A very pretty small size palm with a slender trunk and an open crown of deeply divided leaves with thin segments, dark green above and silvery white below. The Silver Thatch Palm is a slow but reliable grower and, with its small overall size, it will find room in any garden. It likes a position in full sun or light shade in a tropical or subtropical climate, and, once established, can endure quite some coastal exposure, dry conditions, and even the occasional short, light frost. Indoors it also makes a neat bonsai that can even be cultivated just on a piece of coral limerock, practically without soil. Sunny, moist, but well drained position.
