A solitary, medium sized, water-loving, moderately slow growing palm. Not known in cultivation, endangered in the wild. It has a smooth, grey-brown trunk, 7 m. (23 ft.) tall, 23 cm. (9 inch) diameter with persistent leaf-bases and spaced ring leaf scars, and large partially segmented, palmate (fan) leaves, 0.75 m. (2.5 ft.) long, 0.75 m. (2.5 ft.) wide, green above and, greyish green beneath.

Inflorescences 5-8, interfoliar, ascending to nearly spreading and ca. equaling subtending leaf and to 1.3 m long in flower, arching to pendulous and greatly exceeding the subtending leaf and to 2.8 m long in fruit. Fruits green 40 x 35 mm, ovoid-oblong, eventually likely turning dark brown to black.

Pritchardia bakeri can tolerate close to freezing conditions. But low temperatures are best avoided. This species naturally occurs on islands in moist low montane forest, and is heavily effected by the surrounding sea temperatures, which are constant and often form sea mist and cloud. In this type of natural environment temperature fluctuations are slight, and this palm prefers a constantly mild climate with little temperature difference between day & night, and Summer & Winter. Under extreme cold conditions we recommend you keep this palm as dry as possible, and well wrapped up.

Identification:
A new species segregated out from Pritchardia martii as having exceptionally long infructescences.
