The Bottle Palm also thrives in containers, so you can keep it indoors year-round or move it onto your patio in warmer temperatures.

Once planted, the Bottle Palm is quite low maintenance, requiring very little pruning and falling prey to few diseases or pests. Ready to add this tropical beauty to your collection?

In instances where the tree is planted in full shade, the Bottle Palm tends to develop a longer trunk and may lean towards sunlight. Choose a planting location with well-draining soil. The Bottle Palm tolerates a wide range of soil conditions and isn t overly picky. Dig a hole twice the size of the trees root ball. Place the tree into the hole and firm the soil around the trees root system to remove any air pockets. Apply two to three inches of mulch around the top of the trees root system to discourage weed growth and keep the soil moist. Ideally, the mulch should be at least two to three inches away from the trees trunk. Container Growth: The Bottle Palm will grow indoors or outdoors in a container with drainage holes. Plant the palm in a mid-size container that is at least twice the size of the trees root ball. Use a cactus soil potting mixture. 2. Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist for the first six to eight months after planting so the tree can establish an adequate root system. Afterwards, water the tree weekly if it has not rained. During the summer months, the tree may also require supplemental watering. Water your container Bottle Palm when the first two inches of soil feel dry to the touch. 3. Fertilizing: Fertilize the Bottle Palm in the spring, mid-summer, early fall, and late fall. Use a general purpose, high potassium fertilizer specifically for palms. Add fertilizer when the soil is damp and then water deeply. Follow the instructions on the fertilizers label for application ratios. 4. Pruning: The Bottle Palm Tree requires very little pruning. Remove dead or damaged fronds as needed by cutting them off as close to the trunk as possible. | 3 Gallon - Bottle Palm Tree - A Tropical Palm to Treat Your Home or Garden
