Caryota urens - Fishtail Palm

This post is part of the "Trees of the Tropics" series and has been crossposted from Trees, plants and more.

Here's a tree I would love to spend more time looking at - i marvel at this beauty every time i go to the horticultural gardens, here in Chennai, India. It brings odd childhood memories to mind... gypsy jewellery vendors with string upon string of beads precariously balanced on each outstretched hand...
Click on the pictures and you will see that there are two types of "necklaces" to chose from! Lovely, isnt it?!
