Planting

Make sure the root ball of the Dwarf Palm is moist. Does the root ball feel dry? Soak it in a bucket of water for one hour. Choose a large pot or tub with holes in the base. Cover the bottom with a layer of potsherds or hydrograins. Put compost in the pot and plant the root ball of the Dwarf Palm at the correct depth. Fill the pot with compost, press firmly and water immediately after planting. The Dwarf Palm grows well when some lime has been added to the compost.

Dwarf Fan Palm - Houseplant

Plant this palm in an attractive planter, ensuring good drainage. Either stand the nursery pot on a saucer in the planter, or layer the bottom of the planter with potsherds and stand the nursery pot on those.
This lovely, exotic looking palm tree needs a light spot with room to spread out. It needs some sun but do avoid the hottest part of the day, especially if it is in the window as sunlight through glass can burn the leaves.
Only water when the soil feels dry. Feed fortnightly in the growing season, with plant food for leafy plants.
This plant can certainly withstand some drought but it will appreciate being lightly sprayed with boiled and cooled water (or rainwater if available) during the winter, to keep the humidity around the plant reasonably high.
Although essentially a houseplant, it will do well on your patio or decking during the warmest summer months. Do slowly acclimatise it to being out in the sun, before leaving out overnight.

Care

The Dwarf Palm (Chamaerops humilis) is easy to grow given that it is quite compact. During the summer to improve the growth of your Dwarf Palm feed with a liquid fertilizer on a monthly basis. After the winter, remove any leaves that appear unpleasant to the eye.

The Dwarf Palm can be preserved during the winter

The Dwarf Palm is a pot plant that is fairly hardy. It can tolerate frost up to a temperature of approximately -10˚ C. However, to preserve the Dwarf Palm over the winter it is recommended to store it in a cool place at approximately 5˚ C. This prevents damage to its leaves, water moderately during this period. Water it more frequently from March onwards and by April, the Dwarf Palm can return outdoors again.

Extra

The well known Dwarf Palm is originally from the region surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. It is the only palm that grows naturally in Europe. During the summer and under favourable conditions, yellow flowers may appear in short panicles on the Dwarf Palm.
