Easy to Care for Date Palm Plant

More tolerant of conditions than other palms, Roebelenii Pygmy Date Palm does well in bright, direct light to full sun and can stand to dry out occasionally. They are considered the most graceful and beautiful of the palms, and are frequently used in tropical containers for the summer months. Plants are either male or female, and both are needed to produce flowers and seeds. These palms are very unlikely to flower indoors. Size of the palm varies based on the size of the container. They look magnificent paired with Kimberlee Queen Ferns, petunias and hibiscus. Indoors, Roebelenii Pygmy Date Palm does best with at least a few hours of bright, direct light from western or southern exposure. They will tolerate lower light levels, but care needs to be taken that they are not overwatered. Pygmy Date Palms grow very slowly, usually about 6 inches a year of trunk space. Palm fronds appear from the center of the palm and expand as they age. Lower fronds will need to be removed as they age, contributing to the naturally upright habit of the Pygmy Date Palms.
