Neoveitchia storckii ia a solitary, moderately stout palm with a “mocha” colored trunk on an expanded base, can grow upwards to 40 feet. It has a full leafy canopy of 12-15 fronds; the fronds are up to 16 feet in length with heavy leaflets that arch out in a characteristic lateral twist. The crown shaft is glossy and nearly black in color.
Cultivation & Culture
Distinctively tropical this palm requires good amount of water to thrive but from first hand growing experience, not picky regarding soil.
Ornamentally this palm checks all the boxes, nearly black crownshaft, mocha colored ringed trunk, large deep green feathery leaflets.
Super hard to find a rare and stunning specimen that stands out in a crowd.
A personal favorite for sure !
