Pritchardia grandis, also known as the Hawaiian Fan Palm, is a species of palm tree that is native to Hawaii. It is a popular ornamental plant, prized for its large, fan-shaped leaves and attractive appearance.
Here are some care tips for Pritchardia grandis:
Light: Pritchardia grandis prefers bright, indirect light but can also tolerate some direct sunlight. Keep it in a spot where it receives at least 4-6 hours of bright, indirect light per day.
