|Synonymy: Unknown||Distribution: South America|
|Common names: Wettinia palm||Conservation status: Unknown|
High altitude South American palm from heavy rainfall areas; unbelievably beautiful when viewed in their
wet and steep mountain habitat. In cultivation they require humidity, plenty of water and a rich soil. Not
the easiest of palms to grow but if you like a challenge, the result is well worth the effort.
