageldei are thought to clump. The plant was thought to be a hybrid of Coccothrinax borhidiana with another unknown species. While I've seen plenty of doinkers on Dypsis species, this was a new one on me. Anyone else seen anything like this with a Coccothrinax?
I have three (3) Butia's that were all labeled as Capitata, but chose all different looking ones to see if one produced a better looking Mule over the others. Fast forward to now and 2 of the 3 have now flowered and they are drastically different. Could one of these be "Odorata"? The Butia palm shown in full pushed the bright maroon flower and will follow up with a picture of the other Butia later.
Any information is much appreciated...

I picked up one of these last year, it's a great looking palm. I'm trying to get a gauge for what this will eventually become. I'm hoping some folks have this growing; it's been around a while. I saw the pictures from the Huntington website, but I thought I ought to ask here too. I was going to plant this near my Brahea decumbens, but I think it will be a bit too close.
Thanks for sharing!
I am struggling to decide if this is a Brahea aculeata or a Livistona decora. It’s been in a pot for years and I’m deciding if I should buy it. My thoughts on id are based on undivided leaf bases, fine downward pointing petiole spines and glossy green deeply divided costapalmate leaves. Any thoughts will be appreciated.

I’m currently living in the UK, but will be emigrating to Australia within the next 2-3 months.
I’m looking for pure seeds of Allagoptera, Jubaeopsis, Lytocaryum, Parajubaea sunkha, Parajubaea cocoides, and hybrid seeds (in any combination) of Allagoptera, Butia, Jubaea, Jubaeopsis, Lytocaryum, Parajubaea, and Syagrus to take with me, or contacts in Australia who have mature specimens of the above.
Appreciate most palm enthusiasts who produce F1 hybrids often won’t offer seeds as it makes more sense to sell the seedlings/plants, but I’m also open to F2’s, F3’s etc.
