Voanioala gerardii

Re: Voaniola gerardii

So far, the Forrest Coconut grows well in pots here in the nursery.( South Florida) I have one that's been planted close to 3 years at my house and although it looks good, it's growing very slow. I'm convinced now that it get's too much shade, and would probably do better with at least a half a day of sun.

I did get to see 2 large specimens growing in Madagascar while there, but they were not in habitat, but growing on private land. These were out in full sun.
