Among palm enthusiasts, almost any species from New Caledonia is sought after. This species falls into that group. It is a crown shafted palm with a rather thin trunk of about eight inches that gets to a height of approximately 25 to 30 feet. It has an intriguing brown color to the stems and crown shaft area. It does not have the stripes you’d see with the Burretiokentia vieilllardii. Cold tolerance is about 25 degrees F, or perhaps a bit less. So, it’s comparable to a King Palm. If you can grow a King, you can grow this species. One of the keys to culture is not letting the ground it’s in go dry. This species, like Chambeyronia, responds to water. Shown below is our fifteen gallon size that I’m putting on special. I’d recommend morning sun, a few hours of mid-day sun, or bright filtered light. It’s a great species to grow.
