Satake Palm Overview

Satakentia liukiuensis is the sole species in the genus Satakentia, and is considered of great ornamental and landscape value, particularly as an isolated specimen. It can be cultivated in tropical and humid subtropical climate zones in full sun, but requires slightly shaded growth in its early stages, and richly-organic, perfectly draining soil.
