Bottle Palm Care
The Bottle Palm gets its name from the water bottle shape it gets as it matures. This semi-short, sun-loving palm gets to a height of ten feet over time making them a perfect indoor plant for bright light environments.
With bright tangerine fronds and wide, long leaves, these beautiful palms offer a tropical feel to any space.
Below are some tips and tricks to best care for your Bottle Palm!
Light: Bright, direct sun.
Water: Water every 5-7 days.
Cold Heartiness: One of the key areas of bottle tree palm care is provisions for protection from frost. Tie up the fronds gently and wrap the tree in a blanket or other insulating cover if cold temperatures are predicted. Even a light freeze can cause fronds to brown and die.
Fertilizer: Fertilize in early spring with a high potassium ratio food. Watch for pests and disease, and combat any signs immediately.
