I just recently received 3 trees, they are a Raphis Palm, Kentia Palm, and a Bird of Paradise Tree. They are already 6 feet tall. What is the proper care for these trees?? They are being housed in Pennsylvania right now. I do aplogize for the spelling of the names, they may be slightly off. I would appreciate any information you may have for me.

light, especially when grown indoors. Soil should be rich, moist and loamy.

Use a slow-release fertilizer such as 18-18-18. A high nitrogen, high potassium fertilizer can be used during the summer growing season. The large leaves may become tattered in wind. When this happens, the outermost leaves can be removed.
