Its trademark is the grey trunk of the Bottle Palm that grows conical thicker at the base over time. Its leaf stalks and the v-shaped and strongly bent back pinnate leaves of its crown have a red edge in younger plants and later turn green. Due to its rather slow growth rate, the Bottle Palm is perfectly suited as a room plant.
Natural Location: The origin of the Bottle Palm is on Round Island, about 30 km off the north coast of Mauritius.
Cultivation: Seed propagation indoors is possible throughout the year. To increase its germinability, you can slightly roughen the seed with a soft file or a piece of sandpaper and place it in warm water overnight. Plant the seeds about 1 cm deep in moist potting compost and cover the seed container with clear film. Don't forget to make some holes in the clear film and take it every second or third day completely off for about 2 hours. That way you avoid mold formation on your potting compost. Place the seed container somewhere bright and warm with a temperature between 20° C and 25° C and keep the earth moist, but not wet. With constant humidity and moisture the first seedlings will come up after a few weeks - in some cases it might also take three to six months.
Place: The Bottle Palm likes it warm and prefers a sunny place with temperatures between 20? and 25° Celsius. From April until September it can be kept outside on the porch, balcony or in your garden - but keep it after the hibernation initially indoors at a shaded place for about two weeks before you move the plant. That gives your Bottle Palm some time to adjust to UV radiation after the winter, otherwise it might get the leaves burnt.
Care: Plant your Bottle Palm in a taller pot or tub right from the beginning and shift up every two years to a bigger and taller container. Water the plant generously and penetratingly, but see that you avoid waterlogging, especially in the saucer. The earth may be dry on the surface between watering, but underneath the soil should always be moist. During the growth period from April to October, you can give fluid fertilizer for palm trees every two to three weeks.
During Winter: The Bottle Palm is not frost-resistant, and is therefore best kept in a bright and warm place during the winter. You still have to water your plant plentiful - even in the winter time.
Bonsai ability: No
