Planting and care

The only truly suitable date palm for indoor growth is the pygmy date palm. You will occasionally see wild date palms growing in large public venues like malls, but they aren t really appropriate for any kind of residential setting. Pygmy date palms are hardy and durable palms and make excellent accent plants. They do best with loads of light—if you cannot provide adequate light, cut back or cease fertilization so the plant doesn t stretch and become ungainly.

Full sun to full shade.Sandy, well-drained soil.Water regularly to keep the soil moist.Minimum temperature 30 degrees F.Fertilize pygmy date palms about two to three times per year with a fertilizer that is labelled for use with palms. Typically a fertilizer with a ratio of 8-2-12-4 is ideal. Apply fertilizers to the soil at a rate of 1-1/2 pounds per 100 square feet every three months between April and September.
