Features

  • Solitary, pinnate palm. Height up to 3.0m. The palm has a small stature, in rare cases, this palm can grow to 10 feet, with a trunk reaching a diameter of about 2". The leaves can eventually become about 90cm (35 inch) long and 22cm (9 inch) wide, the shiny, dark green fronds, which are divided into many pinnae (or leaflets) spread out from a very short thickened base.
  • Formerly known as Microcoelum weddellianum or Cocos weddelliana, this small palm originates from high altitudes in Brazil's Coastal Cloud Forest. Now rare in the wild due not to 'over exploitation by seed collectors' as is popularly and routinely supposed, but by forest destruction that is eating up the tiny remaining areas where it clings to life.
  • Lytocaryum is suited to a wide range of climates from cool temperate to cool tropical and will tolerate light frosts. It grows best in a humus rich, acidic soil.
