The Caryota Mitis has a special appearance and is an odd man out in its family, the palm tree. As an indoor plant, it does not bear much resemblance to it, but when you allow it to grow, its roots become recognisable. The plant originated in South-East Asia but nowadays it can be found in almost all tropical environments. This palm can grow to a height of up to 12 metres! Due to its slow growth this will not happen in your space. A funny nickname for this plant is the fishtail palm. This is due to its somewhat unusual leaves which resemble the tail of a fish.

The fishtail palm loves plenty of water. Make sure the soil is always moist but not soaked with water. Watering its fishtail will benefit the plant. It particularly likes this in winter when the air is a little drier, because the fishtail palm is, after all, a tropical plant.
