This is a popular plant with landscapers as they look stunning around pools, patios and is an ideal potted palm. The Golden Cane Palm also make a very attractive indoor plant in a warm spot with filtered light.
Category / uses: ideal for landscaping around pool as a feature plant or lawn specimen in parks and gardens. Does well as a lush indoor plant.
Position / care: prefers sunny to partly shaded position outdoors; filtered bright light indoors. Well-drained soil, keep moist in summer and fertilise with a slow release fertiliser. Allow the top soil to become dry between watering and do not overwater. Overwatering is the quickest way to kill a Golden Cane Palm, especially if the soil does not drain well.
