    • Caryota obtusa is one of the most striking, spectacular and space-occupying palms one can grow, but it is a giant and needs plenty of room to 'spread its wings'.
    • This little known plant grows in wet forests the mountains of southern China from the foothills of the Himalayas eastwards to northernmost Vietnam, where it seems to be associated with limestone outcrops.
    • While it exhibits the same general habit as the C. obtusa from India and Thailand, it is altogether smaller in stature, forming a more slender and shorter trunk.
    • The few, magnificent, flat, large leaves are reminiscent of a giant tree fern.
    • The palm is commonly called giant fishtail palm or Thai giant caryota. It can reach 20 meters or more in height and is thus considered a tree. It is monocarpic meaning it flowers once, then dies. Its inflorescence can reach 6 meters or more in length.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
