Fertilizing bamboo palms
What and when is the best time and type of fertilizer to use on bamboo palms in South Florida?
Fertilize the bamboo palm using a slow-release or diluted liquid fertilizer, but only during active growth. Only feed monthly or less often if you notice plant damage, such as brown edges and tips. This occurs with excessive use of fertilizer that leads to a buildup of salts in the plant's soil.
