Alica,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Keep the soil moist with out keeping in it soggy. Fertilize lightly once or twice a year with a complete fertilizer product following label rates. Bottle palm prefers broken shade but it can take full sun if provided adequate water during dry periods.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
