Care & tips Trachycarpus
Trachycarpus is a real sunbather and needs this light intensity to remain beautiful and healthy. However, this also makes it a very thirsty plant! It is beneficial to give the Trachycarpur some extra nutrition in the summer months. This will support its growth and development. Use palm food for this purpose and never give more than the recommended amount.
Water requirements for Trachycarpus
As mentioned, Trachycarpus is a thirsty houseplant and especially in the summer months it needs water every day. In the summer, the soil absolutely must not dry out, but beware of too much water as well. You should avoid leaving a layer of water in the pot, as this will not be beneficial to the Trachycarpur. If there is too much water, the tips of the leaves will turn brown or black. Do adjust the watering when your Trachycarpur suffers from this. In the winter months the soil may dry out a little between waterings and as there is less sunlight in the winter months it will also need less water.
Light requirements for Trachycarpus - 80cm
The ideal location for the Trachycarpus is in a spot with plenty of sunlight. Both indoors and outdoors, this plant can be placed in full and direct sunlight. Do make sure that you choose a spot out of the wind and draught, as this will cause the leaves to break down sooner. As mentioned, the Trachycarpur is hardy and this means that this plant will survive temperatures of up to -10 degrees Celsius. If temperatures drop below this mark it is advisable to bring the palm inside or protect it with special winter covers.
