    Care Instructions

    Light Requirements:

    Golden Cane Palms thrive in bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. They grow best with some direct morning or evening sunlight but should be protected from the harsh midday sun.

    Water Requirements:

    Water the plant thoroughly when the top 3cm of soil feels dry. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging and root rot. In the growing season (spring and summer), keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Reduce watering in the winter months.

    Soil Requirements:

    Use a well-draining potting mix. A mix designed for palms or a blend of potting soil with sand and peat moss works well.

    Humidity:

    Golden Cane Palms prefer high humidity levels. Regular misting or placing a humidifier nearby can help maintain the necessary humidity, especially in dry indoor conditions.

    Pro Tip

    To promote bushy growth, prune any brown or yellow fronds regularly. This encourages new growth and helps maintain the plant's overall appearance.
