Culture: Queen Palms vary in trunk size, trunk girth, size and shape of the fronds. As a rule, field growth palms are more viriorus in growth and have thicker trunks. The type of seed initially used is also very important. Planting is always best done with a base of plaster sand and with the base at grade height. Watering is best at three days a week in hot weather, once a week during cooler weather. Queen Palms like heavy nitrogen applications monthly during the growing season, and trace element feedings either thru a time–release product or a foliar application. Our palms are shipped with the fronds tied and should only be untied after 30 to 45 days. We have thousands of Queen Palms, available in all sizes.
