This tree lives along the banks of creeks and rivers in Madagascar so it does not mind growing in consistently moist soil. Do not let it dry out. It likes constant feeding as well, therefore a slow release fertilizer is recommended. This plant grows well indoors in bright indirect light, as they are usually grown outside in the shade. This plant grows fairly quick and can overwhelm the indoors if given a big enough pot, as they can grow over 18 feet tall.

 

This plant likes humidity, therefore a humidifier will benefit it, otherwise mist it with a water bottle frequently. Fronds will get brown tips if the soil stays too dry. This plant will grow well outside in the warm season on a sunny patio but it must be transitioned by being moved outside into the heavy shade for a week and slowly introduced to the sun. This tree is hardy in zones 10 to 11. Do not let a heat vent blow directly on this plant.
