The (Chinese) Windmill Palm, or Chusan Palm, has a single trunk-like stem covered with brown fibres and a whorl of fan-shaped, narrow, dark green leaves at the crown.
Trachycarpus fortunei is a fabulous tropical palm, very resilient and adaptable to all conditions. It works really well to create a tropical mood with other houseplants such as Banana or the Swiss Cheese Plant.
Grow with the flow! Influence the size of this plant by altering its location. High sun = Short and stout. Lots of shade = Tall and narrow.
Feeling hot, hot, hot! The Windmill Palm is one of the palms that can handle some full sun. Providing direct early morning and late afternoon sunlight will increase growth rate.
Wave goodbye to the dry! A common problem with this palm is its tips drying out and turning brown. Mist frequently or place in a high humid environment away from frequent traffic.
