Pygmy Date Palm

Zone I live in Santee, CA (an inland valley near San Diego, CA) | Anonymous added on August 31, 2016 | Answered

How much water is required for a pygmy date palm (and is this best accomplished through a drip system?)? Does the pygmy date palm require significantly less water than a Chinese Flame tree? How much less?
