Planting and Care
Sow seeds in spring, barely covering the seeds with soil. Keep them warm (75-80°F/24-27°C) and moist. Seeds can take 2 months to germinate, so be patient. Most indoor plants like a steady diet of liquid plant food, but not palms. Palms are slow-growing, especially indoors, and don’t need much fertilizer.
|Sunlight||Bright (indirect) light year-round|
|Watering||Water thoroughly then allow soil to dry slightly between waterings. Water less in winter when growth has slowed. Use filtered or distilled water. When watering, avoid getting the base of the palm wet to prevent rot. Use a container with drainage holes, and fast-draining potting mix to prevent soggy soil.|
|Soil||Mix 2 parts peat moss-based potting mix and 1 part sharp sand. Repot only when necessary, about every 3 years. Well -Drained Soil.|
|Temperature||70-80°F/21-27°C days; 55-60°F/13-16°C nights|
|Fertilizer||Feed with a slow-release fertilizer once in spring and again in summer.|
|Humidity||Average room (around 40-50% relative humidity).|
