· Hi Marlene-A plants growth rate normally refers to the plants vertical rate of growth in one growing season. This rate of growth of course can be influenced by several factors such as type of soil, drainage, water, fertility, light exposure, and temperatures etc.. The Arbor Day Foundation along with others will designate slow growth as meaning the plant will grow 12" or less per year, medium growth refers to 13" to 24" or growth per year, and fast to 25" or greater per year. From what I have seen of this palm I would consider it a slow grower. This would be 12" or less per year. Again depending on the type of soil, climate, and care the plants normal growth would most likely be no more than 12".
Please don't hesitate to ask any other questions you may have.
