About This Plant
Plant Care Tips
Planting InstructionsSelect a potting soil suitable for indoor plants, one that is light and drains freely. If the soil is dry, add enough water and mix it in to make the soil just damp. Add enough soil to the new container so that the top of the root ball will sit a bit below the rim of the container, 1/4-inch for smaller plants up to an inch for very large plants. This will help prevent spills when you water. Remove your plant from its old container and gently tease the roots from the surface of the root ball. Place the plant in the new container, adding or removing soil to bring the top of the root ball to the desired level. Add soil around the root ball, firming it in lightly. Water in to settle the soil, adding more if needed. Water your newly repotted plant lightly for the next several weeks while the roots are growing into the new soil. Indoor plants can be especially prone to rot from overwatering at this point.
General Care DescriptionTrim out dead fronds at the base. Feed weekly at 1/4 strength during the growing season.
