Pinnate leaves type palm. This palm can adapt to indoor growing but will grow a lot faster and taller when grown outside (if your climate allows.). Trunk turns yellowish with age. With this, you will receive a grove-style plant; which means there are many plants grown closely together. If you wish to have a taller plant then you must extract one and grow it as a solo plant.
