With its huge jagged-edged circular leaves growing from a single trunk, the Australian Fan Palm will make a beautiful statement to your indoor or outdoor area. Preferring a shaded position in the garden, this palm will also grow well in pots and containers making it a spectacular addition to your courtyard or patio.
When the weather is dry and hot, mist spray the foliage several times a day. This will keep it cool and help deter pests. The soil should be moist but not wet. A good way to test the soil is to poke your finger into the top inch, if it's dry then water it. Palms love being taken outside regularly as it helps prevent pests, diseases and encourages photosynthesis.
