Watering needs

Water moderately once established. Prefers moist conditions, so mist regularly with a water sprayer. Avoid over watering as this can lead to rot. If growing in a temperate region keep the plant on the drier side during winter months.

Pruning Advice

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