Majestic/Majesty Palm (ravenea rivularis)

The Majesty Palm is a comparative newcomer to the palm scene. Despite that, it has become incredibly popular, mainly due to its attractive appearance, with feathery green leaves and thick trunk, but also because of its legendary speed of growth. It comes from Madagascar, where it grows in swampy areas up to an altitude of about 2,000 feet, it requires lashings of water, fertile soil and heavy feeding to maintain its appearance, color and growth rate. It thrives in a whole range of climates from tropical to warm temperate and while not very frost tolerant, it will put up well with cool conditions, and also performs nicely as an interior plant if the light is bright enough.
