Nice looking palm with great looking grey crownshaft. This palm grows a LOT slower than the 'normal' variety of Dictyocaryum, even in the tropics. Has ornamental white petioles and a bit of 'fur' on the undersides of the leaflets.. is really just a variation of Dictyosperma album, not a separate species

Regional...
