Link to this plant: https://toptropicals.com/catalog/uid/licuala_sp.htm

This understory palm has very large, nearly completely circular, pleated, deep green leaves on long, dainty petioles that are so geometric in shape, they barely look real. This is the magnificent and much desired, entire-leaved variety of Licuala peltata, one of the most beautiful species. It is a moderately sized palm with usually only a short trunk, and its crown holds as many as 15 huge, flat, undivided fan leaves up to 7 ft in diameter! Native of Thailand and Malaysia, this species is much more tolerant of cool conditions than nearly any other Licuala and it will thrive in subtropical and tropical conditions and possibly even in protected spots in some frost-free, warm temperate climes, of course always out of the wind. This collectible palm is one of the most ornamental and prized.
RECOMMENDED FERTILIZER: Purple Palm Food - Smart Release Palm Booster.

Licuala ramsayi var. Tuckerii - Australian Fan Palm

Click to see full-size image

Very rare palm, much desired by collectors, the Australian Fan Palm likes a rainforest situation. A shady position and plenty of moisture is all what is needed to grow Licuala ramsayi successfully. This is one of the most cold tolerant of the Licualas, but is still a tropical/sub-tropical plant, and definitely not frost hardy. As a youngster it prefers quite heavy shade, but its an emergent plant so adults are sun-hardy. It is a very slow grower, but its still a highly desirable plant for a warm shady nook.This item is not certified for shipping to California.
