|You can grow these plants outdoors during the spring and summer months but they are not frost hardy and will need to go back indoors in the fall before the temperatures get too cold. You can plant the majestic palm and the lucky bamboo in a single pot because they both have the same watering needs but your desert rose should go into a container by itself because it likes soils on the dry side. Use containers with lots of drainage holes on the bottom and fill the containers with moistened potting soil. Plant each plant at the same soil level as it was growing in the original pot. Water well after transplanting to help settle the soil. Keep the soil moist but not soggy wet for your palm and lucky bamboo; allow the top half inch of soil to dry out between waterings for your desert rose. Best wishes with your plants.
