This is the favourite plant for butterflies. They lay eggs and the new caterpillars feast on the leaves of this palm.You have to keep a watch since these caterpillars have a voracious appetite. It is also very difficult to notice any pests and only on close watch can one recognize these cocoons. On maturing the larvae make a cocoon and then are stagnant for many days. The leaves will appear stuck at the edges and one can see the sticky substance that covers the edges of the leaves. But in the end it is worth the effort as beautiful butterfly comes out and flies, it is a feeling of great joy to see anew life in nature, God's creation, so beautiful and good, who teaches the butterfly to fly?
This palm tree does not require much care and watering can be done like any other plant. This can tolerate intervals without watering for a few days and very good for people who do not have a green thumb!
