Some of you may remember the thread this was in, but I'm ready to give it up. I almost took it apart, but its more useful as is..

You can now get your giant palm purchase home and not worry about snapping its "neck". It worked great getting it home. The palm dried and died later, but that was a different story. :angry:

Muck soil over a light main mix tricked into thinking ALL the soil was that way. It dried out.

Nevermind the fact that it was an Orania that came out of a hot and humid greenhouse into a cool coastal climate. Nevermind that!!!!!!! I said there's nothing to see here people. Go home and be with your families!

I'm glad to see you're getting rid of that monstrosity. Next time you have to transport a large palm, I've got 3 words for you: Horizontal.

Bill, my suggestion would be to strap a Guy Fawkes to it on Bonfire night.

Len, is what Bill is saying true ? huh.gif Or could it be that he is trying to justify not getting rid of the now infamous "palmscrapertransportation device" eons ago ? unsure.gif

I can confirm something was tortured on that device. I witnessed it. Subject is now dead.

I've seen in person both the devise, and the palm that was grown in the closet that was tortured on the devise. At first I thought both were photo-shopped, but in later seeing them in person they are confirmed real entities. I believe the devise is a bargain for free because it has duo purposes; it can transport future closet grown palms, or you can attach a sail, turn it on its side and use it as a flotation devise. Both purposes can be used with similar great success.

What did you do Bill? Make a clothes hanger out of it? Make a directional sign for navigating the weed forest?
