It is found by rivers and in marshes. This palm has a robust trunk which grows quickly reaching a height of over 20 metres if in rich soil with plenty of water during its period of growth.

It is demanding as far as fertilizing and temperature are concerned. Its leaves easily turn yellow when magnesium and other microelements are not absorbed correctly.

Where the climate is dry it grows better in semi shade.
