That is some serious growth but also an excellent example that usda zones do not mean the climates are comparable. Mine is of similar age but half the size. It rarely ever sees frost.

No special fertilizer. I do supply water during our very hot and dry summers. 
I got it from Patric S. 
I think mine and maesy’s looks almost identical  growing in very different climates.

These are really nice. You all inspired me to get my own. Planted out a 5 gallon earlier in the season.

I'd really like to see a trunking specimen. To me, they clearly favor Jubaea but are distinct from them. I love Jubaea and honestly wish they looked exactly the same, just faster. They look nothing like my yatays, which in my opinion are the most attractive Butia (outside of maybe B. purpurascens). My yatays are both silver colored.
