At first, I assumed there would be only one stalk popping out that grows the little flowers you see hanging down. Then, a whole bunch of stalks popped out, I have never seen this tree grow like this, and it has also grown much taller in my three years here.
The other tree that I don’t photograph much is about 1/3 shorter and doesn’t yet have the crazy stalks popping out everywhere. Apparently, I am doing something right for these trees as they are incredibly happy with where they live! I hope to not have to pull up baby palm trees after the tree is pruned next month.
