I have had these three palms for about four months and they are fast. I have basically no experience with growing fox-tails so I am not entirely certain what stages they go onto be an adult... Please give me you feedback as to whether these look to be Foxy ladies or just Fox-tails. Thanks!

When I got them they had single plane leaves. The newest set of leaves is showing more plumosity(is that a word?). I hope I didn't get ripped off...

Sad. But true. Or at least maliciously mislead. :winkie:

Does buying a 15 gal Cheesmanii for $80 and then later that day taking it out of the pot and finding that it was a 5 gal size with no roots count, after it all fell apart in my hands?
