Canary Island Date Palm, 120-130 cm, pot 4 ltr.
Canary Island Date Palm
The Canary Island Date Palm comes from deserted areas on the Canary islands. Despite it's powerful root system, it does not tolerate drought, when grown in pot. This is easily visible, when the leaf tips start to turn yellow and dry. In winter it should be kept cool, down to 0 degrees Celsius. It needs much sun to be able to develop it's full glory. If the surrounding air is very dry, this palm will still thrive, as long as it is watered regularly.
This size of Canary Island Date Palm comes in a small container. If they are not moved immediately to a bigger container, they need to be watered during summer at least once a day.
