Pritchardias with appendage at hastula


Tracy

Recommended Posts

I have posted this palm more than once, which was acquired as Pritchardia flynnii.  Heavy light brown scales on under sides of the leaves and as it has matured it has developed this appendage at the base of the hastula.  After the new leaf opens, the appendage remains present.  Any other species of Pritchardia that do this?  If this is not Pritchardia flynnii and flynnii doesn't do this, I'm hoping it will lead me to the correct id.  It does appear to be a smaller Pritchardia, as I have had this in the ground for about 8 years and got it a couple of years prior to that and tops of new leaves are just under 6' tall now when they open.

Can't help with this particular species, but Pritchardia ID in California seems to be a complete mess.  I have purchased P. minor from three vendors, and the three palms don't even resemble one another.  :indifferent:

Tell me about it Darold. I have three “Martii” that I’m not confident any are the real McCoy.  One was sold to me from a private grower with no backstory to seed or procurement so that’s a long shot. But the other two were procured from Floribunda and then sold to me after a year or so. They look good but don’t check every box. This surprises me cuz I’ve heard Jeff is really good at ID’ing plants. Oh well…they are all growing great in different locations with different sun exposures. Could be worse….
