Mushybanna, Sandra:

Yes, Archontophoenix species can grow extremely fast...especially when they receive a lot of water and fertilizer. These plants seem to get a lot of water due to a good sprinkler system. In its native Queensland, Australia these palms grow along rivers and streams in tropical rain forest.
