    This majestic, large palm is a close relative of the magnificent Copernicia baileyana and Copernicia fallaensis. It is native to coastal eastern Cuba, where it grows in savanna and dry woodlands at low elevations. It forms a very thick and sturdy, smooth, slightly ventricose, whitish gray trunk that can reach about 20 m (67 ft.) tall. The trunk supports a dense, stiffly ascending crown of numerous very rigid, wedge-shaped, bluish green leaves with broad petioles. Even though very rarely seen in cultivation, it is best suited to tropical climates and will also succeed in some warm temperate regions. The leaves of C. gigas may be coated with a light to moderate layer of wax. This waxy coat might give a silvery sheen to the leaves but not as silver as some C. fallaensis. When young, the leaves may be very upright and might look similar to a very large C. rigida with very long petioles.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
