The Chamaerops Humilis originates from Europe. This palm does not grow very large compared to other palms. The Dutch name is therefore logical: European Dwarf palm or Dwarf fan palm. Loved by its hardiness and tolerance of direct sunlight.
The Chamaerops Humilis must not be dry. Especially on hot days when the plant is in a large pot outside. For example, water the plant once every five days in the summer and once a week in the winter.
For inside: The amount of water depends on, among other things, the size of the palm and the size of the planter. Therefore start with small amounts of water per irrigation cycle. If the soil is still very wet after 4 days, reduce the amount of watering.
The Chamaerops Humilis needs at least 5 hours of direct sunlight. When the Chamaerops Humilis is moved outside, where the palm used to be a little further from the window, it is necessary to let it get used to direct sunlight gradually. When the palm tree is exposed to direct sunlight without habituation, the leaf can burn. But no worries, the palm will quickly produce new leaves that are excellent in direct sunlight.
