What is the best way to grow a Bottle Palm (Hyophorbe Lagenicaulis) in a container to maximize the width of the trunk? I live in Boca Raton, FL and the pots are in full sun.

Wendy,

Trunk width comes with time and container size. The larger the plant becomes the wider the trunk can become. So choose a large container and keep the plant in good light, well watered and fed, etc. Bottle palm prefers bright dappled sun but can take full sun if kept adequately watered.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
