A palm seen inside the Conservatory last month.
Kindly help in id.
i think tree fern; Cyathea sp.
Thanks for the suggested id.
Could be Cyanthea cooperi? Just a guess.
Quite right to send it to me – of course “that ain’t no palm”, but a tree-fern! Cyathea species do, however, need a close up of the underneath of a pinnule to show hairs, small scales etc. My guess is it might be C. spinulosa, but that is itself a species-pair with a closely related cryptic second species – so the close-up is needed.
Hope its the same plant with one leaf turning yellow. Adding them.
Name suggests Cyathea intermedia.
