Hi All,

Another ID would be great.

Assuming options will be Archontophoenix cunninghamiana, Ptychosperma elegans or Syagrus romanzoffiana as these are all within 100m. Depending on what it is will determine if it's going in the bin.

Syagrus is the only one that will produce lots of strap leaves. The other two will be at least bifid. I'm not convinced it might not be something else, though. Queen seedlings are usually more tall, thin and straggly. The leaflets look a little too broad on this one. I'd certainly keep it—Jubilee is coming up!

I read a test once about how to tell a valuable plant in your garden vs a weed. Your give it a gentle tug and if it comes out and snaps it was a valuable plant, but if it is difficult to remove it is a weed. In much the same vein, you probably have a cocos palm headed for the compost heap.  What you have there is a weed.  :-)

It is not dead, it is just senescence.

Yes cocos are environmental weed and government recommends removing them all. Plus they injury native bats.
