PLANT CARE ( Washingtonia Palm )
|Washingtonia Palm has a moderate growth rate and survives temperatures as low as 15–20 degrees.|
|The Washingtonia Palm prefers bright, indirect light and can tolerate some partial shade.|
|Yous should aim for room humidity of between 40 and 60%|
|Water your new palm thoroughly with 4 to 5 gallons of water to drench the soil after planting it.|
Left in a natural state, browned fronds of a Washingtonia Palm will form a very long “hula skirt” of thatch. Most people, however, prefer a cleaner look and trim off old fronds fairly often. Once the palm is too tall to reach, leave the old fronds on or hire someone to trim. “Boots” (old leaf bases) are a bright and attractive red-brown while the palm is young. As they age, you can remove them by hand or leave them on (they’ll fall off on their own eventually) to form a spiky decoration above the smooth trunk. Washingtonia Palm is happier in a less humid climate than ours, so pick a sunny, well-drained place where the palm will get good breezes. Soil amendments aren’t really necessary. Watering on a regular basis with time to dry out between waterings will keep the palm looking its best. Fertilize in spring, summer, and fall with a good palm fertilizer containing micronutrients. Beware of the sharp teeth on the palm’s leaf stems.
