As the same suggests, the European fan palm is the only palm that originally comes from Europe. From the sunny countries surrounding the Mediterranean sea, that is. Whether these origins caused its dwarf size (as compared to palms from other continents), is hard to tell. What we do know, is that its compacts size makes the palm ideal for balconies or terraces. All year round, since the Chamaerops Humilis can withstand both cold temperatures and direct sunlight. However, be careful not to place the plant in direct sunlight immediately. It’s best to let the plant get used to it gradually to prevent the leaves from getting burnt. If a leaf got burnt anyhow, it’s nothing to worry about. The palm will then create a new leaf that is more sun-proof. Be sure to keep the potting soil humid, by regularly giving the European fan palm small amounts of water.
The classic terracotta pot included with the European fan palm is ideal to create more warmth in your interior.

Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
