T. Princeps(pic), Nova and Tesan

earthworm73(WA z8)August 8, 2011

Someone is selling this online as t. princeps for 30 bucks. Just wondering if this looks like a young princeps or what? I don't wanna buy it for 30 bucks if it's not. Also do anyone know of any reliable source selling young t. princeps, nova and/or tesan?

Doesn't look like princep to me. Princeps have white under the fronds, you can check out the 2 pics of mine on my post that is up now. I bought them from North of Florida Palms off of ebay which was recommended by Jim hardy.

That one is Princeps,they usually don't get their color
until the first fan leaves but like Chad said,go through
NOFP(Steve)his are way bigger.
I have bought maybe 5 from him,his palms are at least a year
farther along than the ones from Palmswholesale you have pictured.


I have a bunch of Nova,Tesan seedlings.

Try this link-to NOFP,his are much bigger as pictured.

Here is a link that might be useful: North of Florida palms
