I have a small palm as a house plant, never quite sure if it likes to have a lot of water or not? I expect it should have plenty of light?

Very nice Delonix. I can't wait for my Bird of Paradise to get that big!

Alexandramou:

Thanks! This Bird-of-Paradise is probably around 35 years old (possibly much older).

Stickitoffe:

Do you know the name of the palm? I may be able to help you, I know a lot about palms. I belonged to the International Palm Society for many years (since 1984).
