This fleshy trunk serves as a water reservoir in times of drought. When the plant is young, the fronds appear to rise directly from the ground.Cardboard Palm Tree only looks like a palm. It s a Cycad native to Mexico and is much easier to please indoors than a real palm because of its tolerance of dry air.
