Palmate:

You're correct! : >)

Each tree has from 5 to 8 spikes like this...containing many thousands of seeds. It depend on how tall the tree is...and their potential height is 100 feet/ 32 meters tall. Although in Coastal California they tend to only top out at 60 - 70 feet.

Mushybanna:

Caryota urens is one of the fastest growing palms in the World. They can grow to 30 feet/ 10 meters within 5 or 6 years...then they slow down.
