9" Phoenix roebelenii (Dwarf Date Palm
Regular price $29.99
These palm trees remain fairly small—mature specimens rarely reach over six feet—they are relatively slow-growing, and they are tough enough to stand up to many indoor environments.
- Light: Date palms like the brightest light that can be provided, including full sun.
- Water: Date palms, including pygmy date palms, do best when kept slightly on the dry side. These plants are typically from arid regions and are very sensitive to being over-watered.
- Soil: A peat-based mix is perfect, with lots of material for drainage. Palms appreciate good drainage to prevent water-logged roots.
- Fertilizer: Feed with a weak liquid fertilizer once or twice during the growing season and not at all during the winter. Be aware of potential deficiencies in magnesium, potassium, and manganese, which can cause leaf yellowing and decline. Supplement with these nutrients every few months.
