Reply from Royal Horticultural Society, United Kingdom reports as follows: Dear Mr Satiar Thank you for your enquiry to the Royal Horticultural Society's Members' Advisory Service. Our Botanists have made the following further comments: "Now that we have a picture we can see that it is not a Hyphaene (Hyphaene are fan-leaved). Aberrant, multi-headed plants are rare, but have been recorded for several species, including species of Cocos. See for example the palm aberrations shown on the web at: http://www.plantapalm.com/vpe/photos/vpe_photos2b.htm Multi-headed trees are thought to be caused by injury to the growing point by insects or a physical force such as lightning. We should thank Mr Satiar for sending the picture which is certainly very interesting. If the above website is any indication, this tree may well set a new record for its multiple heads."
