Queen Palms are considered moderately fast growing palms, putting out 3-4 fronds per year. To keep them healthy, use a granular palm food such as ?Plant Magic palm food?. Granular foods should be applied every 3 months, according to label directions. Your Queen Palm should be deeply watered every week during the cool weather and twice a week during the summer months.

Best wishes with your Queen Palm!
