My Foxy’s First

Recommended Posts

I recently noticed a bit of a bulge under the old leaf base of one of my Foxy Lady’s. (Hard to notice in the picture)

Now that the old leaf base is loose enough, this weekend I decided to take a peek. Yep, my suspicion is correct, my Foxy Lady’s about to show it’s first flower spathe. Awww, they grow so fast. And yes, I know, these are really just ornamental, but I’m still kind of excited to enter this new phase with this one.

Here she is in all her glory. These pics also taken this weekend.

Thanks for looking.

Congratulations! Your palm has entered adolescence. That first spathe is very thin like most palm's first attempts. It might be an empty spathe but any of the next ones will likely pop flowers. :)

I have 2, they got so tall you would never even know I have them. Fast fast growers, yours is a great size to enjoy right now.

I don’t know how old it is exactly. It was sold to me back I think in early 2014 as as I think about a 6 ft. tall 7 gallon and lived in a pot awhile because I was fixing to do a complete backyard remodel. Once in the ground it took off.

I also have two. My second is a little younger but has basically caught up to this one. Anyone who owns these palms know how fast they are. I documented my other one in a thread called Fast Foxy.
