Fan Palm (aka Livistona rotundifolia)

  • Location:

    I am a member of the palm family from the tropical and subtropical rainforests of SE Asia, Australia and the Horn of Africa
  • Looks:

    I have large fan shaped leaves made up of green finger like leaves
  • Height:

    I can grow up to 2m tall indoors
  • Environment:

    I prefer a warm spot with filtered light
  • Flowers:

    I don't have flowers
  • Grooming:

    I need little grooming; try not to brush past the tips of my leaves as this could damage them
  • Life Span:

    I can last a really long time, if looked after properly. Plant me up each year into a bigger pot to see me grow
  • Feeding:

    Don’t let my soil dry out, but equally don’t let me sit in water. Mist me once a week
  • Fact:

    My shiny leaves reflect sunlight - for this reason Malaysians use me as a natural parasol with built-in climate control
