With long leaves, radiating out from each leaf stem, giving them a fox tail-like appearance, white flowers blossom, followed by clusters of orange -red fruit. This spectacular palm, native to Queensland, is great for growing in pots and containers on a sunny patio or in a conservatory or greenhouse. It is tender to frost so needs to be brought inside during the colder winter months. The Foxtail Palm remained undiscovered until 1978 when an Aboriginal man brought this species to the attention of authorities. It is now named after him 'Wodyeti'.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 20-25 degrees C. Seeds sometimes germinate within 4 to 6 weeks although some may take very much longer so please be patient. Plant out in the open ground in warmer countries or in a large container elsewhere.
