Wettinia are lovely South American palms with beautiful dark green foliage.
Wettinia aequalis, from Ecuador and Colombia, is a solitary species, 6
to 8m tall, with stilt roots and a handsome crown of horizontally spreading,
dark, glossy leaves. The attractive seeds are easy and fast to germinate,
and the resultant young plants can make very unusual interior specimens.
It is an excellent palm for the wet tropics or subtropics.
