I’m new on here and to this wonderful world of palms. What started as a tropical plant hobby has turned into a fun and for-filling obsession apexed by a love for graceful palms. Scouring through Facebook market place, I came across this beautiful palm which was sold as a c. Renda but I’m unsure as it seems to lack the vibrant red even at 4ft tall. As I live in a temperate climate i understand it’ll be a challenge to grow too so any tips would be greatly appreciated! It’s pretty warm right now so I have it sitting outside but will definitely bring it in if temperatures drop below 15c (59f.)
This is a palm I have been looking for on a few trips to Vietnam.
Unfortunately it was a wet morning and I had to climb a slippery slope of clay and loose gravel to get to the forest.
Once I was up in the forest on the slippery trail there it was.
Have had the pleasure of seeing this beautiful small palm in habitat over the last few days. Truly spectacular
Off to Kham Duc tomorrow
Love this country

I would be so thankful if anyone could help me identify these two types of palms we picked up, they turned out not to be what we were told and we don’t want to use them until we are really sure what we have here.
It was suggested that the first one might be a Sabal Palm????:
The second one I think is some sort of Chinese fan palm:
Thank you so much for your help. We would be so happy to identify these properly and start planting. Very much appreciated!
In january i go in North vietnam, and this is the very bad month for visiting this area. Wheather very cold ( 8° C) and a lot of rain, hotel have not heating, but the forest is very nice same in bornéo.
Caryota maxima or bacsonensis?
