In the subtropics this species takes about 12 to 15 years to form a trunk, it will take full sun from quite an early age and seems to grow it’s best in the ground in a well mulched garden in the full sun, having said that this species seems to be quite tough and handle the cold and dry hard soils just as well only growing a little slower. Once this species does form a trunk it then becomes quite a steady grower and is a very spectacular landscaping palm with long lime green leaves to 4 to 5m long. It also has a lovley bamboo like trunk, the crownshaft can also have some orange colour once the old leaf base falls off but this does not normally last for a long time. This species makes a great landscaping palm and likes a well-mulched garden bed and should be planted in a prominent area to appreciate its true beauty!!
