Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - this palm is inexpensive and easy to find as it is routinely offered for sale by discount chains, grocery stores and almost always available from garden centers. Care: very easy to grow and maintain. As with most palms, the soil should be well drained. Applying household fertilizer in the summer months will keep these palms green and healthy. The main insect problem with this palm is spider mite, which usually occurs in very dry areas indoors mostly in the winter months. As the webs produced are virtually invisible until it has damaged the plant significantly, a light but thorough spray mixture of water, alcohol and safer's soap applied once a week should prevent this. Mealy bug, scale, gliocladium blight and phytopthora bud rot can also affect this palm but they far less commonly seen. Thrives in low indoor light but can tolerate some sunlight if acclimated. Keep evenly moist but not consistently wet. warningthe fruit of the bamboo palm is very toxic and should not be consumed
