Detailed care guides
The height of our plants are measured from the ground to the top.
Please note that the delivery height may vary 10%.
The diameter of our plants is the diameter of the nursery pot. We recommend a decorative pot with a diameter that’s larger.
Plants are natural products and therefore almost certainly differ from product photos. These characteristics make plants extra special and unique. Plants are not exactly the same size as shown.
Toxic to pets
The Caryota Mitis originates from Asia. In nature, the Caryota Mitis can grow up to 12 metres high!
The plant owes its nickname, Fishtail Palm, to the shape of its leaves.
The Caryota Mitis prefers to grow in a spot with semi-shade. If the plant grows very slowly, you can move it to a place with more indirect light.
Make sure that the soil of the Caryota Mitis is always slightly moist. Usually once a week watering is enough. Please note! The darker the location for the Caryota Mitis, the less water the plant will use.
Does the Caryota Mitis suffer from withered leaves at the bottom of the plant? No problem! The plant lets its older leaves die off to grow new leaves.
