The Fishtail palm, scientifically known as Caryota Mitis, is a tropical plant that belongs to the Arecaceae family. It is native to Southeast Asia and is commonly found in rainforests, swamps, and riverbanks. The plant is characterized by its unique leaves that resemble the shape of a fish's tail, hence the name Fishtail palm.

The Fishtail palm can grow up to 4 meters in height, but it is usually smaller when grown indoors. It has a slender trunk that is covered with brown fibers and is topped with a crown of leaves. The leaves are pinnate, meaning they are divided into smaller leaflets that grow in a feather-like pattern. The leaflets are dark green in color and have a glossy texture.

The Fishtail palm is a popular ornamental plant because of its unique appearance and low maintenance requirements. It thrives in bright, indirect light and prefers well-draining soil. It can tolerate a range of temperatures and humidity levels, making it a versatile plant for indoor and outdoor settings.
