Livistona carinensis grows well here in Miami. It can droop a little if it doesn't get irrigation during a prolonged drought, but otherwise, it's easy to grow. It flowers and fruits.

Townsville Palmetum James Cook University, Townsville, Australia Dr. J. Dowe There are presently five individuals of L. carinesis in the Townsville Palmetum. The seeds were obtained in 1992 from the Yemen Depatment of Agriculture, from wild plants near Hadramaut. The Palmetum received approx. 50 seeds. Of these, about half were sent to other botanic gardens in Australia. Of the remainder, about 75% germinated, and of these about 10 survived to a size large enough to be planted out. The 10 were planted out in the Palmetum in 1997: since then, 5 have perished. Of the five survivors, one has flowered and indeed set fruit, but it failed to reach maturity. The others range from 1 to 1.5 m tall, and are considerably smaller than the 2.5 m one that has flowered. The five have recently [about 3 months ago] been relocated within the Palmetum, and as of yesterday appear to be doing well.
