A rare palm in south florida, though it should grow in almost every part of the state, except maybe the inland panhandle. This palm is much faster and more beautiful than it's close cousin, Syagrus Romanzoffiana(queen palm). Some say this palm takes a backseat in growth only to the genus pigafetta. I have been advised not to fertilize my two plants, as they have a tendancy to outgrow their roots and topple over in high winds... I'll take my chances!

Seeds germinate faster if the endocarp, or outer shell, is cracked in a vice. Some species seeds are easily damaged by this technique but the endocarp on Syagrus botryophora is so thick and hard that it just "pops" and releases the seed inside. Be sterile in handling and sowing when using this technique. I recommend perlite to sow in.

Wonderful Syagrus with thin trunk, fast growth (relatively), and mod length, arching leaves with fine, slightly sparsely spaced leaflets on a flat plane (not plumose like most Syagrus). Also seems to retain several ranks of leaves along trunk. Trunk covered with an ornamental neat weave of fiber. Seedlings have long strap leaves and take years to develop their first split leaves. This has been a good palm for me, though a bit marginal in zone 9b (gets damaged by frosts). Relatively new in cultivation. Experience in Florida has shown it to be a very fast grower there, but also easily blown over in high winds.
