11 2 ish gal Livistona Chinensis (Chinese Fan Palm)

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

Today I bought “one” 3 gal Livistona Chinensis from HD and they managed to find a way to cram 14 into a single pot which... well that’s something else. 

I gently separated them all and I have to say for the most part there was minimal root loss, but since I can’t promise anyone these are in the best of shape, I’d like to offer them for free. I kept my three fav out of the bunch and they are now potted individually. I just can’t bring myself to toss the rest of them since they are really healthy looking little fellas and if someone with the space and the patience was looking to line a long driveway with them or something, they would look really nice in a few years. 

I live in the Orlando area so if someone would like to pick them up they will be 100% free, but I am also willing to ship if you cover shipping. They would be shipped USPS priority with moist soil wrapped in foil around their roots  

They are presently laid into a nursery pot with their roots loosely covered in moist soil and placed in a shaded area. I’ll keep them like this as long as they last, but I definitely am not interested in keeping this many of this species so if I can’t find any takers by the time they start to keel over I’ll have to toss them. 

Pictures are below:

I did that a couple of years ago with 7 in a pot, but holy cow!  14 crammed into a single pot?  :D  Good job!

It was really an experience. Haha I can’t imagine what those would look like if left to grow in the ground and planted as they were in the pot. 

It did make me consider buying these as they restock them and flipping them on eBay for $15 a pop, haha. Only for a moment though... I don’t have that much space left between the palms I actually plan to keep, haha.

Another option is to plant them as a ground cover.  I've seen that done in a commercial planting in Florida somewhere before.  Looked pretty cool - they don't grow fast and the leaves are big and stay parallel with the ground for a long time.  Of course I wonder what was done with them when they started growing vertical...

It’s a good thing that some unsuspecting homeowner didn’t plant a 14 headed Livistona clump.
