An easily grown palm which prefers full sun, but can also do well in partial shade. It likes constant moisture, as well as soils that drain well. It has a lovely green bamboo-like trunk which is covered in a white powder by which will remain long when well protected, giving the trunk an almost white appearance. Propagate by seeds, which germinate 2 to 4 months. It is best to soak seeds in warm water overnight before sowing.
