Native to Madagascar, the triangle palm is common in cultivation. This low maintenance palm gets its common name from the triangle-shaped frond arrangement. The stiff green fronds have a feathery appearance. It stays relatively short in stature compared to other palm species.
Potassium deficiency and sooty molds can be problematic. Feed the palm twice a year with a slow-release fertilizer and maintain potassium levels, especially if the fronds start to yellow. It can handle periods of drought but should be watered after planting to ensure a successful transplant.
