Planting and care
Saw palmetto is found in sandy coastal lands or as undergrowth in pine forests in the Southeastern United States.
|Palm s prefer partial shade (or partial with some sunlight), as they are more than happy in low-light conditions.||Chalky, Loamy, Sandy soil : moist but well-drained.||Water the plant until the soil is evenly moist. Do not over water the palm plant or leave it sitting in water. Check often to be sure that the plant is draining properly.||They can handle a winter rest in cooler conditions, not less than 50 F. (10 C.). They do tolerate central heating.||Feed your palm regularly during the growing season. If possible, use a palm fertilizer, which will contain all the micro nutrients and extra potassium and manganese. Potassium deficiency is especially common in palmsâ€”it shows up in yellowing or brownish fronds.|
Caring for Saw palmetto
- Palms grow best when you let their roots fill the pot.
- They need soil-based potting compost and should not be repotted unnecessarily.
