Everything we know about Trachycarpus takil in cultivation has been wrong, as palm experts discovered in 2009. Instead of growing the real species, we all had a form of Trachycarpus fortunei from Nanital, India (just northwest of Nepal). Trachycarpus fortunei 'Nanital' has more finely divided leaves than most typical Trachycarpus fortunei, along with a trunk that has a slight lean...a la the Tower of Pisa. Anything written about Trachycarpus takil in cultivation before 2010 refers to Trachycarpus 'Nanital'. As of 2010, seed of the true Trachycarpus takil is just becoming available.
