|Palms need little maintenance and most thrive with adequate water and an organic mulch placed over the soil once a year. Use aged-compost or aged-manure and broadcast about a one-inch layer over the soil. As you water the nutrients will be leached from the organic mulch and travel down into the root zone of your palm.
