Licuala grandis


This is a single trunked palm with large dark green undivided leaves that appear pleated giving it the common name “the ruffled fan palm”. It is sensitive to cold and requires lots of moisture, a filtered light location and regular fertilization. The leaves get to about 3 feet across and the palm to about 10 feet in height. Indoors could be a problem for lack of humidity but on a patio or in a shady understory location a colony of three or more could truly be exquisite.
