Fan palm trees have an amazing appearance. Their (usually) green leaves often grow large in size and will create an exotic feeling. The popularity of this type of palm tree increases every year.

Fan palm trees are palm trees with hand-shaped lobbed leaves. The big difference compared to feather palm trees is that the leaves are circular shaped. Fan palm trees can be found in deserts, but also in completely opposite places, such as the Himalayas.
It generally is important to keep the soil of a fan palm sufficiently moist, without drowning the roots. A general rule of thumb: water the plant every 5-6 days in summer. In winter, this is every 10 days. Dig around 5-10 cm in the soil - the soil should be moist. If it is (too) wet, or dry, change the watering habit.
Most fan palm trees prefer a sufficient amount of sun light. They can grow well indoors too, for example in front of a window at the southern side of your house. They can be placed in full sun when outdoors. Do keep in mind that not every palm tree is equally hardy. Some are not (completely) hardy, so protect them against (severe) frosts.
