Item code:
134290P

An ornamental palm with a slim trunk and long, dark green, slender leaves that produces cream coloured flowers and small edible fruit. It would suit almost any garden space particularly if you'd like a lush, tropical inspired garden. Preferring a sunny to partly shady position with well-drained soil, this palm is very drought hardy and low maintenance once established. Plant it in a large pot or container and add it to your garden layout or indoor living area.

When used indoors and 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.
