    Hei,
    I have bought this palm (?) for around 8 months ago in IKEA. It was marked as "Palm Mix." Since then it has grown from a tiny plant of 15 cm to a nice bushy plant of 40-50 cm and continues to grow very quickly. It has been repotted twice and it seems I have to do it again, as roots start sticking out from the pot bottom.
    Does anyone know what this plant can be and how big it can get?
    Thanks!

    They look like young specimens of Hyophorbe verschaffeltii, Spindle Palm.

    Mistery is unveiled :)

    Thanks!
    It does look like one. And now I see why it needs bigger pots so quickly :)
