Landscape plant (needs space) most soils, best in good sunlight, lowest leaflets have stiff, sharp spines.
Excellent landscaping palm. This spectacular palm will be equally happy in full sun or indoor shade. It is also a very good container plant for a patio or large courtyard as its growth will be slowed but it will still be happy and healthy in a pot - keep well watered. Indoor (reaches 1-2m) or sheltered out (10-20m), indirect light, looks good in groups.
