Chusan Palm

Before talking about palmspear let us talk about what they actually are. Trachycarpus fortunei also known as chusan palm, Windmill Palm or Chinese Windmill Palm belongs to plant family Arecaceae. This palm is native to China, Burma and northern India. Being the hardiest palm it can withstand the cold weather and even in moist summers. Now it is widely cultivated in gardens, parks and homes throughout the world. This palm can grow everywhere but still if you grow them in a well- drained soil as well as partly shady and partly sunny place where no wind reaches.

It will grow really best in wild as it reaches a height of 12m but its indoor growth is slowly and reaches a maximum height of 2m only. Trachycarpus fortunei is an evergreen plant. It has hardy, green and fan shaped leaves. The young leaves are pleated and covered with light brown hair. When they grow old these brown hairs are gone and the pleated leaves divided into pliant segments which reaches a length of 12 inches and can be wide around 1 inch.

More mature leaves can be 24 inches wide which are dark green in color. With the passage of time these leaves turn yellow then brown but they simply do not fall off rather they have to be cut down and used in different productive ways. Getting yellow of brown is not a sign of any illness as this is a natural process of aging. Although this plant is evergreen and grown indoors because of its beauty it still ages with the passage of time and some of its leaves turn brown,

So the question is how can we use these brown leaves in different productive ways?
