Pests & Diseases: Scale

Cultural Notes: Grow in free draining soil that always remains moist, but not waterlogged, as this will rot the root system. New fronds start from the centre of the trunk and lower leaves should be pruned off as the brown with age. Brown leaf tips caused by heat & water stress can be lightly trimmed. Grows well in pots, and due to its slow growth can remain in the same container for a long time. Fertilse very sparingly and only when leaves are showing signs of yellowing. Keep an eye out for scale.
