The Phoenix Roebelenii is a palm endemic to Southeast Asia, more specifically it is native to China, Laos and Vietnam. Although we have introduced this palm by its scientific name, it is also known by the common name of "dwarf palm" or "pygmy palm". It receives this name because it is really a dwarf palm, which does not reach more than 5 meters in height, but normally its trunk does not usually measure more than 1 meter in height.
It is characterized by having pinnate leaves (which is composed of leaflets inserted on either side of the appendage of the leaf of a plant by which the stem is attached and arranged at right angles to a central axis), with short segments , flexible and bright green. This palm tree produces flowers through its inflorescence, giving some small yellow flowers, having this flowering in summer.
The maintenance of this plant is very simple, it only requires an area with sun and if we have it both in a pot and planted in the garden, we just have to make sure that the water drains correctly.
