Pygmy Date Palm Care

View Full Planting & Care Instructions
sun shining


Plant your Pygmy Date Palm in an area that receives full-partial sun (4-6 hours of direct sunlight per day).

drops of water


Water your Palm 2-3 times per week for the first month, then once a week for the remainder of the first year after planting. Keep the soil moist but well-drained, watering more in times of drought and less when there is rainfall.



If necessary, use a palm-specific fertilizer for your Palm. Slow-release fertilizer is best to allow the smaller root system to uptake what it needs. Apply close to the base and start in spring/follow specific fertilizer instructions.

Low maintenance palm that grows indoors and out

Turn your yard into a tropical get away with the exotic Pygmy Date Palm.

Save space with this compact miniature palm. It can fit anywhere, in the corners of your garden, by the deck or pool.

Place it in a container and place it on the porch to frame entryways. If your area gets too cold for the palm, simply bring it inside once the weather gets cold.

It has upright green branches covered with long slender leaflets. The branches curve towards the top to provide an elegant open crown. It will wave hello to your guests and neighbors as they pass by, making them jealous of its beauty.

In warmer climates, you may even see your Pygmy Date Palm bloom with small, creamy white flowers, giving Pygmy Date Palms a unique, eye-catching look.

Love it

I planted this tree in a container and it's a showstopper. I was worried about this tree getting beat up during shipping, but it arrived healthy and continues to thrive. I'll definitely be purchasing again from Fast Growing Trees.
