Also known as a Pygmy Date Palm, this slow-growing ornamental plant displays a dense crown of arching fronds attached to a sturdy trunk.
Phoenix Roebelenii likes indirect sunlight because it naturally grows under a compact canopy of larger foliage in tropical forests. This no-fuss palm is a great candidate for a home or office plant because of its easy-going nature and air-purifying abilities.
- This plant needs filtered or dappled sunlight. You would want to place it in a well-lit room with windows, but away from direct light. A sunny window with sheer curtains is also a good idea.
- This plant has medium or moderate water needs and requires watering once or twice a week. It needs moist soil throughout the growing season for optimum growth and flowering. Water this plant when the soil is dry to touch.
