Comments and Curiosities

"I thought you all might like to see some Great habitat photos of some unseen species so i will start with a Dypsis that many would know as Highland redneck as Mike explained (in another topic) this species starts out looking just like a Dypsis lastelliana seedling, in fact it would be very hard to tell these two species apart "as seedlings" if they were ever mixed together, once they are a little older this species Dypsis sp "hovitrendrina" soon starts to produce lots of white tomentum on it's petioles so you then could tell it apart from the true D.lastelliana, i should list some cultivated plants of this species here as well so all can see what these look like from seedlings through to these mature palms in habitat, like many of the dypsis they are constantly changing from a seedling thru to a mature Palms, in there habitat they... Do Not come from high elevation but from "about" 300 to 400 m above sea level, Dypsis lastelliana can be found growing in this same area. So the name Dypsis sp "Highland redneck" is not correct or appropriate for this species..! The name these had been called by the collectors is Dypsis sp. 'hovitrendrina'. This is now a described species - Dypsis nauseosa." (Clayton York, Utopia Palms & Cycads), See photos below. Editing by edric.
