Palm indoors

Zone cape town rsa | petrab added on April 29, 2015 | Answered

I have a two metre palm indoors in a corner of a bright lounge. It looks very healthy but the leaves in the front are growing much better than the ones behind and against the wall. Should I regularly rotate the plant to try and get even growth or just leave it looking lovely on the side that shows? I am in Cape Town RSA.

You had e-mailed me back and asked if I suggested to rotate it once a week or once a month. I would suggest somewhere in the middle - once every few weeks.

Yes, I would recommend rotating the palm regularly so all sides of it get equal time with the light exposure it seems to crave.
