    I have had very good luck once these get to 3 gal size in So Cal. Thru a little experimentation, I found these like more light than most people give them. On the coast, they will probably take full sun once acclimated, and part day/morning sun inland.

    It's gotta be one of the slower than average palms though. Even in Hawaii, they aren't any speed demon. However, like most of these guys, once they get some size, they begin to move right along.

    pic 4, almost doubling again in girth = 7 months later (one spring/summer)

    Not until after I feature it on the Main Page for a few months. :) Remember, once something's on the internet, it's there for life. Do you have any nude pics out there?
