 Cyrtostachys lakka, Cyrtostachys renda
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Lipstick Palm, Sealing Wax Palm
Origin: Malaysia, Indonesia, Borneo
small tree 10-20 ftfull sunmoderate waterpalm or palm-likeultra tropical, min. temp. 55FSeaside, salt tolerant plantincuded in CD catalog

A stunning feather palm that develops a brilliantly red trunk. Palm is originally from Malaysia, but has been introduced to Costa Rica and other tropical areas of the world. Sealing Wax Palm seeds are very slow to germinate, up to a year. This palm will require a good overhead light, especially when grown indoors, and constant warmth. It's a very cold-sensitive plant and must be kept above 55F all the time. Soil should be rich, moist and loamy, and plant should be fed monthly with a commercial tropical plant food, or a plant food specifically formulated for palms. It's definitely worth an effort to grow this beauty!
