Watering needs

Keep soil moist but not wet at all times, especially during the growing season. Overwatering can damage your plant and lead to fronds quickly turning brown.

Pruning Advice

Remove spent fronds with clean, sharp secateurs to keep the plant tidy and prevent dead leaves from draining energy from the plant.
