Phoenix roebelenii have gracefully arching, feathery fronds radiating from the center of sturdy trunks. Grown as single or multiple-trunked plants. Palms have unique botanical features setting them apart from other interiorscape plants. Though Phoenix roebelenii can be acclimated to light levels as low as 100fc, they do best in 200fc or above – even tolerating direct sun. Unfortunately, higher light levels usually mean lower humidity levels – a condition Phoenix protest by developing brown tips. Remedy this by grouping Phoenix with other plants to increase humidity. Thoroughly water entire root ball, then allow to dry sufficiently. In medium light (100fc – 250fc), allow media to dry down one-third of container; in higher light conditions, allow to dry down three inches to one-third of container. Overwatering symptoms start with yellow foliage and then progress to entire fronds that collapse and wilt.
