Pack of 5 seeds.

A native of South America, where over-harvesting has placed the natural populations of this palm species on the endangered list.  This is a tall growing plant that is one of the primary sources for the vegetable Heart of Palm, the main ingredient of the Millioniares Salad.  Never common, this trade has pushed the demand for this delicacy to a point where other species are now being  looked at, especially as the process of harvesting kills the plant.

A fast growing and majestic palm, this grows to some 8 metres or more tall on a single stem, with long fronds and a coloured crownshaft.

Prefers a warm, moist location and filtered sunlight when young, making this an ideal palm for the house.  As it matures it can take direct sunlight, but not frost, making it suitable for container growth in temperate areas.

Very easy from seed by following the instructions provided with which I have successfully germinated 1000's of palm seeds.
