- It loves light, but doesn't want sun all day, except in winter when this is no problem.
- Do water regularly, about once a week in winter and twice a week in summer.
- The soil should always stay slightly moist, but please do not allow to stand in the water. Do not water in a dish from underneath, but instead on top of the root ball. This way you can make sure that the smaller palm trees with shorter roots get enough water.
- Spray the golden cane palm daily preferably. Especially in winter when the heating is on and the humidity is dry. The plant is sensitive to the cold here in the Netherlands, so use nice lukewarm water.
