With social media constantly making personality quizzes for everything (What cat are you? Which cast member of How I Met Your Mother are you?), I began to feel left out. As a plant enthusiast, I was waiting for BuzzFeed to create a “which palm are you?” quiz. So instead of sitting and hoping, I decided to make one of my own — plus give horticultural tips to ensure the palms’ success.
So let’s go: Simply pick the descriptor that best suits you (friendly, romantic, rule-breaker, catty, shy, mellow, quirky), find your palm and learn how to take care of it.Mr. Nice Guy: Roystonea regia R. regia
Now that you have identified your palm soulmate, go out and plant one. Treasure it, spoil it and enjoy the company of your palm kindred spirit.
