One of my first trachies planted out in 2003

Here is an almost annual pictorial story of growth

You gotta love the before and after, good old TF are not that slow after all. ;-)

My windmill palm is in its 2nd year and its a bit smaller than yours back in 2003. Im hoping mine grows at the same rate as yours did! It put out 5 fronds for the year but I cant get good comparison pics until the frost knocks out all the plants around it which wont happen until about November. But when that does happen, I will share some pics of its growth rate!
You have a beautiful trachy! I definitely think its worth the 7 year wait and in another decade, that will easily be taller than a 2 story house!!!
Good luck!
