Hydroponic Dypsis lutescens

Just put these two d. lutescens palms in a pure water setup, I'm curious to see how they do.  My plan is to change the water every three days or so, and add a diluted dose of FloriGro 2-1-6 food to the water after the first week.  After a thorough rinse I soaked the palms in a weak hydrogen peroxide bath for half an hour, then I carefully wrapped the top 2" of the root systems in a curled up wash cloth and stuck it all in a vase of filtered water.

      Hey guys!  Over the past year and a half I've been playing around with different methods of growing d. lutescens.  Seems like they are kind of Honda Civic of indoor palms in the sense that they are very common and inexpensive, so I started with a few clusters of approx 20-30 small seedlings and split some of them up individually into their own pots as well as some into smaller groups.  I'm a big fan of potted palms grown as solitary/single trunk specimens and I wanted to see how d. lutescens would do in that format, especially because I feel like I've never actually seen them grown to maturity as single trunk palms, seems like they are pretty much exclusively grown in clumps/clusters.  
      So far my individually potted specimens have been doing well and are turning out to be even more beautiful that I'd imagined as single trunk palms, their delicate blade-like pinnae are quite stunning in this format  I'm wondering if anyone has grown solitary d. lutescens like this and if so could you share any pictures/experience?  Very curious to see pictures of larger trunking d. lutescens as standalone palms, haven't been able to find much online in that regard.  Thanks in advance!

      Will this much water sitting under my Sylvester palm kill it? I’ve had it for about a month and all this water sits under it when it rains. There’s no discoloration but the fronds have lowered a tiny bit the past few days and I’m scared it might die. Will it be fine?

      This true-from-seed mutation of the normally common Golden Cane Palm came to the attention of PalmTalk during the 2016 Biennial in Thailand where this mutation originated. I bought 10 seeds from RPS the following year or so and currently have four extra seedlings that need new homes. These seedlings were agonizingly slow growing compared to the standard golden cane and these are four years old. They do germinate true from seed as RPS claims so maybe in the future this Fused Leaf Form will become more easily available. See info below:
