I had no clue about palms, so I did a google search for you. http://www.nizwa.net/agr/dates/dates/palm/datepalm2.html Hope this helps! LMK ~ Suzi :)

ah - i knew it. and to think that the fishtail palm is monocarpic; it dies after it flower. flowering is the only way to coax the production of seed. great... i just have to find some offshoots... anyone have any?

The Tropicals Forum may be your best bet for offshoots of tropical palms. I thought for sure there would be one, looked, yep... Good Luck! ~ Suzi :)
