Gene's may come into play when choosing what palms to plant, i planted these two SP's from small containers & know exactly from what two trees the seeds came from, our sp in pic # 1 was from seed of what i'm go'in to call a very ordinary sp south of Georgetown,SC but sp #2 was from a very robust tree in Wilmington, NC & plus the tree in pic one is apox. 7 yrs. older. This is one example where parentage rules!

Almost from day one this one showed a more robust-ness about it. On the other hand, in the animal world there are runts in the litters!!!

What's SP? Sago Palm? If so, in the second pic that's not a cycad (Sago Palm), but a palm. Cycads are not palms. :)

If SP means something else, just disregard my message.
