I found this baby wilting away, and I couldn't resist bringing her home. Does anyone know what plant this is? Also, should I just let her grow as is, or do I need to give her a hair cut? I'm not sure how to help her with the dry tips.

She is looking a lot better since I repotted her and gave her a good drink.

Thank you Smiling I kind of thought it was some sort of palm, but wasn't 100%.

If anyone has any advice on how to treat the dry ends, that would be great. I do see the small shoots at the base. She was in such rough shape.

I agree, some type of Palm seedlings but I don't have a clue which since I'm not sure what Palms grow in your part of the country.

I forgot to mention, it looks like sunburn to me and the brown leaves will not recover but if kept in a shady location out of direct sun, the plants should eventually produce new green leaves and the brown crispy ones can then be pruned off.

Thank you! I'll keep it where it is, sunny bathroom, but not in direct sun. It seems to be happy hanging out with my orchid and snakie. I'm seeing it starting to give off new growth, so I'll just leave her be and see how things go.

Again, thanks for your help Hurray! Thank You!

That's funky! Never seen sprouts like that for sale, but I am not the most experienced plant shopper in more recent years. Best luck!

I think it may be an Areca palm.

I see them all the time. Tiny pots of tiny palms, some with the seeds still attached. Maybe its a west coast thing? (I'm assuming Oakland CA but there are dozens of others)

I see parlor palm here like that, small seedlings in a pot. I had a small areca palm myself, but not this small. I found some seed husks with that one too. But, mostly parlor palms.

Yes, I see parlor palms often, and once in a while, sprouted coconuts with leaves starting to come out, but never seedlings like those asked about in this discussion. I *hope* there's some regional variability out there in stores, but I have no idea. I think I've only been to plant stores in 6 states at all, but only 2 states in the past 15 yrs, AL & FL. But only the northern-most part of FL where the climate is barely different than where I live except right along the coast.

Yeah! So when I repotted, I freaked out a little when I felt the pods. LOL I thought i was a snail shell that had been buried. It is doing well, now despite the sunburn. I don't have the most recent pick of the new growth, but this is from about 3 wks ago. All three have new growth now. I just gave them a little bit of fertilizer so they are swaying near a sunny window in the bathroom living the dream
