    Unidentified Dypsis with a pink tag. The pink tag denotes that this is a special Dypsis that has been adopted. ;)

    This unknown Dypsis has large plumose leaves. Has the potential to develop a robust trunk. Any IDeas what it could be? :confused:

    Marojejya insignis. Pete said this was a very finicky palm for him. Possibly has a touchy root system, this palm seems to distain repotting. May need to be planted as a smaller palm to avoid root disturbance.

    My initial reaction was this was Dypsis pinnatifrons. Can't recall if its Dypsis nodifera or forficifolia. I was tired and we were discussing the affinities that these species share.

    Possibly D. ampasindavae (PNA 'previously known as' nauseosa, and several other incorrect names). If it has a pink/orange/bronze new leaf, an even greater possibility.

    I sure would like to see a photo of a 100% confirmed D. arenarum and a 100% confirmed D. psammophila.

    Thanks for all the Dypsis Delights.

    Ron,

    Thanks for sharing the gospel. Some good looking palms from some really nice gardens. Thanks!
