Glad you like it! : > ) It has the same cultural requirement as Carludovica palmata. However, it's flowers are very different...they are in cluster at the base of the plant. I know I've posted some photos of this plant in bloom a while back.

I hope you can obtain this plant! If you know someone who has this plant, maybe you can get a pup. I received my plant as a pup from a friend.

Glad you liked it. :>) I have this plant, it doesn't really like the hard water here in San Diego!
