Hawaiian Palm Care Guide
Put me somewhere where I can see the sky, but won't get scorched by the sun.
Water me once a week, unless my soil is still moist. I am drought-tolerant and do not like sitting in water, so feel free to leave me for longer if you don't think I'm ready.
Being native to Hawaii, I like to be warm during the day, but I'm also susceptible to spider mites, so I should be kept below 12 degrees at night, if possible.
Give me some good organic fertiliser once a month during the growing season.
I go into stress-mode quite easily, and will drop older leaves naturally when this happens, but you may want to help me along but cutting away dead material.
If I have attracted small black pests on my leaves, give them a gentle wipe with a damp cloth.
Hawaiian Palm General Information
I can reach about one meter tall in adoptive homes, so check my roots as we come into Spring and see if I need to be popped into a bigger pot to help me grow.
Best to keep me away from pets and young children.
