- Position: indirect light

- Rate of growth: slow
- Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
- Current height: approximately 20cm (including pot)
- Pot covers: choose a 14cm pot cover to give a good fit over the potLance-shaped fronds, each with a slightly wavy edge, form a distinctive shuttlecock-like effect. Initially the fronds are a light lime green, however the fronds soon mature to a deeper, richer green. It has a really striking silhouette, so it looks good on its own, but it can also be used in a mixed indoor arrangement, where it will add structural interest to plants with a much softer leaf shape.
- Home care: Avoid handling the newly emerging fronds and water regularly in the growing season so that the compost remains moist but not waterlogged. Mist the leaves regularly with water - particularly in winter when the central heating is turned on. Maintain temperatures above 10°C, repot when the plant becomes root-bound.
