Seifrizii Palms are most commonly known as Bamboo Palms. They get this name from their unique trunks that look very much like traditional bamboo. At the tops of these stems grow full, bright green fronds. This palm is far more tolerant of lower light conditions than other palms, making it a great choice for your home or office that does not get a lot of natural light.
Height: 10ft - 12ft
Spread: 2ft - 3ft
Pet Safe: Safe for pets.
CareGeneral Maintenance: Palms do not like to have their roots disturbed, so only repot if the plant has become rootbound. Trim browned leaves as neccessary.
Temperature: Will thrive in normal household temperatures, but prefer to be kept in a space above 18º Celsius. Prolonged exposure to temperatures below 10º Celsius may cause cold damage.
Light: Bright indirect light is ideal and will result in the quickest growth rate. However this palm is quite tolerant of lower light conditions.
Watering: Water evenly about once a week. They store alot of water in their trunks, allowing them to tolerate short periods of drought, but their leaves will start to brown if they are left dry for too long. Palms love high humidity and will greatly appreciate a humidifier nearby, and/or being misted.
Soil: A well draining potting mix, with added sand to improve drainage is a great mixture for this palm. Avoid heavy/muddy soils as they may cause root rot issues.
Fertilizer: Feed with a slow-release fertilizer (Ideally a 15-5-15 ratio or something similar) once in the spring, and once in the summer.
