Q.Care Of Mexican Palm Tree

Zone Denton, TX | Anonymous added on July 25, 2021 | Answered

We have 2 Mexican palm trees in pots. I need to know how to water these plants so as not to over water and kill the trees. The pots are fairly large and I’m not concerned about repotting for another year or two. Just watering is my problem.

Since you have them in large pots, it's extra important not to overwater if there is a lot of excess soil. They need well draining soil and are slightly drought tolerant, so water when the soil begins to dry.
