A clump-forming, small, water-loving, alkaline soil tolerant, moderately fast growing, monoecious, forest understorey palm. Rare in cultivation, locally common in the wild. It has rough, brown stems, 1.5 m. (4.9 ft.) tall, 2 cm. (0.8 inch) diameter with no obvious leaf scars, and small segmented, palmate (fan) leaves, .2 m. (0.7 ft.) long, .2 m. (0.7 ft.) wide, green above and beneath.

This plant is suitable as a houseplant or conservatory plant.

Chuniophoenix nana can survive freezing temperatures to about -3.8°C (25°F), but freezing is best avoided. It naturally occurs in wet rainforest or seasonally wet forest in montane locations. In this type of natural environment temperature fluctuations are slight, and this palm prefers a constantly cool or mild climate with little temperature difference between day & night, and Summer & Winter. Under extreme freezing conditions we recommend you keep this palm as dry as possible, and well wrapped up.
