Traveller's Palm (Ravenala madagascariensis)

This species of plant is from Madagascar and is part of the Bird of Paradise family and not a true palm. Ravenala madagascariensis is the sole member of the genus Ravenala, It has been given the name "traveller's palm" because the sheaths of the stems hold rainwater, which supposedly could be used as an emergency drinking supply for needy travellers. The plant requires a sunny spot (not full sun until it is larger). This produces better growth and foliage. The plant grows to an average height of 7 m (23 ft) and requires moderate water.
