Looking at this 'cute' young fella, can't help but think how appropriate it's name is. While also known as the Footstool Palm, the former description couldn't be more apt. I like this perfect, rotund and happy face look.

The ground's obviously hard and dry which is not a problem for this adaptable fella. So just watch out for the sharp spines along its petioles.
Now too, I understand and appreciate why palm enthusiasts only grow theirs from tiny seeds and monitor every inch (cm) of its progress. A salute to the 3Ps, passion, patience and persistence. Perhaps, add another P too, the price, as rarer species costs a lot more.
