Licuala Grandis, the ruffled fan palm, is a species of palm tree native to Vanuatu, an island nation in the Pacific near Australia. Licuala grandis is an excellent palm for growing inside in the UK because it enjoys lower light than most other palms. It's also slow-growing and looks beautiful with large elegant fan-shaped leaves.
Our tip for the Grandis Palm is to go big! They look wonderful when established and well worth the extra cost. Like most houseplants, it will thrive if you treat it a little bit mean. Water sparingly and give it some space to grow and you will be rewarded with a wonderful specimen plant.
