I can see it potted for life. Its not a large palm even in ground. Plus in a pot..you can see the reddish petioles on 'indica". Unless what I have is H.lagenicaulis. That too has reddish petioles when a young palm.
My seeds came from Miami so H.indica red form isnt all that much of a stretch. Whats super rare here might be a Home Depot special there.
