The Cardboard Palm is an ideal indoor plant, providing a stunning decorative addition. The Cardboard Palm is easy to grow and resilient against some neglect. Although known as a Palm this plant is actually a Cycad, with a Palm/Fern appearance. Its evergreen leaves grow in pairs of up to 12 per stem, and its fronds have tight leaflets giving the plant a fern-like appearance. The circular crowns of leaves resemble fern or palm fronds and these can feel a little fuzzy when rubbed (sometimes referred to as a cardboard texture). Cardboard Palms are ideal for use in a bright indoor position, such as an office or conservatory setting. They also make for ideal container or bedding plants for use outdoors. The Cycas is salt resistant and ideal for coastal gardens. Said to be a living fossil plant, around since the time of dinosaurs, this stunning plant is ideal for bringing some nature inside.
