Triangle Palm, Neodypsis decaryi

This palm originates from the South African Island of Madagascar. A unique palm because of its unusual leaf base which forms a pronounced triangle shape. Thrives in full sun, is a slow grower and is very drought tolerant. Makes a great indoor plant because of its attractive appearance and slower growth habit. Leaves can be damaged at temperatures below freezing. If damaged from cold, recovery can take up to two years as a whole new set of leaves must be generated.
