The Bamboo Palm can tolerate some sunlight but relishes the shade. They can grow quite large in the right conditions outdoors. Due to its thick foliage and controllable size, it can be a terrific indoor plant.
Water 1-3 times a week to keep the soil moist but not saturated. Palms like humidity. Watering will depends on how dry the climate is.
Administer a slow-release fertiliser every three months or so. Fertilising too often can affect the lushness of the leaves, in which case the soil will need replacing.
