Description

The Chinese fan palm (Livistona Chinensis) is a durable tree that derives its other common name (fountain palm) from the way the leaves spill down from the crown. Though native only to eastern Asia, these specimens have naturalized across the world because of their adaptability and toughness. In fact, in parts of Florida, the Chinese fan palm is considered an invasive species. Unlike many other palms, the Chinese fan palm can tolerate cold and drought, making it a good outdoor palm for those who don’t live in the tropical heat most palms require. At its peak, the Chinese fan palm can reach 30 to 40 feet tall, but in cultivation, it is kept much smaller and many gardeners grow them inside as potted houseplants. The Chinese fan palm is a good palm for beginners because of its hardiness. The leaves of the Chinese fan palm grow in circular, segmented fans with spines that gradually disappear as the trees mature. These wide and attractive leaves can range from a deep green to bluish-green.

Sunlight – Chinese fan palms grow best in full sun to partial shade, meaning at least four hours of direct sunlight on most days.

Watering – Lightly moist but not soggy soil is ideal for Chinese fan palms. Overwatering can cause root rot and other diseases, which can ultimately kill the plant.

Plant Care – Fertile soil will promote faster and healthier growth on these palms. Apply a palm fertilizer from late winter to early fall, following label instructions.
