Positive palmbob On Mar 6, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Great looking plant as a seedling- has very shiny, mildly split huge lime green leaves that are nearly circular. As it grow to a larger size a bit less unique, but still an attractive palm. It is a very slow grower, even in the tropics and most palms you see in collections are still seedlings today. Pretty marginal here in So Cal and I have had no luck with this species.
