Hi, I bought this 4"foliage at the home Depot; I'm thinking possibly it's an areca palm? Or some type of palm? Any ideas?
And, if you know ... How fast should it grow?
Thanks so much! Nikki

In a 4 inch pot, my thought would be Parlor Palm (Chamaedora elegans)

Not "a" palm, but a collection of very young seedlings.

Sorry I originally posted in the wrong forum, and thanks so much for the replies! Am I correct in thinking that parlor palm is very slow growing, so will not likely need to pot up for a while? With love,
Nikki

Slow-growing entities, but it's much easier to separate babies when smaller. If left that close together, they will have trouble growing normally and you will have a tough time inspecting for pests & removing the stumps of older leaves as they fade away.

I've always repotted mine (vs. potting-up.)

Your plant is fine the way it is - no need to repot. Its a preferance thing. You bourght it because you liked the way it looks so don't separate the seedlings if you don't want to.
