Pretty as a small plant, imposing as a mature tree, the Footstool palm germinates easily, and grows very quickly
and easily. The leaves are, as you might guess, round in outline from a very early age and have a glossy green colour.
The trunk is clothed in its upper portion with beautifully woven fibres and the crown
is taller then wide, making it easily recognizable. It appreciates a subtropical
or tropical climate and makes one of the most attractive potted fan
palms when young.
