Siphokentia beguinii


common names: umbrella palm, moluccan umbrella palm


A fast growing single trunk palm of only 2 to 3 inches in diameter that can grow to maybe 20 to 25 feet and  does well here in south Florida. Filtered light, lots of water and an amended soil with lots of organic matter is to their liking. It grows in two distinct forms; a much prized and highly sought after “broad leaf form” and a split leaf form which are both indistinguishable when young…. So its kind of plant it and see what you get…
