The Chamaerops Humilis is also known as the European Dwarf Palm, because this palm does not grow nearly as large as its relatives. The Chamaerops Humilis has beautiful fan-shaped leaves and will therefore always stand out. The Chamaerops Humilis is a popular houseplant because you can use it both indoors and outdoors. In short, a real indoor-outdoor plant!
Care and tips Chamaerops Humilis - 90cm
The Chamaerops Humilis is a super easy houseplant to look after. The palm can withstand direct sunlight and can also be placed outside. If you are looking for an easy tropical houseplant with a great appearance, then the Chamaerops Humilis is perfect for you! No matter how well you look after this plant, its leaves can always discolour. When the Chamaerops Humilis gets yellow leaves, the plant is short of nitrogen; in this case, fertilise it. Brown leaves are often old leaves that you can easily cut off. Black leaves are often a sign of frost damage, which can occur when the Chamaerops Humilis has been too cold.
The care differs when you place the houseplant inside or outside. Read on and find out how you can best care for your Chamaerops Humilis!
Water requirements of the Chamaerops Humilis - 90cm
The most important thing for the Chamaerops Humilis is that it never stands in dry soil. Make sure that the soil is always slightly moist but not wet. When the Dwarf Palm is outside, it needs more water than when it is inside. The sun is brighter outside and it will evaporate more water. When the Chamaerops Humilis is placed indoors, it is very important that there is no layer of water at the bottom of the pot. Indoor pots seldom have holes in the bottom of the pot, so that the water cannot drain away, which increases the risk of root rot. Always check the quantity and frequency in the first few weeks. The Chamaerops Humilis must get used to it and the amount and frequency depend on a number of factors, such as the size of the pot and the temperature.
Light requirements of Chamaerops Humilis - 90cm
Chamaerops Humilis does not really care where it is placed as long as there is sufficient sunlight. When you place Chamaerops Humilis indoors, it is important that it is close to a window, otherwise it will not be able to develop properly. If you place Chamaerops Humilis outside, we recommend that you place the palm further and longer in direct sunlight. When you buy the Chamaerops Humilis, it has never seen direct sunlight before, so let it get used to it.
