Planting Tips & Instructions:
We strongly recommend planting in a container in order to properly protect your plant from winter damage. Use the following instructions as a guide for container planting.
Important: Thoroughly hydrate the plant by submersing the root zone in a container of water for 10 minutes while you prepare for planting.
A. Fill the container with soil to within 4 inches of the top. Remove the pot and prepare the root ball for planting by gently disturbing the surface roots with your fingers, fork, or gardening tool and pruning any damaged roots. Dig a hole in the soil to insert the lower part of the root ball.
B. Once the plant is properly positioned in the pot, begin filling the pot with soil. Work the soil around the root ball with your hands, firming the soil around the plant with your fingers. When the hole is filled, tamp the soil to remove any air pockets.
C. Water well and, if necessary, adjust the plant so it is upright and add additional soil if needed, Check to be sure the plant is not planted too deeply. If it is, raise the plant carefully and re-firm the soil.
Watering - Adequate and consistent watering is essential during your plant's first year. Once established, this plant is very drought tolerant and requires little watering. Due to variable geographical and environmental conditions, a specific watering
schedule is difficult to define. However, as a rule of thumb, you should not allow the soil or the original root ball to completely dry out. During the first summer, you may need to water as often as every few days in periods of drought and extreme summer heat. To determine if your plant needs water, dig a few inches into the soil next to the plant. If the soil is dry 2-3 inches below the surface, it is time to water.
If you plant in a container, allow the top half of soil to dry out moderately between waterings. Water thoroughly until the soil is well-saturated and excess water drains out of the drainage holes at the bottom of the container. Never allow the plants to sit in a saucer of water. Pots may be kept in saucers after any excess water has drained from the pot.
Feeding - Feed your plants with a water soluble fertilizer two to three times per year. Avoid fertilizing after September 1st so your plants can prepare for winter. Resume fertilizing when new growth appears in spring.
Winterizing - Majesty Palms should be grown in containers and moved indoors before the first frost. When you bring your plant indoors for the winter, select a room with a sunny window.
Water sparingly over the winter. Remove any unsightly or dead growth as needed to maintain an attractive appearance, and do not be alarmed if your plant sheds some of its foliage. In spring when temperatures begin to rise, move the plant back outdoors for the summer.
Pruning - Remove any dead, damaged or unsightly growth as needed to maintain an attractive appearance. No other pruning in necessary.
