An exotic, low maintenance houseplant. The Livistona chinensis is easy to care for. It has beautiful foliage sure to liven up any indoor jungle.
Water regularly during warmer months but allow the soil to dry out between each watering and make sure the roots are never sitting in water for a prolonged period. Water less frequently during colder months.
Best grown in bright but indirect light conditions to keep the plant healthy but can survive 2-3 metres away from a window. May suffer if the plant receives too much direct sunlight. A lack of light can lead to leggy stems / low growth rate / loss of some leaves.
Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows
Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust
Prune out any brown leaves or stems by cutting as close to the next stem or the base of the plant as possible
Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth)
