Hardiness

A great low maintenance plant. Tolerates minimal care. Will look better if you treat it well.

Drought tolerance

Yeah pretty good. Will last a while without water but when it gets hot needs some love in the form of water.

Will it Grow in Brisbane?

Yes

Shade Tolerance

Loves the shade. Will grow in full sun but fronds might dry off and go a bit brown. Perfect to create a shady rain-forest character.

Size

Grows to about 2 to 4 metres high. Sometimes bigger in the rainforest not that we go there that often. Spread of the fronds can be about 3 metres.
