Help; Identifying a small royal or a small adonidia palm


Palmdude129

Recommended Posts

So a few months ago I bought five Royal palms in 5 gal containers from a guy on craigslist. They are still small and I am starting to think they are Adonidia palms instead of Royals. I have been told Adonidia palms are also called "mini Royals", but I don't know, I am skeptical. I have been trying to look online for small Royals and can't find any of my size. Any tips, photos or advice on this one? Thanks guys.

I've seen that post on Craigslist and they are indeed Adonidia. Royals have thin leaves and grow taller at that age.

You have? I been waiting for its fronds to get thin and tall like a Royal but it ain't happein:(.  I thought I scored on some Royals, I guess not. I will post a photo tomorrow just so you guys can confirm my suspicion. Thanks

No such thing as a "small" royal. In the future, don't let someone get away with using common names for plants. If they don't specify, ask them to give you the Latin name (binomial) for the plant. If they won't, they are suspect. If they can't, they are idiots. In either case, walk away and save your money.

Welcome to PalmTalk. Hope you stay a while.

I appreciate your input but I have to disagree. If you don't know a trees latin name doesn't make you an idiot.  I'll take the adonidias or any other palm trees because I have a palm obession.
