Comments and Curiosities

About this Livistona: Seed, from which this palm grows, had been collected from a specimen in the FTBG tagged Livistona sp. Well I've established contact with the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and I got informed that there are/were three specimens tagged as 'Livistona sp.' (located in plot 84a and 84b), collected in Carnavon Range Australia (Livistona nitida?) and along the Mekong river in Thailand. So it is very possible that it is a hybrid between an asian Livistona (speciosa, saribus?) and an australian sp.(nitida?)
