Care & Size Guidance

Although slightly more tender than the species it has a compact growth habit compared to the species, so more amenable to long term pot culture.

Near the end of its life, the plant sends up a tall, branched stalk, laden with yellow blossoms, that may reach a total height up to 8–9 m. After flowering, the plant dies, however it produces many side shoots that will continue to grow.

Water sparingly in spring and summer and keep dry in winter.

Expert Tip

Even while young the plants may produce offsets. These can be left in place or removed and potted up as separate plants.

Just had delivery of this beauty. Delivery was super fast , the plant was extremely well packed and in top condition. Cannot wait to plant it. Would highly recommend the palm centre.
