Caring for Maurice

Light

The Triangle Palm likes bright light and even full sun outdoors, although we suggest sticking to morning sun. If the tips are turning brown move it to a shadier spot. 

Water & humidity

Let the top 3-5cm dry in between watering. This palm is drought tolerant once established and prefers well draining sandy soil. Rather under water than over water and make sure water drains freely.

Feeding

Palms are heavy feeders and need a balanced organic fertiliser every 3-4 months. If you notice brown/yellow spots on the leaves, or leaves turning yellow, it could be a nutrient deficiency. In this case use a solution of trace elements (we reccomend Trelmix) that's rich in Magnesium.

Re-potting

Re-potting is only necessary every 2nd year or so when the plant starts to outgrow its container. Bear in mind if you plant this palm in your garden it does not like being transplanted.

Atrium Top Tip

Remove dead fronds by cutting them as close to the stem as possible to keep the plant neat. Some horticulturalists recommend leaving the dead fronds for a while as they provide nutrition for the plant.

Quirky plant fact

There are only 1000 of these palms left in the wild, in a small section of the Andohahela forest in Madagascar. Here, they can grow 15m tall.
