Chinese Fan Palm, aka Livistona chinensis or Fountain Palm, is a slow-growing palm that has large fronds which arch over and fan out, reaching up to 6 ft. across in the prime growing conditions of their tropical habitats. They are vibrant green in colour with an accordion-like texture, growing in an upright growth habit on long, slender stems that are slightly serrated. If you’ve got a big sunny window, this palm will feel right at home!

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Make sure to shower off your plant every once in a while as the large leaves can pick up dust easily which can make them prone to spider mites. In addition to this, try not to repot your plant too often as they are slow-growers and disrupt their fragile roots more often than is necessary.

Care Guide

How to take care of Chinese Fan Palm

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.
