The Footstool Palm is a one-of-a-kind and lovely houseplant that can add a touch of nature to any space. Due to its attractive, large, round leaves and low maintenance requirements, it is a popular plant for outdoor and indoor container plants.
The Footstool Palm, also known as Livistona rotundifolia, is a palm tree native to Northern Australia and Southeast Asia. Because of its attractive, fan-shaped leaves and slow growth rate, it is a popular choice for indoor or outdoor landscaping.
Look for a plant with long, slender stems and large, round leaves that grow in a circular pattern around the stem to identify a Footstool Palm. The leaves are usually a dark green color with a glossy appearance. The plant can reach heights of up to 30 ft (9 m) in the wild, but it will typically stay smaller when grown in a container. With proper care, it can thrive and bring a tropical touch to any space.
