Q.Christmas Palm Never Produced Flowers

Zone 60028 | Anonymous added on September 19, 2021 | Answered

I have a potted Christmas palm that is about 15 years old and it has never produced flowers. It otherwise seems healthy producing a few new branches each year. I live in Chicago and it is outside during the summer and inside when the weather gets below about 45 degrees. I’ve been hoping to get it to flower and produce seeds before it gets too large for the house so I can start over. Any suggestions to get it to flower?

Poor soil nutrition will be the primary cause for lack of flowering, here. I would feed it, roughly, every four months with a fertilizer meant for palms.
