    I brought this palm with me from the old place. It lay neglected for 2 yrs in a 3 gal. I planted it last fall & it appears to be getting happy now. I thought it was another oliviformis but Ray came by & thought it looked like pyriformis. I have no recollection of buying this palm so who knows, plant horder problems.

    I'm gonna have to disagree with Ray. It looks like a K. oliviformis to me.

    I concur with Dean. I too, think it is K. oliviformis. I'm fairly certain you would remember acquiring K. pyriformis due to its general lack of availability and higher price. Any vendor would have clearly pointed out the differences. That (K. oliviformis) will be a great palm for your property Bren.

    I have one already and have been really pleased with its performance so far. I could easily enjoy another.

    Bren,
    That is a very well grown K. oliviformis. As nice as any I have seen.
