Care & Size Guidance
Relatively easy to care for, this palm grows happily in pots and responds well to regular feeding and watering.
If given a large pot, Veitchia joannis will grow quickly. To slow down its growth, don’t pot it up too often.
Although plants can take full sun when larger, we recommend giving them just morning or afternoon sun as indoor plants.
Responds well to regular feeding with a palm fertiliser from April to September.
