Just recently split up 3 majesty’s from same pot into their own pots. I was as easy as I could be on the roots..
all new soil and parked in front of a large window. 3 days later and they are looking a darker green, the fronds are droopy and all seem to be twisting. Is this just classic shock or did i kill these things?
Hello from London. I had a good clearout of my greenhouse this week and have some plants which I don't have ID's for. Hope some of you can help.
This one has a label in it saying 'Sabal texana' which I'm not sure is even a recognised species. I've had a look and S. texensis is described as having green leaves but this has very grey/glaucous leaves even at a young age. It could be plain old Sabal minor I guess but perhaps it could be a S. brazoria? Probably too early to tell as I know with Sabals it's the flowers that really help with identification. I think that's a long way off though!!

What is this palm I picked up today?
It was poorly taken care of and in the corner, with mealybug - so currently quarantined and being treated - but the nursery couldn't identify it and neither can I.
The fronds are massive, with very little 'frond stem' (if that makes sense) and the leaves are very thin and long.
Thank you in advance!
I'm a newbie in IPS and the palm world and I still have a lot of trouble distinguishing them. I'd appreciate if anyone can help me pinpoint this palm.
The fronds are massive, at least 5 feet across. They are definitely much larger than other fan palms in this area like Washingtonia robusta. I think it may be some kind of Pritchardia like beccariana/Loulou fan /Fiji fan ? Please let me know if I can add any more specific photos or details.
I am close to Miami, so this is Zone 10b. Thank you!
Once I ID this palm I will post it onto my instagram: @palms_n_critters. Follow me if you love palms and nature!
I've recently ordered Butia Capitata (Pindo Palm) seeds online, and what I received clearly weren't Butia Capitata seeds. I already got a refund from the seller, but now I'm wondering what palm are these from. If someone could help me identify it, maybe I could find a use for it.
