    actually they fell into some bushes and when I went to fish them out they had popped out

    palms are related to grasses not trees and they reproduce fairly well

    How will you know when the pineapple is ready to eat? I grew a watermelon once but I harvested it too early and had to throw it out.

    here is the base of a traveler's palm

    not a true palm but water would catch in the fronds providing needed sustenance while in the JUNGLE
