This easy to grow shade loving palm prefers cooler areas and thrives in low light conditions. It’s great for growing in pots either indoors or in a shaded location outside. When the weather is dry and hot, mist spray the foliage several times a day. This will keep it cool and help deter pests. The soil should be moist but not wet. A good way to test the soil is to poke your finger into the top inch, if it’s dry then water it. Palms love being taken outside regularly as it helps prevent pests, diseases and encourages photosynthesis.
- Warning: the fruits of the Bamboo Palm are very toxic and should not be consumed.
