Palm Care

Although there are many varieties of palms, they all require similar conditions to grow their best!

Light:

A fairly bright room without direct sunlight is advised. Too much sun can cause scorched leaves.  Parlour and Kentia palms can thrive in lower light conditions. 

Water:

All palms require good drainage.  Water more liberally in spring and summer allowing the top 1 to 2 inches of soil to dry before watering again. Do not over water, especially during the winter time. Water sparingly in the winter.  Mist leaves regularly if room is heated.

Temperature:

Average room temperatures of 15°C – 24°C are suitable and no lower than 13°C. Sudden cold temperature drops and cold drafts can cause the leaves to display brown spots. Parlour and Kentia palms should not exceed 15°C during winter nights.  

Fertilizer:

During spring and summer feed with a palm fertilizer or just a standard diluted feed. After repotting with new potting mix do not use fertilizer for 2 months.

Potting:

When re-potting – take care not to disturb the plant too much and only sit it as deep as it was previously in the soil.  This plant prefers being pot bound to a certain degree, so re-pot every three years.
