Those are so gorgeous. There are so many 3 gallon Raveneas EVERYWHERE (even here in Chicago) but from what I've heard seeing one of those size is pretty rare (probably because of the sunlight and ridiculous water needs) Anyways awesome post!

I agree with what everyone else is saying. Great looking palms. IMO, Ravenea Rivularis is perhaps the most underrated palm. Probably for two reasons.

1)  They need a lot of tlc to keep them looking nice. Where I live I see some that look ok, but most look very yellow and kind of ratty. Most people do not give them the amount of water and fertilizer they need to look good.

2) Just the fact that the big box stores always have an endless supply of them. I think that makes a lot of palm people turn their noses up at them.

But like I said, when well grown like yours, absolutely beautiful palms.

When they're in the juvenile stage, they look like coconuts from aways.

Honestly they could be a good substitute for coconuts in places that aren't full-on tropics but almost there. Coconuts I see there tend to be ratty sometimes...
