Smile I would also consider it a rare palm tree

Fiji Fan palms are not as distinguished as the rest of the palm trees, it is not sold in huge amounts and therefore cost more since they are not sold in volume, know what i mean.

Smile They are definately cool looking palm trees..

Do you have any pictures of it and where did you place it? I heard they are real finnicky? Is that true?

Something to do with constant yellowing and fertilizer..

Default Yes they are considered some what rare.

Like the Ruffled Fan palm, both are hard to find. But if you do find them, They are keepers and they do take up a bit more maintenance but worth it.

Default I bought a fiji for about 300 one time so 200 is not so bad.

It all depends on the quality of the specimen. It's like a ferrari or a chrysler. SUre they both get the job done but which one looks better and was made better.
