One of my favorites. Mine in pots have been fine but haven’t found the right spot yet to plant out.

Yup, stellar palm! Pretty fast growing as well, which is an added perk.

So Matt have you found a place for yours yet?  I put two into my garden and they seem to be adapting well.  Both were 3 gallons and small when I got mine.  2 years 1 month in the ground from that 3 gallon pot and it's a totally different looking plant now.  You can actually see it's a Dypsis basilonga now.

Mine are doing well, probably helped it’s been pretty cool. I planted them in full sun around Easter and they’re plugging away (two tallest spears).

Thanks for bumping this thread Tracy. I just took these photos of one of mine yesterday as it was really standing out to me.

What is the best growing environment for this species?

How much sun do they desire?

Since no one else has stepped up with recommendations, I will share what is working for me.  Mine get summer mid-day sun for a couple of hours but filtered light most of the rest of the day, and full winter shade here in Leucadia.  Might they do better with more sun, I don't know but they definitely aren't burning with what I'm giving them.  My soil is very sandy so it's very well draining.  Hopefully some others can share regarding the "best growing enviornment" as opposed to just what they have tried and is working.
