Sir William Hooker, one of the ex directors of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew Gardens and historical botanical explorer, reported seeing one such specimen in the wild attain a height of 2.1 m (7 ft). The weight was estimated at 365 kg. This plant will live for approx. 70 years in cultivation, if it is looked after properly,
