Step 1: Plant the tree Plant the dwarf palm where it will get full sunlight in soil that drains well. Tip If you plant the tree in a container, use a soil mixture of one part vermiculite, one part peat moss, and one part potting soil. Make sure the container allows water to escape freely. Step 2: Keep the soil moist Keep the soil around the tree evenly moist. Water the tree daily for the first two weeks after planting by letting a hose run slowly at its base. Later, reduce watering to two or three times a week. Water in the morning or evening, not at mid-day. Step 3: Fertilize Fertilize the tree two or three months after planting. Use a time-release fertilizer and follow the instructions on the package for frequency of application. Step 4: Consult a palm tree specialist Consult a palm tree specialist when the tree needs to be pruned. The tree's foliage protects the tree from extreme weather and high winds, so over-pruning can harm the tree. Did You Know?
