Get to Know Me

People also call me a Cascade or Cataract Palm. From southeastern Mexico, I bring a lush tropical vibe to any room. I grow slowly with dense stems growing in a cluster. Turn my pot a quarter-turn weekly so I don't grow lop-sided.

How to take
Care of me

70 to 80° F. Keep me away from cold drafts, air conditioning or heating vents, and hot surfaces like radiators or furnaces.
TEMPERATURE
Allow soil to dry out slightly between waterings.Water using distilled water. You also can leave tap water sitting out for 24 hours before using to allow chemicals to evaporate.
WATERING
Use a liquid or houseplant fertilizer at half strength. Fertilize me monthly during the spring-summer growing season.
FERTILIZER
If you notice spider mites, mealybugs, or whiteflies, gently wipe them off with a 50/50 mix of soap and water.
POTENTIAL PESTS
Trim any dead fronds off.
PRUNING
Transplant me about every two years or when I've outgrown my current pot. Choose a new pot that is 2" wider with plenty of drainage holes. Add a stake or trellis for me to climb.
REPOTTING

As a tropical native, I like bright light and humidity. Keep my soil moist at all times—but make sure my pot drains well. I hate having constantly wet feet. I also like heat, but dry heat damages my leaves. Food is also important. I need regular feeding during spring and summer.

Appearance

Each one of us is unique, so I might not look exactly like the photograph. Embrace me for who I am! When I arrive, gently remove me from the box and introduce me to my new home. Check to make sure my soil is moist after the journey
