: A Fan Palm doesn’t need any special type of potting soil. As tropical plants, they do well in any well-drained potting soil. Having a strong gravel base is best for these plants. Use a mix of cocopeat, sand, compost in 40:50:20 ratio. Potting
: Fan Palms are hardy species that need limited or no watering if grown in the open. If you are growing them indoors in pots, watering them twice a week is all they need. Because of the size of its leaves, it is recommended to spray them with water regularly to dislodge dust or dirt that could accumulate on them. Watering
: If you want to maintain a glowing Fan Palm with glossy leaves having a regular fertilising schedule is a good idea. We recommend using an organic liquid fertiliser once every fortnight. Dilute it in water as described on the pack and add little to each pot as part of your watering routine. If you are using a chemical fertiliser do ensure that you keep it away from its leaves, stem and roots. Fertilising A well-grown Fan Palm can instantly add a tropical look to any setting. Whether you are growing them indoors, on a balcony or out in the open this unique foliage species with its large fan-like leaf are true eye-catchers.
