The story of
Phoenix Roebelinii, originated from Southeast Asia, is a popular ornamental plant that grows in tropical and subtropical climate areas. It is a small to medium sized, slowly growing, slender tree that can reach a height of 2-3 meters. The leaves are 60 to 120 cm long with up to 100 leaves on a single stem. The plant itself is also very popular and can often be seen in living rooms. This palm is also called Dwarf Date Palm.
Shape of a fan
Sheep as natural Roebelinii mowers
Roebelinii initially grows as a young plant in a tunnel box (mesh box) before being replanted outside in open fields.
Our supplier’s farm houses a herd of over 700 sheep. In addition to being fed with the foliage waste, these are also natural lawn mowers and contribute to the production of organic compost. So no pesticides need to be used. Sheep improve the soil and thus the quality of the foliage, while also providing a source of meat at a low cost to the workers.
From field to bouquet
After the harvest, the production workers put the Roebelinii leaves in water to hydrate. They are then washed, sorted, cut and bundled into sleeves. Finally, the bunches are packed in boxes to be shipped to us by sea container. The products are imported by us on a weekly basis and are available all year round.
We supply Roebelinii in different sizes: 50, 60 and 80 cm are the common sizes. Longer leaves from 90 cm to 120 cm are also available, but in limited quantities. The palm leaves are very sturdy, yet bendable. It is nice to bring ‘movement’ into a bouquet. This fan-shaped leaf moves the moment you give the bouquet away. How beautiful is that?
