Distribution & Habitat:
Lowland rainforest of Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama.
A truly spectacular plant, the most immediately noticable thing about them is their unnaturely large leaflets, up to 50cm long, and 15cm wide, corrugated, and a lovely glossy green. The leaves can be up 2m long, on a trunk which can grow to 2m high.
A very much sought after plant by collectors for obvious reasons.
An understory rainforest plant, so it likes warmth, humidity and shade.
