Positive palmbob On Feb 2, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Until mature, this plant looks a lot like Butia capitata... tends to be more upright in habit (less arch to leaves) and slower and smaller overall. From Paraguay and surrounding countries. Very drought tolerant palm but prone to rot (very) if watered from overhead... best to water this one with a hose or use drip irrigation
