I've been growing this beauty for years, and it is one of my favorite plants.

I had to lay down at an angle to get a good shot of this palm so I apologize for the extemporaneous items in the shot. I've got a few inches to go before this lovely starts grazing the 10ft ceiling because of the pot.

Don’t apologise, the picture is lovely too. What a splendid plant!

Thank you, I happen to be the painter of it.

Fish Tail Palm are really splendid. They're not particularly easy to grow in my zone but they do tend to look a bit raggedy even when they're healthy (with those edges on the frond looking craft cutter snipped) so when it pitches a fit only the owner can tell!

Wow! Have you posted your painting in Arts and Yarns?

LOL at the plant pitching a fit. I’ve only had a couple of pot plants over the years and it’s been an achievement if they don’t turn up their toes within months.

Great plant skill you have there. I am always in awe of those who can grow such majestic plants. I have a few pots in the house due to cold weather and it is always a race to see if I kill them prior to the weather allowing them outside again.

Preparing plants for overwinter indoors is always a bit like playing a really sadistic game of musical chairs for me. I just toss covers on everyone if there's a hard freeze and hope for the best after also playing Winter Death Race.
