Positive, so far. My 3 gallon with a stem diameter of less than one inch just survived a 30 degree frost. It has been getting under 38(F) about every night for three weeks. The leaves are a bit yellow, but no browning.

Atrractive irregularly pinnate clumping palm from Madagascar. Grown for its ornamental petioles: yellowish with deep red-brown stripes up them. Also has nice looking pale yellow mottled crownshafts. Not common in cultivation and ultimate cold hardiness not known yet. not sure if anyone is trying this in California or Florida.
