A palm variety is a staple for any houseplant collection. They are quite tolerant to neglect, but they thrive best when given the proper care. There are many different types of palms, so you’ll want to be sure to check with a plant consultant at Colasanti’s to be sure these care instructions suit your palm! Availability may vary.
Palms prefer bright, indirect sunlight. Their leaves will burn if exposed to too much direct sunlight, but they will not thrive in a dark environment either.
Palm plants will grow best when their watered regularly. Keep the soil evenly moist, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. A drainage hole in the pot will assure the palm’s roots do not sit in water and rot. Overwatering is the number one killer of palms!
Palms are sensitive to too many chemical fertilizers, so be sure to check with a plant consultant at Colasanti’s to determine what soil content is best for your palm.
