This is a show stopper palm! Almost all our customers comment on this palm and we don’t always have it. Easy to grow indoors and very unique! The fronds are rounded, fan-like, pleaded, and ruffled.

The Dirt

Native to Vanuatu, an island in the Pacific. Only a few fronds grow per year, slow growing but can reach up to 10ft tall outdoors, in its natural habitat. Usually does not grow more than 6ft indoors. Keep the soil moist but well-drained. Normal for the edges of the leaves to be slightly brown.

Part Sun

This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Water once a week. Before watering, feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.

Pet Toxic

Only when ingested it may cause mild oral and gastrointestinal upsetness. Keep out of reach from pets and small children.
