Palm ID Request

Recommended Posts

StluciaMike

Hello all!

I planted these a few years ago at our vacation home and over time the labels have worn away to nothing.  For the life of me I cannot remember what they are.  Photos below, any help would be much appreciated :)

Palm 1

Palm 3-

I am thinking this may be a Dypsis Pembana or cabadae?

Matt, 

Thanks for the response, after researching what you suggested it certainly does seem to be a likely candidate for Sp. Mayotte, but I also saw all the mystery and around the classification of Sp. Mayotte as well.  One thing I know for sure is that I have never specifically purchased an Sp. Mayotte but about 3 years ago I purchased seedlings on ebay listed only as "Comoro Island Palms" which has led me to have the same Cabadae / Pembana and Mayotte mystery that other people have.

Palm 1 looks like Archontophoenix cunninghamiana to me:

Archontophoenix cunninghamiana looks like it could be as well, however looking through all my orders for the past 4 years I have never ordered a Archontophoenix cunninghamiana, so it would be a complete mystery how it ended up there :lol:

Mike, 

Could palm 1 be a Chambeyronia?

Posting your list of palms that you purchased will narrow down the options, that would be wise.

Great idea! Looking at back at my orders this is what I ordered in the time frame.

Ravenala homkondambo seeds
Acoelorrhaphe wrightii seeds
Dypsis lanceolata seeds

Ptychosperma salomonense seedlings
Zombia antillarum seedlings
Cryosophila stauracantha seedlings
Dypsis Pembana seedlings

#1 looks a lot like my Pembana, but it's dark and raining right now, so i can't do an easy comparison.  At that size I'd think it would have already started clustering though, so that might not be it.

In one of the pics you can see a few “stitches” on the underside of the leaflets of palm #1. I don’t believe D. Pembanas have that. At least mine doesn’t.  So that might exclude that.

Palm #3 does look like D. Cabadae to me. Too much red for Pembana.

Looks like an archontophoenix to me as well. (Although in one of your pictures, the crownshaft looks silver/gray). 

Here's a pick of my A. cunninghamiana

I'd revise my earlier statement, I think palm #2 is the Pembana.  Here's photos of mine this morning, bought from MB Palms last fall.  White tomentum on the trunk, strong midrib on the leaflets, it looks pretty close!
