Plant Bio

The pygmy date palm (Phoenix roebelenii) originated underneath the canopy of dense tropical forests in Africa and Asia. These palms are so easy to grow and make great centerpieces in a patio planter or planted directly in your yard. They will do best in bright, but not direct light inside or on a patio, and can even take full sun when acclimated. Offer them some humidity while keeping their soil slightly on the moist side and be careful not to over-water.

Roots

Native to southeastern Asia, from southwestern China, northern Laos and northern Vietnam.

Fun Facts
