Livistona rotundifolia (Palem sadeng)

The Livistona rotundifolia palm is a real eye-catcher with its graceful, fan-shaped leaves. As a houseplant it purifies the air, thereby aiding in the prevention of all kinds of health issues. It owes its nickname “Fan palm” to this trait. The plant is originally from the tropical and subtropical rain forests of Asia and Australia and belongs to the palm family. This family has no fewer than 4000 species! This palm remains fairly compact, so at home you can always find a nice spot for it. In terms of care, the Livistona rotundifolia is quite low in maintenance. If you place it indoor, make sure you place the plant in a light spot, clear from direct sunlight. Furthermore, the plant prefers a moist potting soil and environment. So, make sure that you keep the soil slightly moist by regularly giving small amounts of water. This way you also prevent the potting soil from getting too wet, which can cause root rot.
