It got the special pot only for that photo shooting. :P Now it must live together with its siblings again in a narrow »one-for-four« pot. :D

I can't stand the slowness of this tiny jewel.

But it looks like that this newest leaf might be partially pinnate! :yay:

They look great! :)

How well do these tolerate semi shade/shade? I am thinking about getting some Lytocaryum for my western windowsil.

L itapebiense is an understorey palm with creeping (acaulescent) stem growing in shade to semi shade on slopes at 250-350 m altitude. — My four babies are at present growing on a bright NNW windowsill.

It doesn't look like it, though #5 is not entirely unfolded yet. Still I expect it to remain entire.

This is the 2 days older sister N°1604, pushing her 7th leaf since 2018-05-23. The 4th leaf had already 7 leaflets and the 5th 11 leaflets. — The surface of your soil looks so clean, compared to mine although it is the same mix … :blink:

As I could see that there were no problems or any growth delay after repotting the two first palms I decided today to repot the remaining two palms N°1603 & N°1604 too:
