Default Palm tree look alikes? Meaning banana palm?

Is that what palm tree look alikes are? For instance travelers, or banana or bird of paradise?

Default Correct.

Yes Palm Tree look alike can consist of many types of plants. Including the ones you listed and in some cases Cycads are palm tree look alikes.
Hope this clarifies

Default the dioon

is not a palm its actually a palm look-alike, and actually a cycad. Cycads bring a soft touch to areas and darkened areas. They are very beautiful and when planted underneath the right palm, you'll have a dynamic duo...

Default Not so Constant, Constant..lol

just kidding Constant... So anything new happen. I saw that RPT had a new Interior Design section up with interesting new pictures. They should put more interior pictures up, also it would be good too if they placed exterior pictures for those wanting to landscape. It would be good to show us ideas of landscaping techniques. Also, RPT should have a frequently asked area referencing the best way of planting and transplanting the palm tree... Just thinking out loud Constant...
