I got this palm for about $10 in December 2010 from Home Depot. They seemed to be selling of lots of stuff cheap in winter, maybe because of the frost?
Either way, I got one and stuck it there, fortunatly its still alive and looking healthy as of April 2011.
Getting buried beneath Mexican Petunias and the bamboo.
Looking good. Its a bit dwarfed by all the Mexican Petunias and the threat of the bamboo but its still a significant size.
Still there plodding along. Definatly growing.
Still there plodding along. I think that its a slow grower, but its hard to judge the rate of groth from the photos.
Considering that I only got this 11 months ago I think its coming on really well, and actually increasing in height nicely.
The label, which I just cut off says Hyophorbe Lagenicaulis.
This is an odd plant really as I had sort of always wanted one as id seen them elsewhere, but when I brought it it was just because it was cheap and I had brought so much stuff around that time I have never really taken the time to consider this plant too much. Most plants I at least Google and such, mmm, maybe a quick Google now.
This palm is starting to grow on me. It survived the winter and has grown 2-3 prongs or branches. I think if you look at the photos they demonstrate growth. I often say 'A Watched Garden Never Grows' which is why I like leaving it for 1-4 months!!!! But the photos help to spot growth and this has definatly grown which when stuff around is dying is a bonus. It has interesting leaves as well, and photographs easily.
