Pritchardia thurstonii - Lau Fan Palm

This listing is for a pack of 20 seeds of this medium sized palm.

Pritchardia thurstonii is type of fan palm. It is endemic to Fiji, in particular the Lau Islands. It is threatened by habitat loss.

It is sometimes known as the Thurston's Palm or the Lau Fan Palm.  It will ultimately grow to be 6 or 7 metres tall, though being in a pot will restrict this.  It carries large fan shaped leaves with many folds (up to 70).  The leaves are covered with a layer of wax which provides the plant with protection from desiccation caused by salt laden air and high winds.  The flowers are produced on a long stalk up to 1.8 metres long that arches below the foliage.  The fruit ripens to a deep red-purple.

It makes an ideal house plant, unlikely to out grow its position and very tolerant of draughts (unlike many palms) and a degree of neglect.  It only requires a well lit position and regular watering.  It makes a good subject for offices and thoroughfares.

It can be grown outside in summer in temperate areas once the night time lows are above 7 Deg C.  It cannot stand frost at all, so is only suitable for permanent outdoor culture in Zone 11 and above.

Easy to germinate from seed, it will grow quite fast intially, slowing down when older.
