Regular price £220.00
Decorative pot not included. Hand-delivery calculated at checkout.

Licuala Grandis, the ruffled fan palm, is native to Vanuatu, a small island nation in the Pacific. This rare and beautiful palm is prized for its fans which fold out like an old traditional one you would keep yourself cool with on a hot day. 

Grown by one of our specialist growers these palms are sizeable specimens and have substantial root systems. As they like moist but not soggy soil, we recommend regular watering in the growing months. 

Best space & place
Bright indirect light is this palms best friend. Direct sun scorches the delicate leaves. It can handle a little shade. 

When to water & feed
Keep the soil moist but not soggy to keep the palm looking good. Light misting can keep the leaves fresh.

Need to know
The fans are paper-like and extremely delicate and easily tear. The tips naturally brown but can be trimmed.
