Neutral palmbob On Mar 28, 2011, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

solitary undergrowth palm from Central America with bifid (unsplit) pinnate leaves. Leaves have prominent, ornamental ridges in them. In Southern California this is one of the harder species to grow, and if one lives in the right microclimate to keep it alive, it rarely holds more than 2-3 leaves at a time. Has a very skinny stem (about 1/4" diameter) and only grows to maybe 6' tall (possibly taller in better climates in cultivation).
