    I recently bought 3 Trachycarpus Fortunei germinated seedlings from an EBay seller in Italy. They came with an extra seedling which does not resemble the other 3. Can any one identify this please? I have attached a photo of the mystery palm (taller & thinner) alongside the wider leaved Trachycarpus Fortunei. Ignore the label on the mystery plant. Thanks.

    I reckon @George & @greatnorthernexotic might be able to help out. They’ve both got more palms in their gardens than I have 😀

    Hi, I’d be struggling with this one unfortunately. It could potentially be a fortunei too which has just grown differently, that’s probably the most likely option but I couldn’t say 100% at this stage.

    Thank you George, it does seem the most likely. I suppose time will tell if you are right.
