Palm ID...Sabal Causiarum?


Merlyn

Recommended Posts

So I thought I had planted an Acoelorrhaphe Wrightii "Cerifera" over on the East side of the yard, but it's definitely not an Everglades Palm!  I had bought a couple of them from TCHP a while back, and I have also bought Sabal Mauritiiformis and Causiarum.  It's definitely not a Mauritiiformis.  In my master spreadsheet I have marked down that one Causiarum died, but my best guess is that I mislabeled the pots of Wrightii and Causiarum...and the one that died was the Wrightii.  So could this be a Causiarum?

I remember that my young S. causiarum had very heavy textured leaves.

Leaves of quite juvenile causiarum specimens have rather a deltoid than round outline. But not sure whether your plant has already grown beyond this stage.

This is one of my S. causiarum that didn' t grew well because of not optimal soil conditions...

Alberto, leaf shape looks quite right for causiarum but stem's girth is seemingly less than normal. How old is your specimen and what do you mean by not optimal soil conditions?

It' s all explained in this post were you can see a fat trunking sibbling of this dwarf.
