Dypsis decaryi - Triagle Palm

Dypsis decaryi - Triagle Palm (Dypsis decaryi - Triagle Palm)

This triangle palm is planted in a small planter...this is an example of where not to put a palm. This palm will grow to almost 30 feet eventually. The roots generally grow straight down in the ground, however, the trunk will get pretty large and eventually break the brick planter. Pic taken today

Sometimes these palms have them and sometimes not...I'm not sure of the reason why. Plants are very similar to humans...diversity within a species. That's my little non-scientific explanation. LOL!!

There's about 20 large Dypsis decaryi located less than a quarter of a mile from my house in front of an apartment or condo complex. These D. decaryi have the long threads. I'm going to post a few of these beautiful palms soon. I past by them almost everyday...however, have never stopped to take a picture of them.

Thanks for explaining about why that palm is in the wrong place, and what will happen to the brick planter as the palm gets larger.
A pity it is not in the right location, because this looks very pretty.

Yes, it is a pity...however, there are many of these palms growing in California. There's a possibility this tree's trunk will become enlarged above the brick planter and continue to grow very healthy. I've seen it happen with many other palms.

I like it..looks like an exotic Cycad. Well grown.
