Spindle palm trees are perfect indoor plants. They thrive in dry, sandy soil and their growth is slow enough to make it perfect for a container.
The leaves are made up of numerous leaflets, lending the plant a lacy foliage appearance. Notably, this palm has a spindle-shaped stem that widens slightly above the base and then constricts near the crown. The effect is unique and appealing, also decorated with a ringed pattern along the trunk.
Light: Prefers full sun or bright indirect light but can go lower, if needed.
Watering: Offer water every 5-7 days making sure it stays moist but not soggy.
Soil: A spindle palm indoors requires consistent moisture but a well-draining planting medium to prevent sogginess. The addition of a little gritty material, such as sand, will enhance drainage and provide loose soil for the best root growth. Water deeply when the soil is halfway dry.
Pet-Toxicity: Non-toxic to pets.
