Dypsis lastelliana or leptocheilos

To tell the truth I'm not sure which this is or where I came from.  I should take my book down to the "garden" and try to figure it out.

Either way it is endemic to Madagascar.

I think it went into the ground in 1996.  This first picture was taken in 1998

Seven years later it has show a lot of growth.  This is September of 2005.
