You are probably wise to keep your coin in the old oak chest. In spite of this species obvious allure, it is extremely difficult to succeed with outside of origin. I have fought with mine for more than 5 yrs years; they are maddeningly difficult to grow to perfection, much less transplant across international borders or to succeed with if one does not have a suitable greehouse. I would wager that that Jeff Searle, the good "Wizard of Oz" and the gifted Mr. Marcus would all concur. I have four near flowering-sized, seed-grown plants re-established in California and around 10 in Guatemala and would not recommend them to anyone who is not an exceptional cloud forest palm grower with access to good water and a good array of new generation fungicides.
Pinanga veitchii, while difficult for almost everyone is, indeed, a much more practical challenge for most tropical palm growers. High white Pinanga disticha, IMO, is an even better choice for people who like this look.
