    I agree. The leaf shape and color pattern are consistent with Duke of Windsor. Beautiful plant!

    After the theme started by croton.net - http://www.palmpedia.net/forum/showthread.php?2954-Found-on-my-travels.... ,
    I’ve got a bit confused as I see the variety above is different from Marigold (Yellow Duke of Windsor). This variety has larger leaves, local name in Indonesia is “King Kobra”.

    Picture 1 – a young plant, Pic 2 - a mature plant with specific round leaf base (my fingers for scale).

    :confused:
