How To Properly Water Your Palm Tree

Watering Palm Trees the correct way is significant. The majority of the Palm Trees like a damp dirt/sand mix that drains well. However, it is more difficult than one might expect. A great deal of palm tree lovers over water their palms or don't give enough water, since they don't have the foggiest idea how to check for soil dampness. A lot of people are just not sure how much water their palm needs and how frequently to water it. We all started somewhere right?

1. How much water does my palm tree need?

Here is a standard you should utilize when watering your Palm Trees. On the off chance that it's a 10 gallon palm tree, at that point utilize 10 gallons of water. If it's a 25 gallon pot, at that point utilize 25 gallons of water. Amid sweltering climate utilize somewhat more, amid chilly climate somewhat less. You ought to comprehend, that it relies upon the palm tree type and on the kind of soil. Continuously check the dirt to ensure it's damp and change your water sum if necessary.

2. How frequently would it be a good idea for me to water my freshly planted palm tree?

You should water your new planted palm tree each day for the first 7 days, each other day for the second week, and after that change to 3 times each week. Palm tree soil ought to be constantly clammy and damp.

More grown palm trees need watering 2-3 times each week. Change your watering relying upon the season. Palm Trees develop more amid warm months and back off amid cold months. Watering once every week in the winter ought to be sufficient.

3. What it the best time for watering my Palm Tree?

You should water your Palm tree promptly toward the beginning of the day or late at night when it's not very hot. Why? In such a case that you water your palm tree amidst the sweltering summer day, when the temperature is around 100F, and get the water on the palm tree frond it will broil the leaves and could leave damaging scars!

When you going tanning, you put oil all over your body to expand the outcome. The water on the leaves works a similar way oil takes a shot at your skin. That is the reason, watering your palm on the fronds on a hot sunny day can result in leaf consume.

4. How to check the sodden dimension of the dirt?

I like to utilize a soil meter. It gives precise, simple to peruse results. Amazon.com has plenty of options available, but even better, visit your local hardware store/gardening center.

Dampness meters begin at about $6 and keep running up to well over $100.

IF you do not want to purchase anything, you can manually check your soil by placing your finger in the soil. If the first 2 inches or so of soil is dry, then it is a good time to water!

Note: You don't have to water your palm when it's sprinkling, or raining for days in a row.
