Here is a series of posts for all my fans that have been asking about my palms. I'm doing them individually so I can classify them easier. I got this nice Licuala when I bought the book 'Palm Trees A Story in Photographs' by David Leaser. The author David was at Fairchild signing his book and giving a seedling to everyone who purchased it. It's grown alot since then as you can see it is almost ready to go in the ground!

This is going to start a series of comments on your fan palms. Lets start with this potato chip palm, how long have you had this. I have about a dozen seedlings right now just starting their 2nd leaf. Just wondering how long I have before they look like your beauty.
