Phoenix Pygmy Date Palm, a new Riparium/Paludarium Plant

Riparium Supply has added a new selection to use as the palm element of planted ripariums. Pygmy Date Palm (Phoenix roebelenii) is native to riparian areas of Southern China, Laos and Vietnam. As a plant adapted to wet habitats, it roots very well in riparium planters. It is much smaller than most palms and its fine, feathery palm fronds blend well with other riparium foliage.
