Fishtail palm is known for its large, doubly compound leaves, which can measure more than 8 feet long. It has a beautiful texture with its fan-shape individual leaflets, resembling a giant fishtail. Fishtail palms grow best in moist soil, but they tolerate dry conditions quite well. This palm bears light green leaves that turn deeper green in partial shade.
Fishtail palm grows well indoors if you have a large, bright spot.
