Also known as the Table Palm or Fan Palm. Livistona rotundifolia is a very attractive and elegant palm with large, shiny, fan shaped leaves and thorny stems.

The Footstool Palm adapts to indoor living extremely well, being undemanding and tolerating some degree of neglect. Brown leaf tips are commonplace and are often trimmed back by the growers to maintain a greener look.

The Footstool Palm is smaller than most other palms, but can still grow up to 2m indoors and will certainly add a tropical, green element to your living space.

Horty Hints

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.

Remove any brown leaves to encourage healthy growth. The thorns on the spine are sharp, so take care when handling or wear gloves.

If brown tips do develop, trim as required but avoid cutting into any fresh green foliage as this will cause more browning near the cut.
