Livistona benthamii - Fan Palm - Fresh Seeds

Availability: In stock

Pack of 5 seeds.

Originating from the Northern Territories in Australia, this is an adaptable fan palm, being found in both dry and wet (rainforests) locations

The leaves are deeply divided, dark glossy green and armed with spines.  Adult plants produce flowering 'stems' carrying many hundreds of flowers, which are followed by clusters of fruit each containing a round black seed.  Ultimately capable of reaching 10 metres or more in height, pot culture will restrict it to more managable proportions

The tree prefers a semi-shaded location and grows best in a free draining soil.  Not particularly hardy, coming from it does from sub-tropical/tropical areas, it is best grown as a pot plant for an airy, well lit location.

Very easy from seed by following the instructions provided with which I have successfully germinated 1000's of palm seeds.
