Caryota zebrina
 Caryota sp.
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Solitary Fishtail Palm, Toddy Palm, Jaggery Palm, Wine Palm, Kitul
Origin: India, Myanmar (Burma), Sri Lanka
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPalm or palm-like

Monocarpic palm exhibiting an erect single trunk, up to 98 ft tall, bearing ringed scars left by fallen leaves. The trunk reaches its maximum height before bloom. Leaves are 9 to 20 ft long. Flowers are unisexual on monoecious plants, alternating on apical, branched inflorescences, enveloped by 2 carinate, marginally fibrous spathes. Fruits, as large as cherries, are globose and reddish. Blooms appear from top to lower branches, and after the last bloom on the lowest level the palm dies. The sap of this palm is very high in simple sugars. In India and other Asian countries, the palm is tapped for its syrup which is often fermented into an alcoholic beverage called toddy. The syrup is also processed into a granular sugar called jaggery.

Chamaedorea metallica, Parlor Palm, Miniature Fishtail Palm

Click to see full-size image Chamaedorea metallica
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Parlor Palm, Miniature Fishtail Palm
Origin: Mexico, Central and South America
Large shrub 5-10 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliagePalm or palm-likeSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The popular and much loved metallic palm is the only palm that has foliage with a dark metallic blue green sheen like the color of gunmetal. This single stemmed palm has leaves in the shape of a chalice or fishs tail being simple, undivided and notched at the tip. Chamaedorea metallica occurs naturally in thick wet forests along the Atlantic slope and lowland rainforests of Mexico. Thrives in moist, humus rich soil and is tolerant of alkaline limestone soils. Naturally undemanding for nutrients, metallic palm responds very well to regular applications of palm fertilizer. Metallic palm grows naturally in the understory of dense forests, and is tolerant of deep shade and low light conditions. Grows well outdoors in deep shade or medium-bright light. As a houseplant, it thrives with 10-12 hours/day of artificial light. Hardiness: USDA Zones 9 - 12. Mature and established plants have been reported to tolerate temperatures down to 28ºF for four days with no leaf damage.

Naturally tolerant of low light conditions, metallic palms are perfect for understory plantings and ideal as houseplants. Metallic palm stands out as a small accent plant due to its remarkable metallic evergreen foliage that provides spectacular backdrop for flowering plants in shade gardens. The metallic palm also will grow beautifully on the eastern side of a house where it will get little or no sunlight.
