Ceroxylon ventricosum

Synonymy: Unknown Distribution: South America
Common names: Andean wax palm Conservation status: Unknown

This species is larger than most Ceroxylon and has a swollen trunk, in nature covered with white wax from
which the plants take their common name. Again, use acid soil, and provide moist conditions. Fabulous and
cool tolerant mountain palm.
