From northern Venezuela, this unusual Syagrus has the leaflets attractively arranged into groups of 2 to 3 segments; this is discernible from quite a young age. Rich soil, and an abundance of water summarize its requirements. Given these, growth is quite fast and rewarding. Tolerates quite low temperatures so worth a try in cooler climates. Unusual palm, rarely seen in cultivation; seeds rarely offered for sale.
