How should a Hawaiian palm be cared for?

Tropical plants love tropical soil, for which special nutrient soils have been formulated: Florentus Mediterranean soil. This helps them to root well and provide a good nutrient base. We recommend that the palm is kept warm and receives a lot of light, which it loves and cannot get over a dark cold spot. Pamper your palm with Palm Focus and make sure it receives all the right nutrients, making it extra strong and preserving its beautiful colours.
