Description for Latania lontaroides

Latania lontaroides or red latan palm Grows on cliffs and in coastal ravines, in the Mascarene archipelago but is now found only on the island of La Réunion, where it occurs on the coast between Petite Ile and Saint-Philippe where its habitat is also shrinking, the species was once common.

The red palm latan can reach 12 m height but grows quite slowly. The mature trunk is gray, smooth and slightly swollen at the base. It measures up to 25 cm in diameter and exhibits rings which are the scars of fallen leaves.

The leaves are fan shaped, red with red petiole the first years, later green. The edges of the leaf and the main leaf veins are finely toothed. The leaves are stiff and worn by a petiole of 1-1.5 m long. They form a crown of 5-6 m in diameter. Editing by edric.

Planting and care

  • Palms grow in some very extreme situations
  • Do not position spotlights too closely because this generates too much heat for the palm to withstand. Finally, lighting the plant from below can cast shadows onto opposite walls and even the ceiling.
  • most popular palm plants are pretty adaptable. They can handle a winter rest in cooler conditions, not less than 50 F. (10 C.).
  • They do tolerate central heating. They prefer light, but not strong light and especially when they are young.
  • They do not like drafts and sudden changes in temperature. Some of them, though, prefer a regular slight drop in temperature at night.
  • Palms grow best when you let their roots fill the pot. They need soil-based potting compost and should not be repotted unnecessarily.
  • They are sensitive to chemicals and will be damaged if you expose them to aerosol sprays. If you need to treat them with insecticides, be sure what you use is suitable for a palm.
  • Because many palms are grown to a great height in tropical climates, a grower needs to know the plants matured height before buying.
  • Grown indoors and potted correctly they will grow to approximately 3 ft- 8 ft in height, making it a good idea to plan where the plant will reside, based on the space needed.
  • Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
    Palm s prefer partial shade (or partial with some sunlight), as they are more than happy in low-light conditions. Loamy soil/ Sandy soil/ Soil with a pH range of 6.5 to 8.0 Keep soil moist throughout the growing season, They can handle a winter rest in cooler conditions, not less than 50 F. (10 C.). They do tolerate central heating. Feed your palm regularly during the growing season. If possible, use a palm fertilizer, which will contain all the micro nutrients and extra potassium and manganese. Potassium deficiency is especially common in palms—it shows up in yellowing or brownish fronds.

    Caring for Latania lontaroides

    • Palms grow best when you let their roots fill the pot.
    • They need soil-based potting compost and should not be repotted unnecessarily.
    • They are sensitive to chemicals and will be damaged if you expose them to aerosol sprays.
    • If you need to treat them with insecticides, be sure what you use is suitable for a palm.

    Typical uses of Latania lontaroides

    Special features: Palms tend to lend themselves to creating shadows and reflections. You can stand a palm in an alcove that is lined with a mirror and create stunning effects. If you put one on each side of a fireplace, its even doubly stunning. The shadows cast by the palms fronds can pattern a plain wall. Spotlights can create good strong light for bold shadows.

    These are quite dramatic. Dont position spotlights too closely because this generates too much heat for the palm to withstand. Finally, lighting the plant from below can cast shadows onto opposite walls and even the ceiling.

    Ornamental use: NA
