If you live here in California you will see at least one of these guys growing out of an old sign post hole or a crack in the sidewalk. These palms grow anywhere there's dirt and water. Knowing that there some really tough plants i decided to pull one out of the local train tracks(thats right. it was growing in crushed rocks) and put it into a pot. Has anyone ever tried to bonsai a palm tree? I know you cant trim the top down or anything but i was wondering if anyone has kept one of these guys in a small bonsai pot for a few years.
