Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PalmTree Stunning and exceeded my expectations.
This plant is absolutely awesome.
It came in great condition from UPS and arrived in a timely manner. I had an incorrect address issue which was brought to my attention by a persistent and hard-working corporate solutions woman from Home Depot. The address problem was immediately resolved and the plant arrived healthy and bright-looking (I was worried about the length of time it might be boxed without water while waiting for that correct address).
It's a good 4 feet tall, including the pot that it's in. I opened the package from its side (while the box was standing upright), and as a heads up you might want to have a newspaper or something to put it down on because there may be a small amount of loose dirt from the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot (if you're having it shipped like I did).
The plant looks even better than pictured here. I highly recommend this product from Home Depot, the price was right (about 20 bucks), and the quality top notch. I ordered it from the website.
I wasn't completely sure what size the plant would be, thinking it could be 10 inches tall, but in fact that 10 inches refers to the diameter of the pot, I believe. Awesome size plant for the money. I'll be buying another as a gift soon.
It's hard to find tropical plants here in Connecticut, so I was more than happy to see such a reasonable price for a plant outside this growing zone. I had read some bad reviews about buying from other dubious palm tree websites and, additionally, I couldn't find these particular palm trees at Lowe's. I also searched my local nursery and couldn't find them either. Home Depot came through, and I truly hope they will continue to expand their tropical palm tree line.
This plant is amazing. On a side note, I also bought a Cateracterum ("Cat") Palm from Home Depot with the same order, and it, too, was full and gorgeous. I will review that one in a moment as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nikovnikov Excellent, healthy plant!
When ordering this plant, I had no idea exactly how tall it would be. It is about 4' tall, and I have taken a picture of it next to a full-length bookshelf to compare (the pot in the picture is my own -- it comes in a regular 10" plastic liner pot). It was well packaged and very healthy upon arrival. This was an extremely good deal for the size of the plant!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Plants4Life Plant arrived frozen, well on its way to death.
We ordered two houseplants from Home Depot, both of which arrived frozen. A few days after arrival, the palm was already showing signs of death. We tried all kinds of remedies (besides the usual watering and putting near sunlight), including a humidifier and fertilizer. It has been maybe 2-3 weeks since its arrival. Today, we cut off all the dead parts, which was basically everything except 4 new shoots. This means it is showing signs of life so we hope it can hang a few more months until summer. I rated it poor because I am upset it arrived frozen, which kills plants. However, I am not sure if this was Home Depot's doing, or simply because I ordered it in January and it froze naturally on the truck. I would recommend buying this product in the spring, summer, or fall.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LSalz The product was mostly healthy upon delivery
The plant itself looks great overall, with some minor damages due to delivery. The box was slightly damaged upon arrival with a broken, plastic planting pot inside. I do enjoy the green color, although, the plant has already browned on some tips and arrived with a few damaged leaves.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by juni Very healthy & larger than I expected.
I had a hard time finding this specific palm & some of the prices were outlandish, considering they are so over grow in Fl. & are everywhere.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LL2015 One of two plants died
The plants arrived on time and looking great, but one of them must not have been very healthy, because it started dying right away, and despite proper care it died very soon after delivery.
