Safety information
Pot size
Room temperature
Average room temperatures of 65F (16C) --- 75F (24C) are suitable and no lower than 55F (12.7C). Sudden cold temperature drops and cold drafts can cause the leaves to display brown spots.
Room position
A fairly bright room without direct sunlight is advised. Not enough light will slow growth and too much sun can scorch leaves. Normal room humidity is usually fine; however, dry air turns leaf tips brown (this is common).
Feeding instructions
During spring and summer feed with a palm fertilizer or just a standard diluted feed. After re-potting with new potting mix do not use fertilizer for 2 months.
