Fishtail Palm, Burmese Fishtail Palm, Clustering Fishtail Palm
Few palms can evoke the tropical forests of Southeast Asia quite like Caryota mitis. The triangular fronds are held in a rather upright fashion, as if they are fish tails sliding back down into the water.
Each new frond emerges a fresh, light green before darkening to a pleasing emerald shade, and each new leaf is bigger than the last until they reach approximately 3 metres in length!

Care & Size Guidance
Well suited to most indoor situations, the Fishtail Palm is a rarely-seen plant that deserves a wider audience.
Although these plants can eventually get large, they are fairly slow growing so will not need to be potted up for several years.
Water regularly during the warmer months, but hold off a little in winter. Feed regularly with a palm fertiliser to encourage faster and healthier growth.
