Dypsis decaryi seed

It is indigenous to the Madagascar rainforest. Some specimens grow to a height of some 15 meters in the wild. The leaves are about 2.5 meters in length, growing almost upright from the trunk and arching gracefully outward about a meter from their tips. The leaf bases are arranged in three vertical columns set about 120 degrees apart on the main stem, forming a triangular shape in cross section. This shape has given rise to the palm’s common name. The palm is best suited to sandy soil and it tends to do poorly in clay soil.Cold Tolerance: It can tolerate temperatures down to 30F for a short period of time when mature enough.
