BAMBOO PALM CARE GUIDE
Swing With the Bamboo Palm
It won’t mind growing in shade, but bright, indirect light will make it taller and with healthier fronds.
It loves moisture so remember to water it often, whenever the soil feels dry. Let the excess water drain out in the drainage tray and empty it — never let it sit in still water. Overwatering isn’t a good idea as it can rot the roots.
Tip: Dip your finger for about an inch to check if the soil is dry, if it is – then it’s time to water. Eventually, you will get the hang of your plant’s schedule.
Native to northeastern and central Mexico, it’s a moisture-loving species. Mist it periodically to add moisture to its surrounding air.
65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit is the ideal growing temperature.
Foliage isn’t toxic to animals or humans, but don’t let the pets feast on its berries as it might bring upon tummy problems.
Prune it to remove dried and unhealthy fronds once the plant grows bigger.
