It grows abundantly normally not far from the coast and always near watercourses and/or wetlands.

It can be varied depending on where it is from, although, generally speaking, it is a very large clustered palm.

It is not demanding as far as the quality of soil is concerned and providing it does not lack water it grows rapidly.

It hybridizes easily with other Phoenix.
