Wink well...

The lipstick palm requires alot of attention, unless you have the perfect environment. it needs a very warm, humid, and wet climate in order to flourish and some people don't want to take the time to recreate that environment. hence, its an exotic palm because of its needs.

hopefully that helped

Default meltheaussie is correct

There is a fungus living in the lipstick palm that is dormant until it reaches a certain temperature. So you must live some where that never goes under 60 degrees F. so if you have in a pot, you can put inside when it gets cold out but remember they are sensitive so lighting must be sufficient. Let me tell you its worth it, in my opinion.

Default I thought you were talking about a different fungus

The fungus that i think your thinking about is Mycorrhizal Fungi which creates thicker root balls which in turn create more processed nutrients to the plant which turns into a better looking plant. It's like natural steriods for plants.
