Ceroxylon vogelianum

Synonymy: Ceroxylon hexandrum Distribution: South America, Andes mountains
Common names: Vogel's wax palm Conservation status: Unknown



Beautiful Ceroxylon from the Andes Mountain with - uniquely - plumose leaves. This
beautiful aspect, together with the fact that it shows some resistance to cold, make
it a definite contender for the sheltered garden. Until it is big enough to plant out
(when its roots fill a 5" pot) keep it indoors in good but indirect light and use an
acid fertilizer such as 'Miracid'.
