A common sight in the parlour of well-to-do Victorians - it is still very much in fashion - and now within the reach of us all.

This Madagascan palm with its green fronds and golden base brings the jungle feel to any home. Fantastic in a bright large family bathroom as it adores moisture.

Best space & place

Bright but indirect light Full sun will scorch the leaves. Keep indoors all year.

When to water & feed

Water freely when in growth, keeping the soil moist, but not soggy. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser two or three times during the growing season. Reduce watering in winter. 
 
Need to know

The leaves can consume a lot of moisture and so it is a very good idea to mist at home - in the nursery we regularly spray overhead. The base of the stems harden as the palm ages and mottle slightly with black spots, this is perfectly natural.
