Fishtail Palm | Caryota mitis | Large Floor Plant
The Fishtail Palm originates from Southeast Asia and India. The fish-shaped leaves are unique and are what gives this palm their name.
(Including Nursery Pot)
10" Nursery Pot: 30" H x 20" W
Prefers medium to bright, filtered or indirect light. These palms will tolerate almost any light conditions, however, direct light should be avoided.
Water and Soil
This Palm prefers its top layer of soil to dry between waterings, meaning it should never be overly wet or too dry. A standard well draining potting soil works just fine for this palm.
Temperature and Humidity
Prefers temperatures between 65 degrees F and 80 degrees F. Although it can sometimes tolerate colder temperatures, don't let temperatures fall below 50 degrees F as this may damage foliage. Does well at standard household humidity levels but does benefit from occasional misting for additional humidity.
