Fan palms have very large leaves resembling a fan on very sturdy stems.
LIGHT: They like to be in a bright area but no direct sunlight. Fan palms are very pest resistant.

Fan Palms are a slow grower even under ideal conditions. They are generally wider than they are tall and are a good plant to use if you need to fill a large space.
Because of their size, they are best shown off if they are grown in a larger pot. They are often available in 10" pots.
