Hi all,
following up my contri on Nam Cayuse loach, my suggestion to build palm tree.

Pic 1 tools and materials- the trunk is formed by the low part of pastic flower, elettric wire, scissor, masking tape etc.


Remove from the elettric wire the plastic & cut the wire in pieces between 3,5 cm and 5 cm. This will be the lenght of branch (generally in a palm tree, the new branches are in the upper part and are small then the old branch) and...
pic 2


Now, with scissor, do little cut to the branch to simulate the single leaf
pic 3, 4




Generally I put 8 or 9 branches for each tree. Put epoxy putty (I use GW) at the top of the trunk and insert each branch
pic 5


pic 6
Do 2 or 3 palm without trunk to simulate a new palm at the base of palm



... Hope you like & useful
cheers
salvatore

Good luck, I've tried this approach in the past but found it too time consuming, so I've now got the plastic cake decoration palmn trees, they have the added advantage of being robust if not as nice looking as yours.
