Place the younger plants in bright indirect sunlight. The mature plants can bear direct sunlight.

Protect it from extremely cold temperatures however it can tolerate low temperatures down to 23 degrees.

Regular watering is required. Moist soil is preferred but allow half of the soil or at least 1 to 2 inches of soil to dry before watering it again.

Fertilise a few times in summer.

Irrigate it regularly.

China Palm

Place it in bright sunlight or partial shade. Prevent from extended periods of frost.

Keep the soil evenly moist and allow the soil to dry slightly before watering again.

Fertilise with a very mild fertiliser. It has sensitive roots which will get damaged with over fertilisation.

Do not repot unless the plant has matured.
