6 years in your ideal conditions?? goodness knows if I will ever see them on my trees :(, but I check every day :rofl:

Past humorous! I looked at photo and immediately thought What the…!!! My first thought was birds of paradise somehow coming out. Fine minds think alike. That’s my story and sticking to it. You are NOT alone. :rofl:

well i will get pics later today as we finally have some sunny skies but the spikes are open and there are 1,000,000,000 tiny "buds" but already several that are growing into something!

like i said initially, i dont expect any fruits yet here but it sure looks like it is doing a really good practice run....maybe i totally got lucky and its a dwarf!!!

That's what palm inflorescences look like. Those are flower buds, similar to corn.
