Container grown queen palm plant tips
Maintaining the queen palm in a container is relatively straightforward as long as you meet the basic needs.
When growing queen palms, make sure that your potted queen palm receives plenty of bright light. However, avoid intense sunlight that can burn the leaves.
Water Queen Palm when the top of the potting soil feels dry. Water slowly until moisture drips through the drainage hole, then drain the pot thoroughly. Never leave Queen Palm in the water.
Fertilize queen palm in pots every four months between spring and summer with a palm fertilizer or an all-purpose slow-release plant food. Do not overfeed, as too much fertilizer can cause leaf tips and edges to turn brown.
To trim the palm of the hand, dead fronds are cut off at their base with sterile scissors or secateurs. It is normal for outer fronds to die as the plant matures, but do not prune the fronds in the center of the canopy and do not remove the leaves until they are brown and brittle. Palms absorb nutrients from old fronds, even if they are burned brown.
Repot a queen palm grown in a container to a slightly larger pot if you notice any signs that it has grown out of its pot, such as: B. Roots growing through the drainage hole or on the surface of the potting soil. If the plant is strongly root-bound, the water will run straight through without being absorbed.
Treat each palm scale with house plant insecticidal soap.
