Soil requirements:

Likes a sandy wet soil. In the wild it can be found thriving in swamps.

Sun requirements:

Likes full sun, it can be grown in less than that but for ideal growth, full sun is a must.

A very nice clumping fan palm. It gives a nice tropical look to a garden and does not require a lot of care. It serves well in blocking a view or filling in an area.
