All palms are slow at stage where they put out strap leaves. When they start to put out mature leaves they start to speed up a bit. This is a Jubaeaesque palm and it is going to get ENORMOUS , at which point it would grow pretty quickly even in our climate.

Nice palm. Have you left it in the UK, or taken it to Malta. icon_thumright

Taking palms from the UK to Malta would be like carrying coals to Newcastle.

Yes & no. There are tons of palms in Malta, but pretty much all are Washingtonia robusta & filifera, Phoenix dactylifera & canariensis, Chamaerops humilis & Syagrus romanzoffiana. You do see the odd other type about, such as Phoenix roebelinii, Sabal's, Livistona chinensis or Howea forsteriana, but for the most part it's Washies & date palms...

So I have actually brought a few palms out with me, which are rare out here, such as Jubutyagrus, Butyagrus, Archontophoenix cunninghamiana, Rhopalostylis bauerii & my seed grown Cocos nucifera icon_thumright

Even if they're rare in Malta, they should grow much quicker down there!

Yes, tiny little island south of Sicily... We moved here as my partner is half Maltese & has lots of family here, we were both fed up of the UK (not just the weather) so decided to try out living here. The bonus being that it has one of the warmest climates in Europe, has very close ties to the UK still (is still part of the Commonwealth despite being a republic) & English is the second offical language, plus it is just under 3 hours flight the UK icon_thumright

The Coconut is just an experiment really & I only brought it with me as I grew it myself. I don't know of any growing here but I believe there used to be one growing at the Botanical Garden at Palermo on Sicily. The things that do grow in Malta are quite surprising though, with many truly tropical plants/trees growing here just fine, so you never know...
