Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location that receives a lot of sunlight (6+ hours daily) with well-draining soil.
Dig your hole 2 to 3 times the width and slightly shallower than the root ball. Hold the tree straight as you begin to backfill the site, tamping down the soil as you go. When finished, apply water to settle the soil and remove any air pockets.
If you're container-planting, choose a pot that is 1 to 2 times larger than the pot that the plant initially arrived in. Use a quality acidic potting medium, such as a palm or citrus mix. Partially fill the container part way, position the palm and fill the remainder leaving a slight space from the rim of the pot. Choose a location on the patio, backyard, or front/side of the house providing it will receive full to partial sun. Water until it begins to flow through the bottom drainage holes, keep the soil slightly moist but not saturated.
2. Watering: Stick your finger into the soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around for any moisture. If the soil is drying out, go ahead and water.
3. Fertilizing: You can apply palm fertilizers that contain specific nutrients best suited for palms. The slow release of these nutrients will provide consistent, targeted feeding to help your tree grow strong and healthy. If you prefer, you can use a balanced fertilizer such as an 8-8-8 formula for quicker growth in spring and summer.
4. Pruning: Palms do not need much pruning except to remove damaged fronds. Be careful not to pull off any dead or damaged fronds as that can leave a wound behind. Always remove any damaged fronds by pruning them off with a sharp pair of sterilized pruners.
