Your article is fantastic and I'm sure it is just the beginning. You didn't mention the genus Livistona and cross-hybridizing of these palms. Also, hyphaene and I'm sure there are others. Look forward to Part 2.

Yes I neglected Livistonas, but don't know a lot about their hybrids.. .seen a few chinensis hybrids and franky they look a lot alike. Don't know anything about hybridization of Hyphaene.. what have you seen?

Hybrid Flora and Fauna are NOVEL Money Spinners at best but will never compare with an intact wild population growing in its intact environment!!!!!!+++:):):)
Although i can't deny these palms are interesting and pretty to look at they remind me of pink piggies and battery hens.

Preserve in the wild state,protect and defend that wild state relentlessly!

Nice article!
Thank you

I've hybridized Hyphaene thebaica with H dichotoma. Unfortunately, I have all females except one male thebaica, so any seeds I get will be hybrids.
