Native to China and regions in Laos and Vietnam, it grows most notably in large numbers along the banks of the Mekong River. Its habitat is most frequently associated with riverside or cliff habitats where it grows as a rheophyte – an aquatic or semi aquatic plant that is adapted to living in fast moving water currents.
It has become a much desired indoor plant because of how, unlike other members of the Phoenix genus, it is incredibly well adapted to being kept indoors. It’s slow growing nature makes it perfectly suited for keeping indoors without outgrowing its space.
Care & Size Guidance
If slowly acclimatised to full sun, Phoenix roebelenii enjoys a spell outside during the frost free months.
Whilst in the wild it can grow to an impressive 7 metres tall, its maximum height indoors is around 3 metres tall. However, it’s very slow growing and unlikely to reach such a height inside your home.
