For sale are 8 4" pots of an unknown Ptychosperma I received seeds for from Australia in 2019. I am sure these palms are Ptychosperma but I am unsure which species they are. They have stayed fairly small and grow well although not super fast. They are faster and more robust than P. elegans, which I have and have germinated so I'm sure they aren't that species. According to Palmpedia, there are 22 species of Ptchosperma:

I posted photos of these four seedlings a couple months but I'm still not sure what I have. I got seeds of these palms from Australia back in 2019 and the seller IDed them as "Ptychosperma unknown species" with large leaves and large seeds. When I say "large seeds" I do it with Ptychospermas in mind. I can't remember exactly what the seeds looked like except they were elongated and approx. 3/4" to 1" long and 1/3" to 1/2" wide. One PTer suggested they might be Veitchias. My seeds source seemed knowledgable enough to tell the difference between Ptychospermas and Veitchias, but who can say if he was? I took photos of the largest palm. Notice it has black speckling and a lot of tomentum but is that a shared trait of Ptychos and Veitchias? Seedlings are robust and fast growing. They sailed through my winter carefree and without protection.
Ptychosperma or Veitchia?
I gave Phil at Jungle Music (and UPS ) a chunk of my stimulus check.
C. Benzii, C. Plumosa, and another Kentia that def needs to be repotted and was way bigger than Phil told me over the phone.
Pretty sure my apartment manager is gonna send me a nastygram email, and now I really need to get off my culo and repot some things so I can give them away.
