I have two seedlings from a specimen on lapalma in the canaries in august2013. They both have their first strap leaf but im at a loss for cultivation info any help would be greatly recieved can they go out for the summer?
Inside they will require a bright & warm spot & appreciate a high level of humidity. Don't allow them to dry out completely, but don't over water either. They can go outside for the summer but keep them in a shady spot as they will scorch if placed directly into the sun. You may be able to acclimatise them to full sun but by the time you have done it it will be time to bring them back indoors again lol

Well done with those, Philip. The seedling stage of these is a little precarious unless they have ideal conditions. Nathan's advice is spot on. You can take just a few more liberties with an established plant. I could never find a big enough one to bring back from my regular visits to the Canaries. Now, of course, you can't bring anything back from there without the appropriate certificate.
