Elaeis guineensis, Jacq. Oil Palm. Sts. stout, 20-30 ft., coarsely and deeply ringed: Lvs. 10-15 ft.; petiole spiny-serrate; lfts. 50-60, linear-lanceolate, acute, the same color above and below. F.S. 14:1492.—From an early stage in growth, this is one of the most ornamental palms. Until it reaches several feet in height, it is a slow grower, consequently one does not see much of it, except in collections. It does best in a warm temperature, although it will thrive in an intermediate house. Seeds are always obtainable from several of the large European houses. It is but little grown as a commercial palm, as young plants do not show their full character. Given same treatment as Areca lutescens, will grow well. This treatment includes night temperature of 65° and plenty of water. Jared G. Smith. N. TAYLOR. CH
