This is one (looks like two) palm that has defied the odds and also endure the adverse conditions to grow in a mound of dirt, which is a road divider, in front of Kelana Jaya LRT station.
Have been observing it on and off during my daily transit and wondered if it ever gets to grow to maturity considering the very tight spot it has found itself in, corseted by exposed cables, stones and concrete. Guess it's a careless toss of a couple of seeds out of the car window after consuming the fruit and they fatefully landed at this particular terra firma beside a monsoon drain.
Despite consistently blanketed by exhaust fumes spewing from non-strop traffic plying this route, it is looking none the worse for wear, most importantly had not darkened its overall outlook...
