3 Gallon Fan Palm

I ordered the 3 gallon fan palm a few weeks ago and it came in and is growing beautifully. Within the same shipment I ordered the Kiwi pack and that never came in the shipment with the palm for some reason. However, I contacted customer support and they quickly fixed the error and made it right. Great customer service.

The palm is doing well and even has a little new growth since I transplanted it.

The tree came damaged.

It was shipped and stood upside down. When I opened it all the leaves were bent and broke. I call customer service and they took care of the problem right away. They gave me a gift card for the price of the palm.

European Fan Palm

OK. Little smaller than I expected. Ordered two windmill palms that are closer to size expected.
