The Nikau enjoy's New Zealand's hot Summer and temperatures over 40⁰ Centigrade. Nikau Palms are not frost tolerant and will not endure temperatures below 5⁰ Centigrade, this is why few Nikau Palms survive altitudes above 1000 Meters.
Sorry I deleted this, but I dont think it's true. It never gets above 40⁰ in NZ, and is often below 5⁰. Dougalc 01:08, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
Could someone who knows please add information about the timeline for this plant. When does trunk formation start? When does it first set fruit? How long do they live? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 00:57, 11 October 2014 (UTC)
