Sunlight: 6-8 hours of Direct Sunlight.

Pruning: This palm requires minimal dead leaf trimming 1-2x a year to prevent “skirting.”

Fertilizer: Slow-release palm fertilizer, such as an 8-8-8 formula twice a year for faster growth in the spring and summer.

Watering: Scheduled irrigation is ideal. 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 it. Keep the soil moist but well-drained, watering more in times of drought and less when there is rainfall.
