Why is the palm tree too small?

As we said before, the growth of an average palm tree can be between 5 to 20 meters, but this only happens when all environmental conditions are ideal for this plant. In addition, there are hundreds of reasons why a palm tree is not growing, stopped growing or started to die, and some of these reasons are:

  • The weather: not all palm trees are good to receive climatic excesses in their growth stage. It is important to know the ideal climate for a specific species and plant it in a season that offers a perfect environment, or also buy the palm tree with enough growth in advance.
  • Pass: Composting is a fundamental part of growth in hot seasons, and watering it little in cold seasons. In addition, the quality of the nutrients in the compost must be that indicated for the planted species.
  • Flowerpot: Starting the development stage of a palm tree is the most recommended, but you must be careful to choose the size of the pot well because it can be very small if it is growing at a good rate in a short time.
  • Humidity: When the soil is very compact and does not have good drainage, the plant can tend to drown due to the risk indicated by an expert.
