Post Parajubaea Growth over 36-months
Hi there
Here is a pic from 3-years ago vs today at the trunk growth rate of my Parajubaea Palm.
What do you think ?

I think changing to black socks has obviously done wonders for the growth rate. Must absorb more heat.

You have a better climate for it then Los Angeles. As long as no fluke cold dips into the -8C or so. They come from cool wet climates. Cloudy. Here,they do best in Oakland at the Palmetum. It was genius to plant a grove of them 30 years ago. I got to make a update trip.

Thanks to your socks and weather the growth is fantastic for me. Mine only put 2 to 3 palms a year.
Jubaea grows by far faster here mine 25 year old Jubaea is about 3,5 m of clean trunc.
