started it on a drip cycle and fed it Palm Gain.

 Mine also appreciates the drip. The new petioles are way more purple than those that grew when it was potted … have you noticed that, too? I’m hoping that’s a sign it’s receiving enough sun.

I haven't necessarily noticed purple coloration on the petioles. But mine get's blasted with around 10 hours of direct sun a day, so I'll have to take a closer look. It's just really starting to get established after a set back earlier this year. An air conditioner tech accidently sprayed half of my alfi with compressor oil and as you can imagine I was very unhappy when I discovered it, but the palm was a lot more unhappy. It's finally starting to outgrow the damage.
