Late last year I attempted this cross and got a grand total of 3 viable seeds for my effort. Fortunately though one of them has germinated.

Could those of you that have this hybrid post a picture of it? There must be some sizable ones by now, although I've heard they can be pretty slow to get going.

Butia odorata "mother:

Syagrus schizophylla "father". Not a great example as it has been quite neglected.
