Looks good.  How fast are they growing there?

Those above were bought in 5g pots from a big box store probably 18 years now or so. They had them in the houseplant section under the name "Wagner" palms. They were all the same size when planted, I dont know why the little one has never done much. It has not done as well, so that's an idea of how well the healthier (?) two have grown. I just moved the smaller one. It was in front of the other two and thought maybe it would help. I like the "papa", "mama", "baby" look though. They are always pushing out new spears, but they are very compact, as you can see. They get most of their growth in spring and autumn. I don't think they like the hot humid summers that much.

oh no. :bummed: what a shame.  The good thing with Trachys is they are ok to move, so you can dig them up and replant them.

Damn sorry to hear that! Hope they transplant well and recover as those exact palms are the biggest reason why I want a waggy or 2!

They are fine. I just stood them back up and secured them. 1 day of 80-100 mph winds, a second day of 50-80mph winds, a third day of 30-50mph wind, biblical amounts of rain to soften the soil. Does not seem strange to me.
