Succeeds in most fertile moist but well-drained soils in a sheltered sunny position. Tolerant of poor dry soils. Plants from the north of its range tolerate several degrees of frost if they are growing in a dry sunny climate. Palms usually have deep penetrating root systems and generally establish best when planted out at a young stage. However, older plants are substantially more cold tolerant than juvenile plants.
In areas at the limit of their cold tolerance, therefore, it is prudent to grow the plants in containers for some years, giving them winter protection, and only planting them into their permanent positions when sheer size dictates. Palms can also often be transplanted even when very large. It is important to stake the plant very firmly to prevent rock, and also to give it plenty of water until re-established - removing many of the leaves can also help.

Good looking and very durable Brahea. However, it can take up a lot of room as it is one of the few Braheas that can sucker- some forms become huge thickets of palm trunks. This is an extremely variable palm varyling from small to large, single to multiple trunks- that is why all the synonyms. Some forms are so different, however, that it's hard for me to believe they really are the same species.
