Planting and care
Falling fruit can make a mess, so it is recommended that pindo palms be planted at least ten feet from decks, patios or paved surfaces. Since these trees grow so slowly, it is best to buy at least a three-year-old nursery stock tree unless you are extremely patient.
|Full sun or partial shade.||Any type of soil as long as it is moderately salt tolerant and has good drainage.||Pindo palms are able to survive hot and windy conditions, but it is always best to keep the soil adequately moist.||Do well in colder regions where temperatures may dip to 5 F. (-15 C.).||Feed the palm two or three times between spring and fall, using a palm fertilizer.|
